What Makes Our Community Strong

My name is Alex Hunt, and I am privileged to have been extended the opportunity write a regular column on legal issues affecting families in our community. I focus my practice on family law, helping individuals and families who are in need of a strong advocate get the guidance and support they deserve.

I love our community—it’s where my wife and I are raising our daughters, where my daughters are attending school, and where I am privileged to work everyday with families from all walks of life.

When it comes to the families I work with, both here in Katy and throughout the Houston area, there is one truth that universally applies, despite outward appearances: every family is unique and distinctive in its own way.

Romans 12:6-8 tells us, “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us…if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”

Every family has its own gifts, its own challenges, its own private shortcomings and victories, and at some point in their lives, every member of every family struggles to find their place and purpose in our world. Everyday, families change, families grow, families mature, and families adapt to life’s changes and challenges.

But those differences are what make our community so strong and what makes my work so worthwhile.

Some families have stepparents, some have stepbrothers and stepsisters, some have adopted children, and some have foster siblings. All families are different, but what each has in common is simple: love. No matter what its makeup or structure or appearance, whether the parents are in one house or two, whether the kids are foster or adopted, family is love.

In future columns, I look forward to continuing the conversation on a variety of legal issues affecting families in our community. Because no family is the same, no legal issue is the same, and I look forward to exploring those challenges and solutions together.

“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us…if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” – Romans 12:6-8
