They have six children, three are married with nineteen grandchildren.
Kimberly became a Catholic at the Easter Vigil of 1990 in Joliet, Illinois, after a difficult struggle during the four years following Scott’s entrance into the Catholic Church. She completed a book with Scott on their journey into the Catholic Church entitled Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism, which has been translated into more than twenty languages, including Spanish, French, Czech, Polish, Chinese, Italian, German, and Dutch.
In addition to Rome Sweet Home, she co-authored a book on Catholic home education with Mary Hasson entitled, Catholic Education – Homeward Bound: A Guide to Home Schooling. Kimberly’s other books include Life-Giving Love: Embracing God’s Beautiful Design for Marriage, and a 4-part series on the Proverbs 31 woman: Chosen and Cherished; Graced and Gifted; Beloved and Blessed; and Legacy of Love. She has also contributed chapters to each of the four volumes of Catholic for a Reason, as well as The Gift of Femininity and The Fabric of Life.
Kimberly homeschooled her children for 26 years. When she retired, she wondered what to do with her free time. Kimberly has recently won a second term as Council-at-Large in Steubenville, OH.
