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 re-binding and painting a Bible. Now she spends her days designing new products, dreaming up beautiful things, and of course, painting. Katie’s walk with Jesus began after her graduation from high school when her best friend invited her to a Young Life camp. It was there that she decided a life with Jesus was for her. Katie has a heart for ministry, entrepreneurship, and exciting women about engaging with the word of God. You can find Katie in some fun earrings and covered in paint. She’s an Enneagram 3w4, loves planting flowers in her garden, 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 our founder, 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 the warehouse operations and order fulfillment at Hosanna Revival. She wraps up your Bibles, keeps track of incoming and outgoing orders, and ships your happy mail. Alexa started her journey with the Lord after she graduated high school when a friend laid out the gospel to her. Alexa is an enneagram 7, and loves to embrace and share the joy found in a life following Jesus. She is our personal enneagram advisor, and helped Will figure out that he is actually a 1, and not a 5. On any given day can be found singing in her car or dancing in the living room with her husband Sam.
Erica loves to care for our wholesale customers and PR needs. She has known the Lord most of her life and has truly experienced the power of God's redemption and grace in her life. Erica is passionate about Young Life and leading high school girls to know that same power of redemption in their own life. She is an Enneagram 6: loyal to her friends and beliefs. After work she can be found leading Young Life at Miamisburg HS, spending time with her amazing family, wedding planning with her fiancé, Sam, or cozied up on the couch with a good movie. Benny is definitely her favorite co worker.
At Hosanna Revival, Mandy takes care of all things graphic design, photography and styling! Her sophomore year of high school, she was invited to a Young Life weekend retreat. 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. Apart from Hosanna Revival, she spends her time leading Young Life at Monroe High School, making music, snuggling with her pup, Charlie, and being a Taylor Swift body double.
Kendall loves to support, assist and take care of the Hosanna Revival team in whatever way she can; whether it be memorizing policies or sitting down with a team member chatting about the busy work week ahead. She also takes cares of our customers at Hosanna Revival, making their Hosanna experience the best it can be. Kendall has loved and followed Jesus since she can remember, and desires to know, love and be like Him more and more each day. When she isn’t reciting the Employee Handbook word for word, you can find her hanging out with her husband, Josh, or laughing with her family who also happens to be her best friends. Kendall is an Enneagram 2, obsessed with beautiful sunsets, and absolutely loves big hugs from the people she loves.
Will is the data-slinging dude here at Hosanna Revival. He spends his days poring over digital ads data and analytics reports, tweaking our website to make it the best it can be, and drinking all the coffee. He also loves to help out with photography and graphic design when needed. Will gave his life to Jesus as a 5 year-old boy in an old Baptist church in Michigan. He loves to study theology and is passionate about preaching and teaching the Bible. When he’s not at Hosanna, he enjoys hiding out in his reading room and spending time with his gorgeous wife, Alicia, and his beautiful, handsome, striking sons. Will is an Enneagram 1, and thinks we all need to cool it with the Enneagram just a little bit.
Benny is a 5 year old Bernese Mountain dog. Katie and Nick adopted him in the fall of 2018, and he’s been capturing the heart of everyone he meets ever since. Enneagram 6, always looking for love, peanut-butter obsessed, and knows how to speak, sit, shake, and hug.
