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!

He's Calling

Not too long ago, Dad called me.  Like always, I got very excited and a big smile took over as I saw “Dad calling” pop up on my phone.  It’s my Dad!  I call and talk to my dad practically every Sunday to check in on the animals, him and Thea, and see how things are going.  There’s just something super special about the time we chat that I truly cherish.

About an hour after I got off the phone that day he called me, I thought to myself, “Do I get that excited when God calls me?  Do I always hear Him and know that it’s Him when He calls?” 

I thought about how Samuel mistakes God’s voice back in 1 Samuel 3 for Eli a few times before Eli told Samuel to “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.” (v. 9) And then God responded to Samuel with a vision.

How do we respond to God’s callings? Whether it be to serve? Or to change something? Or to treat someone who has hurt you Christ-like and to keep on loving and praying for them?

How has God revealed Himself to you lately? Through His word? By talking to you? Have you seen Him?  Or are you too busy?  Have you heard Him and ignored Him because you were scared? Or maybe you have felt His presence through a song?

God cherishes time with us, just like I cherish time with my Dad (even if it’s via a phone call).  How’s your time with the Lord going these days?
