Letter from the Publisher

Spring is in the air! We’ve just experienced the blessings of Easter. Ahead lies that all-so-very special occasion — Mother’s Day — which is fast approaching May 13th. It seems like only yesterday that my four children had their loving mother in their lives. Unexpectedly, the Lord took Nicole in a car accident, leaving me with an 8, 10, 12 and 14-year-old. It is faith, trust and hope in the afterlife that has guided my family through the tragedy. My children are such blessings and Nicole’s legacy lives on through our two sons and two daughters. We at Katy Christian Magazine honor all mothers, grandmothers and mothers-in-laws in this issue, as life isn’t quite the same without these revered maternal figures.

We pay tribute to our veterans, as well. Memorial Day will be held May 28th this year.

It’s definitely a time of contemplation . . . and celebration. You’ll find our April/May 2012 issue full of beneficial articles and news. We honor two wonderful mothers, T. Denise Clary, a Christian children’s book author, and Kerryl Ann Frank, a music artist. We also tell you about Jason Rorie and his efforts on behalf of the returning military — Tech for Vets, a 501c3, refurbishes computers for veterans.

With spring comes thoughts of our kiddos, who are getting closer to the end of another school year. With them in mind we feature Tank’s Paintball — a venue for good “clean” fun this spring and summer. And because many children will have free time on their hands over summer break, we also interview an Internet safety expert, Charles Mazzini, who addresses cyber-bullying, cyber-stalking, online dangers and the importance of parental oversight against online cyber-paths.

We feature wonderful Christian students, a Christian business, a pastor who is “planting,” and lots of colorful commentary on everything from health to politics. This issue also features a robust voter’s guide, so sit back, relax, and enjoy!

In Joe’s words, our innate talents are given by the Lord, and are meant to be used to serve the Lord. Aside from being a President and Publisher, Joe Menslage is also the co-founder of Katy Christian Chamber of Commerce, where Christians can network, build business connections, listen to passionate speakers, and enjoy monthly breakfasts and lunches.
