Hosanna Revival excites people about scripture by creating a book that is as beautiful and personal as the story told on the inside. We believe that scripture can start a revival. Let's open the pages, and start one together.
Let me paint a picture for you: I’m a Cincinnati-bred, 22 year old who loves 100 lb dogs and December. I converted from a full time business student to a full time painter after dreaming up Hosanna Revival in June of 2015. I have really curly hair, and get way too excited about Christmas music in November. I am an ENFP/ Gemini if that means anything to you. I’m overly curious and driven by emotions, compassion, feelings and meaning. Above all, Jesus is all I have to offer, all I want to offer and the only name of victory I will ever claim.
I met Jesus after I graduated from high school at a Young Life camp called Lake Champion. In that moment I went from broken to whole, dead to alive, condemned to redeemed, chained to free. I plan to write a deeper blog post to share more of my story, but the big picture is this: I can’t believe that the God of the universe would use someone like me to declare His name. I am an ordinary, sinful and broken girl desperately chasing His face and His light. To Him, I am worth it, blameless and so incredibly loved. This information changed everything— I will not let a day go by without modeling this sweet love to those in my path.
I bought myself a bilingual Bible before I studied abroad in Spain. Long story short, my months in Spain were packed with new feelings of loneliness, truth and an unspeakable amount of growth. The Bible was plain black. When I returned to the states, my first task was making the outside of this Bible as beautiful as the inside made me feel. I immediately saw the ministry that this Bible could become. I am convinced that a beautiful Bible can lead even the darkest of hearts to crack it open and consider the words inside of it. I am convinced that a beautiful Bible can revive the heart of a believer gone astray by motivating them and reminding them of the truth that lies beyond the cover. I am convinced that an active Christ follower will be drawn to the foot of the cross each morning by scripture within their precious tool. Above all else, I am convinced that the words inside of this timeless book will revive this nation. Hosanna Revival exists for the sole purpose of drawing people to the word of God. This is a mission. This is a ministry. This is our revival.
