Letter From The Publisher

Autumn greetings! Cooler weather is visiting Katy and the signs of October and November are upon us. As we enjoy fall festivals and look forward to Thanksgiving, we also face an election year like no other.

I hope you enjoy our fall issue, filled with interesting editorial across the spectrum. We visit with a renowned couple of professional gymnasts. We interview a presidential candidate from the heart of our own community. We learn of the inspiring Christian roots of a boot camp. We include a profile of a pastor who is also an author. And we share a retrospective of the first Thanksgiving.

It is with a spirit of Thanksgiving that we’ll navigate toward November and the celebratory nature of feasting and festivities. With our loved ones around us, let us all enjoy good food and good company and thank the Lord for another year.

It is my hope that you vote and join Christians throughout the national in earnest prayer regarding the fate of our great nation. This election is much more than a nail-biter. It could very well be a game-changer. The outcome will impact us and our children’s children. Yet regardless of who is president of the United States, we must believe that God is in control, the ultimate Lord of all mankind. We’ll discuss the outcome in upcoming issues, so stay tuned.

We wish you much happiness in this new season and point you toward our Christian advertisers. Please support them as they support the Christian community by offering goods and services that you can trust.

As the President and Publisher of Katy and Fort Bend Christian Magazines, Joe Menslage is committed to covering social and political news from a Christian worldview. He founded Katy Christian Magazine in 2005, which swept the greater Houston and Katy areas like a storm. That’s when Joe realized the urgent need for publications willing to give voices to the voiceless, without political correctness or censorship. Joe Menslage founded sister-publication Fort Bend Christian Magazine in 2014. Prior to creating Katy Christian Magazine, Joe Menslage led a colorful life. He was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, spent a great deal of his childhood in Colorado, and lived in a couple of other states before he moved to Houston in 1981. Joe was God-gifted with an entrepreneurial mind, and self-started other business ventures before he found his calling. 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.
