By Kim Roberts God works in mysterious ways for sure. Things that are not even on our radar manifest at the most perfect time. I had been at my job for six years, working parttime and not actively looking for a new job. I was comfortable where I was, used to the routine and liked […]
By Kim Roberts My youngest daughter, just like my oldest daughter, is a competitive cheerleader, meaning she cheers year-round. Practices start in the summer with competition season kicking off in the fall and going through the new year, culminating with the Super Bowl of cheerleading – The Summit held at ESPN in Walt Disney World.
By Kim Roberts I recently attended a Council of Catholic School Cooperative Clubs meeting at St. Clement of Rome in Metairie, and Father Andrew Rudmann, parochial vicar of the parish, addressed the group. He captured my attention immediately with his first question, “How long do your children exist?” After a moment, everyone knew the answer, […]
By Kim Roberts I was watching a documentary in January about basketball legend Kobe Bryant commemorating his life on the one-year anniversary of his tragic death. During the documentary, several things stood out – one being the reason he changed his jersey number from 8 to 24 while playing for the Lakers. While most […]
By Kim Roberts Hands down, one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had the privilege of undertaking is becoming a mother to three perfect (most of the time) children. I would not trade one moment of being a mother for anything in the world. Nothing has meant more to me or been more rewarding […]
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.

By Kim Roberts Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. For the past 20 years, I have had the honor of cooking for my family and extended family in my home. I enjoy planning the menu, the prep work, getting up before dawn on Thanksgiving Day to start cooking the turkey and setting […]
By Kim Roberts In his introductory remarks in the White House Rose Garden during a press conference, President Trump noted that Amy Coney Barrett, if confirmed, would be the first female Supreme Court justice with school-aged children. Wow. That really made me pause. A woman with seven children could soon be a justice in the […]
By Kim Roberts Being a woman of a particular age, I recall attending Mass every Sunday with my family dressed in “church clothes.” My sister and I almost always wore dresses or skirts, my brother always wore dress trousers with tucked in button-down shirts, and we all wore dress shoes. We never questioned it; we […]
