Say Yes to New Adventures in April

Hi Katy friends! As we launch into April in Katy, I am excited to take on a new role as your Associate Publisher with absolutely! Katy Magazine. My family and I have lived in Katy for 11 years now, and it is truly a place that has seeped into my heart and soul. My husband and children are everything to me, and to live in a community that values families and heart as much as Katy does is a true blessing and one I don’t take for granted. I have lived all over the country, and when we moved here, I immediately felt home. They say home is where the heart is, and we found ours in Katy.

One thing you should know about me is that I love quotes. I recently saw a poster that said, “We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong.” It seemed to speak to me this month, and I hope it speaks to you as you enjoy your April adventures. I have been blessed to be welcomed into this amazing family at absolutely! focus media, and I cannot wait to continue on my new adventure with all of you!

Our April issue is a perfect example of why I love this magazine and the Katy community. I invite you to learn all about Westside Homeless Prevention in our cover story beginning on page 10. The amazing volunteers who are involved with this organization and the difference they are making in Katy provides a life-changing advantage  to the families they help. The tools and help they provide set their clients on a path of success that cannot be denied, but is so desperately needed to equip them on life’s journey.

Be sure to take a look at What’s Kickin’ in Katy to see what’s going on this month in our amazing community. Don’t forget to send us your stories and events so we can see what adventures you are taking, and maybe we can join you on a few.

Absolutely! yours,

Liz Johnson
