Bring The Family Back Together

Let's start a parenting revolution!

Family is sometimes the greatest treasure we have.  Sometimes, we focus so much on material things that we forget what's really important.  I'm Roxana Guy, the founder and main writer at Just Add That.  I started this blog as a money venture.  What I didn't know when I started is exactly how many people were as clueless about parenting as I am.  The reality is, we're all learning along the way no matter what age you are.  Some parents fake it way better than others do.  For real parents like me, faking is not the best choice.  The reality is, people are people, and if you're trying as a parent, know that you are awesome.
The more I talk to people and meet others, the more I realize the nuclear family is still out there but fast becoming an endangered species.  There are so many blended families with parents, step parents, grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and even friends suddenly being put in situations they never thought they'd be.  The reality is life doesn't always go the way we thought it would.  Some people have every life goal itemized with a game plan to get what they want.  Others are coasting through life just existing.
Where ever you are in your parenting style, know that there's one thing we all have in common.  We all love our families!  And that's why I changed my goals with Just Add That to be a blog geared more around what has worked for me and what others have taught me along the way.

There was a man in Nashville working at a gas station one day.  I had to pee, and I jogged into the bathroom doing my pee pee dance.
After my sweet release, I decided that maybe I would be up for a snack and a water.  I grabbed my items and went to the register.  The cashier was in a terrible mood.  While he was on the clock, someone had hit his car and had bent his front tire and axle under his undercarriage.  He had no idea how he was going to pay for it.
We talked further, and we began discussing our backgrounds.  He's from Egypt.  However, the US wasn't exactly what he thought it would be.
"Everybody talks about money.  Money, money, money," he explained.  "What about family?  What about your values and neighbors?  That's what I miss about Egypt."
The reality was I hadn't really thought about it until then.  We are a very materialistic society, and when we need someone the most, we feel so lonely and empty.
And that's why I am so excited to be writing this blog.  I am ready to bring back the focus to our families!  Let's start raising a generation of kids that are family oriented and filled with great values.

New Series: An Encouraging Image of the Week

Encouraging Image of the Week

This blog is a little new to me and will not be updated very often for a bit starting out, but I want to try every week to post an image of the week encouraging out followers not to be discouraged with what is going on in their lives.  While most of my work is put into my primary blog, Just Add That, I do want to have a home for all of my Christian ideals and morals.  After all, I wouldn't have a business if it wasn't for the Lord, and he's blessed me more than I deserve.  

So let's get to our encouraging image of the week!  Here goes:

See you guys next week for our next image of the week!

Find Encouragement This Week By Clicking Here!

Take what you have today, and make it the best today you've had yet!

No matter what, take a moment to celebrate that you are alive right here and now!  Your victory is you!  Success doesn't come from money or materialism.  Success comes from understanding that your life is precious and so special.  The fact that you are here right now reading this is a victory and such a blessing.  Be encouraged by today's scripture.  It comes from John 16:33 KJV:

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Be sure to join us at 6 pm CST on our group Just Add Faith for our live stream broadcast, Prayer Talk.  We discuss everything that has happened during the week and hot topics in the Christian world.  We pray together and we uplift and encourage each other to make it through each week.  Don't miss out!  Join our group today by clicking here

Welcome To Just Add Faith

If you've been on our Facebook page, here is our faith based posts here!  

Our main site is Just Add That.  It's a blog all about how to help people grow as bloggers and turn their businesses into internet money making machines.  

But Just Add Faith is different.  It's about growing closer to the Lord.  My name is Roxana Guy, and while I pride myself as being a wife, mother, and online entrepreneur, I am most honored to be a Christian first and foremost.  Being privileged to serve God is amazing, and I am humbled that he would accept me as his daughter.

God is the only father I have ever known.  While my parents divorced when I was small, I never felt I was without a father.  God was always with me and guided me each and every step of the way.  He has guided me through some of the darkest periods of my life, and he has proven time again that I can always trust him.  

I don't always have a chance to write about the Lord or serve him the way I should.  But I wanted an opportunity to create a space for people to follow up, not just in our community.  

If you're looking for a place to pray and join a community of active prayer warriors, join our Facebook group!  Click here, and ask to join.  It doesn't come with tons of questions.  I have it set up privately so it's a safe space for us to pray together without all the junk and political propaganda that plagues Christians today. 

 And look out for our future posts by signing up for our email list.  I just published my first book called The Value of Time: Mastering Time Management for a More Productive Day.  And I am working on two new books.  One is a children's story written for my boys and their friends.  The other is going to be a 30 day devotional series including a 5 day free devotional email.
