Letter from the President & Publisher-In-Chief

As our hot summer months come to a close, we experience many mixed feelings toward the upcoming “Back to School” season. I, for one, am nostalgic as I watch my children grow into amazing young adults with each passing year. 

My two oldest are in college and my two youngest are in high school. It seems like it was only yesterday that I was holding my first son Gabriel’s tiny hand and walking him to his preschool class- he is now venturing out into the world as a junior in college. Even my youngest, Naomi, is starting high school this year. 

As all parents know, children are the Lord’s greatest gift to us and it is our responsibility to value them and ensure that they grow up with a good head on their shoulders. Our kids grow up far too fast and in the twinkling of an eye, they’re gone. I once heard a saying- “live every day as though it’s your last, because one day it will be.” I say to you- cherish every second with your child as if it’s the last because one day that will be the case.

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.” – Psalm 127:3

He founded Katy Christian Magazine in 2005, which swept the greater Houston and Katy areas like a storm.

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.
