Letter from the Publisher

It’s hard to believe, but another school year is upon us, and summer is almost over! To tell you the truth, I am always excited when our first autumn cool front passes through, and summer ends. Summers here are ridiculously hot.

This issue features our annual Back to School resource guide. Be sure to check this out; we’ve spotlighted many great schools and after school activities that could help your child get connected.

On a more serious note, our nation is in the midst of a spiritual crisis. I’ve lived on this planet for nearly 56 years, and I have never seen as much deeply displayed hatred as what I see now. Mass shootings and other horrendous acts of violence have become commonplace in our nation, and no one is talking about the root cause. If you wear a MAGA hat or shirt in public these days, you are often assaulted, or worse.

Our problems will be solved by neither Republicans nor Democrats. All they do (particularly the Democrats) is further fuel our crisis. As far as I’m concerned, the media plays a big part in our nation’s predicament. It pits rich against poor, men against women, black against white, and so on, and then speculates about why people commit hateful acts. The media calls our President a traitor, felon and racist, and when he defends himself, it is outraged.

To begin healing our country, we need a great revival. Revival begins with the church, and in order for the church to make an impact, we must not be ashamed of the Gospel. Take action by leading others to Christ. Then and only then will we see a difference in our land.

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.
