Letter from the Publisher

Wow. It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over! I pray that you have had a wonderful summer thus far, and spent plenty of quality time with your families. My youngest son, Jeremiah, is about to start his senior year of high school and my baby Naomi is entering her sophomore year. Where does the time go?

In this issue, we are featuring an article on a very good friend of mine, Tracy Walker. Tracy is a wonderful person with many involvements. She is the owner of her own State Farm Insurance agency in Sugar land, a Rotarian, and an outstanding Christian. She is also a single mother of three remarkable children. However, recently Tracy was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in her liver and pancreas. I encourage you, our faithful readers, to keep her in your prayers. The article in this issue will fill you in on further details to her plight.

I also have another urgent prayer request for one of our magazine’s talented writers, Jessa McClure. Jessa joined our staff a little over two years ago and is the wife of a pastor. She truly understands what it means to let the life of Christ shine through her. The articles that she writes for our magazines are inspirational.

Jessa was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. Thankfully it is not cancerous. However, because of its size and position inside of her brain, it does require surgery. Once again, I call to you, our readers, to keep this remarkable woman of God in your prayers.

On a brighter note, Fort Bend Christian magazine is celebrating our Second Anniversary with this issue. We would like to thank all of you for making us a success! For going on two years, we’re proud to bring you a Christ-focused and family oriented magazine. We’re able to deliver this loving message because of our advertisers, and want our readers to support those advertisers you see in our publications. Please be sure to let them know you appreciate the fact that they advertise with us, and let them know where you saw their ad. Have a wonderful Labor Day and may the Lord richly bless you!

Joseph Menslage

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. Joe Menslage also hosts a weekly political satire YouTube channel. Joe Menslage has four children. Outside of work, he enjoys hiking, watching zombie movies and K dramas, ax-throwing and Krav Maga.
