Hi, my name is Leslie Galvan. I’ve been attending BCF Church for 15 years. I have been married to my husband, Aaron, for 9 years. I am currently the Celebrate Recovery Ministry assistant. I love to cook, create new recipes, sing, podcast, write and in recent years, CrossFit. I have a food blog, and my husband and I also have a podcast.
...And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. - Matthew 2:9
Sometimes the journey that God has you on is long, but it’s so worth it to say, “Yes!”
My husband, Aaron, and I have been married just over nine years, and before we married, we discussed adoption and how we both felt led to adopt children even if God gave us a biological child. Over the years it’s come up in conversation, but it wasn’t until this year that we finally decided to follow that leading - we are going to adopt.
Making that decision has been very scary for me. Many times, I’ve thought, “What am I saying ‘Yes’ to? Am I sure this is what God wants?”
As we’ve begun this road toward adoption, God has shown us over and over that we are doing exactly what He wants us to do, and I’ve imagined that it is exactly what the wise men felt like as they followed the star to Jesus. They didn’t really know where they were going but they had faith that when they found that star, Jesus, their Messiah would be there.
Aaron and I have quite a journey ahead of us, but we are so excited to finally be answering that call in this area of our lives.
Is there something that you know God wants you to do but you are afraid to say “yes” to?
