Jessica and Nathan arrived in Ridgecrest right around a year ago. He was hired as the youth pastor at our church and they made the long trek out from Louisiana to California ready to make an impact in this small town.
It's been a blessing to get to know them both over the course of this past year and when the news broke that they were expecting, the excitement and nervousness was palpable. We were there when they had their gender reveal and saw the sparkle in both of their eyes when they found out it was going to be a girl. Little River Rose will be loved big.
I'm sad I probably won't be here in town when she arrives but I am so happy to have been able to be a small part of their family memories by capturing this special time during her pregnancy. Nathan and Jessica, you will be great parents and I can't wait to see the plans God has in store for your family!
