Letter From The Publisher

School’s out and our kiddos are home for the summer. The challenge is to keep them busy while balancing an element of “down time,” so they can enjoy a break from academics and “just be kids.”

To help, we’ve put together a list of Christian films made in Texas by a handful of producers. Most are geared toward youth, so take a look and see what might enhance your video library.

Your kiddos may also enjoy our feature on Christian Comedians—although we really wrote it for Dad. With Father’s Day upon us, it makes sense to give dads what they really want, which is “fun time” with the family. We identified the top five Christian comedians who will surely have the family laughing out loud. Their DVDs and You Tube clips really are hilarious. So enjoy Father’s Day, and we hope you get a lot of chuckles out of our suggestions.

For our Pastor Profile this issue, we are shouting out the chaplains at Methodist West Hospital who assist patients and families during the most trying times. They work in an interfaith environment as medical issues merge with faith journeys, sometimes in life or death situations.

Speaking of medical issues, we interviewed the wonderful Dr. Lin , who has a Katy practice and a spiritual walk that all of us seek in a physician. We also interviewed Dr. Torres about his mission work. Truly, our Katy doctors are among the best in the nation, and it’s nice to know so many share the faith.

We also have a Christian business profile, some student profiles, and news about Katy’s own Kristin Bumbera. This wife, mother and NASCAR racecar driver is back on the track, doing what she does best.

We’ve kicked off the summer with lots of fun and resources we hope you’ll enjoy. Follow along, and, as always, support our Christian advertisers. They have the ethics and values we seek as Christian consumers. God bless them, and God bless you, our readers! Have a terrific June and July!
