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!

Prayer

Both Carter and I have been pretty big prayer warriors for quite some time now. If we say we are going to pray for you, then we seriously do just that. We pray! We have seen the difference our prayer time makes in our lives as well as others.

However, I have noticed as I continue to strengthen my relationship with God that my prayer life has shifted.  It's not just the "Please get me there safely" or "Let me pass that test" or "please give me ____"...they aren't like Carter would say "Santa Clause prayers" any more. (Or at least not as much.) I find myself praising Him for who He is instead of focusing on materialistic wants and needs that aren’t aligned with His will. I believe He really is who He says He is and thank Him constantly for that. I stay excited about my time with Him now, whether it be one-liners throughout my day or for a longer time frame.  I will admit that it's taken me years to not feel awkward praying, to know that it's okay if I don't know what to say (The Holy Spirit intercedes.), to not be embarrassed to pray out loud in front of people, ...  Just like with any thing else, we have to start somewhere, right?


What's your prayer life like? Is it a chore? Does it come easy? Is it a "give me __" session? We read in scripture that Jesus prayed...so that in itself, tells us that we should, too. Let us know how we can be praying for you.
