Letter from the Publisher

It’s hard to believe that another school year has come and gone. My youngest daughter, Naomi, is officially a Senior! I couldn’t be more proud of her, but my feelings are bittersweet. After her final year of high school, Naomi will leave for college and I will officially be an empty-nester. As many of you have already experienced, it is such a strange feeling when the decades of your life you’ve dedicated to raising children come to an end. I myself was in school thirty-five years ago, yet it seems like just yesterday. Where does the time go? So many of us are guilty of living our lives with an immortality complex. We all understand the necessity of making plans for the tangible future, yet we so often neglect making strides toward our eternal future. Itineraries are created for our next family vacations, 401ks are taken out for our retirements. These plans are necessary for more comfortable and enjoyable lives, but as Christians we must remember that the physical world is merely a phase in our existences. Life on Earth is short; James 4:14 says, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Plan for eternity. If you haven’t accepted Christ as your savior, make that life-changing decision today. The only certainty in this world is that nobody knows what tomorrow will bring. Once you have the assurance of Salvation, do your best to live a Jesus-inspired life. Akin to saving money for your retirement on Earth, practicing attributes such as generosity, kindness,
and tolerance earns you eternal treasures in Heaven.

“19 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:19-21 New King James Version (NKJV)

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.
