Meet Our Team

The Owners


Howdy y’all! We’re Caleb and Becky Petter with our two beautiful children, Gracie (3 years) and Graham (7 years). West is our home and after venturing away to pursue careers and other adventures, we’ve returned! We’re excited for our children to grow up as we did where life is a bit slower, family is just down the road, and you see friends everywhere you go.

Here’s a little more about us…

Caleb is a West graduate, Class of 2001, and Becky is a Connally graduate, Class of 2002 – true rivals ☺. We met in high school, dated most of our college years and married in 2010. Caleb graduated from Sam Houston State University and currently operates his own HVAC company, Petter Built Heating & Cooling. Becky graduated from Baylor University and for more than a decade led marketing and communications efforts for higher education and public schools.

Opening Heavenly Harvest is truly an answer to steadfast prayer and patience. It’s our mission to provide a caring and supportive environment to grow strong, kind, and courageous children of God. There is a need for more top-notch, quality childcare and the Lord has placed it on our hearts to help provide it for our community and surrounding areas. We’re happy to be back home, surrounded by family and friends, and helping to grow the next generations.
