I hope this issue finds you exhaling from the chaos of the holiday season! Hopefully, the kids are getting ready to head back to school, as you get back to focusing on you, your health, your relationships and making time to try something new in 2019.
Our January issue is already out, so check our website www.houstonfamilymagazine.com to read the latest issue online!
This month, we go back to school as we focus on education. It is a good time to check in after a busy fall to find out how your student is progressing. If you find your student is needing a little extra help, see our article on finding a tutor. We also met up with Jacqui Stanley, an amazing teacher at Houston’s Yorkshire Academy, an artist, and children’s author. She shared with us on how her passion of protecting our oceans is being passed along to younger generations.
Our team continues to focus on issues of mental health through a series of stories that touch families in our community. We are honored to have Jim “Mattress “Mack” McIngvale share his family’s journey through Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
And, finally we introduce our 2019 Kid Model Search winners who will be our valued HFM Kid Ambassadors throughout this year. With more than 500 entries, these kids made it through several tough rounds of online voting, a professional photo shoot, and interviews. Our team is excited to share the stories of these Ambassadors as they become a part of our “staff” this year.
We are so thankful to share another year with all of you!
Here’s to 2019…Cheers!
