HtH Board of Directors

Karin Lavoie

Karin’s life has been shaped by careers involving books and music. She understands the world of musicians and ministry and using one’s artistic gifts and talents in a way that draws people to reflect seriously on both matters of the heart and mind and on how their actions become part of the larger story. She cares deeply about how our spirituality is formed in a Christian context. Karin is intrigued by and supportive of the vision of HtH and is honored to put her ‘shoulder to the wheel’ to help HtH realize its vision.
