Letter from the Publisher

Have you ever noticed how children absorb everything? They notice every minute detail of life- a beautiful sunset, the birds singing in the trees, the clouds painting pictures in the sky. As adults, we live in the same beautiful world that we did as children; however, we’ve grown to take these things features for granted. Life grows more complicated and busier with age.

The first thing that crosses my mind when I wake up each morning is what my schedule will consist of for the day, followed by the urgency to have my kids ready for school on time. Those items are important, but far too often I neglect the one priority I should not in the mornings: God’s will for me that day. I suppose I am guilty, like so many of us, in taking God for granted.

So many people take their spouses for granted as well. As years pass in our marriages, we grow comfortable and complacent, often forgetting to compliment our wives in how beautiful they look, or taking a moment to acknowledge the fact that they’ve changed their hair. We don’t notice the new dress they are wearing, or thank them for the wonderful meals they prepare for the family. We take advantage of their permanence in our lives, and begin to neglect what we did to win their hearts initially; when we were trying to romance them and make them our wives.

This Valentine’s Day, go the extra mile to show your significant other how much they mean to you. Plan something memorable and special to remind them that if you could do it all over again, you would. Proverbs 18:22 tells us, “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”

Additionally, on April 14, please help Faith West Academy in their 5k Fun Run and 1k Walk/Run, the Resurrection Run Katy! We need lots of runners to sign up in order to make this an event a success. Visit the website for more info at www.ResurrectionRunKaty.com!

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.
