Introducing Nathaniel Franklin…

So for those who have been following our pregnancy via the blog, my apologies for not getting something online sooner than this.

Nathaniel Franklin Ridenhour was born to two very exhausted, thankful parents on October 20, 2010 at 10:42 a.m. weighing in at 6lbs14oz, and measuring 20in long.

We are blown away by how God has answered prayer. We are humbled by the love that our family and friends has shown us, and are thoroughly convinced that God has some amazing things in store for our son.  Sorry for the long media blackout. Newparent-ness.

Man, we are blessed.

I am a pastor, a husband, a father, and a lover of Jesus. I am also an unpredictable blogger, who can go for several years without blogging a thing, and then inexplicably write a book. Perhaps this is one of those times.
