Pray the Rosary

By Kim Roberts As October and the month of the rosary draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the goals I set for this month and did not achieve. As the month approached, I told myself I would pray the rosary every day without fail. I planned to deeply meditate on the […]

Volunteering at School is a Gift

By Kim Roberts I have been asked to be the president of the parents’ club at my daughter’s high school, much to my daughter’s chagrin.

In God’s Time – Dealing with loss

By Kim Roberts I still can not wrap my head around the recent death of a dear friend. Shannon never met a stranger, she was the most caring, giving, Christian woman that I have ever met. Her smile, which seemed to be always present, literally lit up any room she entered. In my 13 years […]
