Karen Hostoffer has recently celebrated 30 years of marriage with her husband, Bob.  Bob is a crazy busy allergist and immunologist who happens to lead a men's rosary group as well.  They have five children, four sons and one daughter.  Their oldest son, Alex, is currently in his Novitiate year with the Capuchin Franciscans, discerning a life of service to God.  Their youngest son, Zach, is a senior at Gilmour Academy.  The middle kids are Vince, Nick and Sarah.  Vince is working and engaged to be married soon.  Nick is working towards his masters in engineering, and Sarah is studying criminal justice with the goal of becoming a police officer someday. 

Karen has always enjoyed working out, especially power walking and running.  She also enjoys Pilates class and working out with a trainer at the gym.  She has a great love and devotion for Our Lady and especially for the meditative power of the Rosary.  When Karen heard about SoulCore and the opportunity to attend a training retreat, she had to say Yes!  SoulCore has truly become a work of the heart for her.
