Kaleb and Jessica are a newly married couple settling in to the beautiful Black Hills area. When they aren't out in the Hills trying biking, winter sports or star-gazing, you might find them in a home, sharing a meal, and talking about God's amazing faithfulness! Kaleb serves full-time at Connection and has a heart for discipleship while Jessica loves blogging about Christ, trying new recipes and teaching aerial silks.

    After serving 5 years in Louisiana, the Carlins moved to Spearfish by God's faithful timing and perfect plan. Both Kaleb and Jessica are eager to share Christ's scandalous love with others and lead God's children to His heart.
