About Us

Kristin is a Southern Georgia belle, who graduated from UGA as a veterinarian May 2010. Carter grew up in NC, went on to seminary, became an ordained pastor, and has completed his doctorate of ministry. Carter resided in SC for about 7 years (4 of these years with Kristin), and we now reside in FL. After about a month of emailing, asking questions, and going through the steps of eharmony.com, we were full of excitement and became very eager to meet one another face to face. October 25, 2009, we met and enjoyed every minute together. We had no doubt God was going to strengthen our relationship with Him as well as with one another. Carter proposed August 9, 2010 on the boat in the middle of Lake Wylie at sunset. Kristin said "Yes" after some happy tears. We got married April 2, 2011 and what an amazing beautiful day that was! God has continued to bless us throughout our marriage. We look forward to see what He has in store for us each and every day. We are super blessed to be down in Boca serving the Lord. God is constantly surprising us with new callings!

Not Just Okay

(Oops…we thought we shared this one a while back, but it we overlooked it some how. Enjoy!)

While getting ready to take off from Charlotte to Boston for Carter's doctoral writing workshop, the pilot comes overhead on the speaker. "So, it looks like our brake sensor needs some work so we will have to go back to the gate. It shouldn't take long and then we will be on our way." About 30 min later, the pilot comes back on stating we will all have to gather our belongings, deplane, and hope that we can re-board and fly on in about 1.5 hours.  Yikes. We also knew this meant another flight crew would have to be called in since they would go over their daily hour quota. We had no doubt that we would make it to Boston...it was just a matter of timing. Would it be late that night/early in the morning or the next day? Yet again, we knew God had us and this plane in His hands.  He would keep all of us safe, even if that meant our initial plans changed some. God has us in the palm of His hands.  His timing is the best for us no matter what.  We definitely preferred the "detour" back to the gate than for us to be in the air and have issues landing because the brakes weren't in top shape.  I can think back to many detours in my life.  I couldn't always understand why I was going through things then, but I do know that these detours have put me where I am today, and I wouldn't change that for anything! If you are on a detour right now, don't be discouraged. Trust that God is in charge and just enjoy the ride.
