Excite women about engaging in Scripture by creating beautiful and intentional tools for their lives.
In 2015 while studying in Spain, our founder Katie had the idea to re-bind and paint her bilingual Bible. It was plain black- she wanted her Bible to be beautiful and personal, reflecting the way the words on the inside made her feel. Katie immediately saw the ministry that this could become. She spent the next few weeks trying out different materials and processes- creating what is now Hosanna Revival.
Truly, it was a simple concept: when you get a new planner, you’re excited to organize. When you get a new journal, you’re excited to fill it up. When you get a new traveling coffee mug, all of the sudden you take your coffee to-go. What if, a new and beautiful Bible would excite you to actually open it up and read it?
We are convinced that a beautiful Bible can lead even the darkest heart to crack it open and consider the words inside of it. We are convinced that a beautiful Bible can revive the heart of a believer gone astray by motivating them and reminding them of the truth beyond the cover. We are convinced that an active Christ follower will be drawn to the foot of the cross each morning by the scripture within their precious tool. Above all else, we are convinced that the words inside of this timeless book will revive our world.
THE AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE
We believe that the Bible, consisting of the 66 books, is the only inspired, trustworthy and true, Word of God. We believe there is one God, the Creator of all things, infinitely holy and eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Bible is without error, and is the only final authority in all matters of faith and practice. We believe that the true beauty of the Bible absolutely lies within its pages.
Katie founded Hosanna Revival in 2015 after simply re-binding and painting a Bible. Now she spends her days designing new products, dreaming up beautiful things, and of course, painting. Katie met the Lord after her graduation from high school when her best friend invited her to a Young Life camp called Lake Champion. It was there that she decided a life with Jesus was for her. Katie has a heart for ministry and and exciting women about engaging with the word of God. You can find Katie dressed in Anthropologie and covered in paint. She’s a poster-child Enneagram 3, loves a good hot latte, and can most likely be found daydreaming about her next trip with her husband Nick.
Husband of the founder, Nick “drives the boat” here at Hosanna Revival. His walk with the Lord started when he was a freshman in high school. A friend of his swooped in during a time of need, cared for him, and showed him the genuine love of Christ. Days before marrying the starter, Nick left the corporate world and joined the team on a mission to grow Hosanna Revival. Nick identifies himself as an Enneagram 9 and is passionate about UI/UX design. He likes to drink his coffee straight up black (skip all the extra stuff) and proudly calls himself a corn dog enthusiast.
Alexa takes care of our customers at Hosanna Revival. She wraps up your Bibles, answers your questions, and ships out your happy mail. Alexa started walking with the Lord after high school when a friend laid out the gospel to her. She knew then that she wanted to proclaim the Good News for the rest of her life. Alexa has a huge passion for serving others, and has been excited about the mission of Hosanna from the get-go. She loves Lord of The Rings and on any given day can be found dancing in her car or in her kitchen with her husband Sam.
Erica loves to care for our wholesale customers and PR needs. She has known the Lord most of her life but it wasn’t until her junior year of college when she took Isaiah 43:1-2 to heart, and let Jesus truly take control her life. After work hours, she can be found leading Young Life in Miamisburg, OH, spending time with her niece and nephews, or cozied up on the couch with a good movie. She is an Enneagram 2, lover of white-chocolate-peppermint-mochas, and is absolutely obsessed with our office dog, Benny.

It was there that she gave her life to Christ and became a Christian. Mandy hopes to seek creativity and beauty that clearly reflects the gospel of Jesus Christ and His nature in everything she does. She’s an enneagram 4, and when she’s needing a coffee boost, her go to order is a vanilla and caramel latte.
