Katie has had one mission in mind since since launching her creative brand four years ago: excite women to engage in Scripture by creating beautiful and intentional tools for their lives. By paving the way in the market for beautiful Bibles and other faith based tools, Hosanna Revival has become a well-known Christian brand among young women. As the brand has grown, Katie is so honored to continue providing truth and encouragement to the Hosanna Revival community through products, social media platforms, and events.
The story of Hosanna Revival’s growth is laced with big risks, big dreams, and a very faithful God. It all began when Katie decided to paint her plain, black, bilingual Bible in 2015. She wanted the cover to reflect the beauty she knew was on the inside of this timeless book. She immediately saw the business and ministry that this could become, and launched a small online shop. The Lord provided her with all that she needed to grow her unique idea into a thriving business.
Katie is passionate about studying the Bible and has seen it transform her relationship with Christ. She deeply desires to see that same passion come alive in other women. Community has become an important aspect of Hosanna Revival as thousands of women learn how to dig deeper into the Word and encourage one another to do the same. Katie has learned so much through owning her own creative business, leading a team, and seeking to follow God. She’s eager to help other creators do the same in their ministries, businesses, and callings. Keeping Christ the center of her business, relationships, marriage, and ministry has always been her number one priority-- she credits all of the Glory to God for guiding each and every step of the journey.

I had so much fun catching up with Jennifer Wagner on this week's episode! She and I met at She Speaks in 2018 in line for an appointment to talk with a publisher and I was so inspired by her story and her heart.
Jennifer Wagner is using her massive weight-loss and health journey to share some pretty great truths. On her body-positivity and healthy-living blog she shares how becoming your healthiest self can happen through simple changes like moving, fueling, and loving your body well. She coaches and mentors ladies around the world and in person, right where she lives, in south Florida. Jennifer understands first hand that you can truly learn to love yourself exactly as you are today, while journeying toward the healthiest version of you. When she's not aspiring to change the world's view on body image and healthy living, she can be found playing with her two littles, reading about the enneagram, and drinking all. the. coffee.

Valerie was the only daughter of missionary parents, Elisabeth and Jim Elliot. They were missionaries to the Quichua Indians of the Amazon jungle and in 1956, while attempting to reach the Waodani Indians with 4 other missionaries, Jim was speared to death in January of 1956. Elisabeth and Valerie continued to live with the Quichuas until miraculously they were invited to live with the Waodani tribe that had killed Jim. They lived with these Indians for 2 years in safety and contentment, as Elisabeth and another missionary, Rachel Saint learned to speak the language and translated the story of Jesus to them.
It was such an honor to have Valerie on the show to share her testimony and the story of her parents Jim and Elisabeth. You're not going to want to miss this episode! We also talked about her new book, Devotely, that includes letters that she found that her parents exchanged during their courtship. It's a beautiful book and, if you've read any books by the Elliots, you'll love having your hands on these letters and getting to read more about their lives!

This week's interview is just so much fun! Emily Ann Roberts and I met a few years ago and I couldn't hardly WAIT to sit down and talk with her. She was a finalist on Season 9 of NBC's The Voice (Team Blake, duh) and is originally from my favorite place- Knoxville, Tennessee. Her EP Someday Dream came out last year and ya'll, it's so good. She lives in Nashville now, she just got engaged, she loves Jesus and she's just too much fun. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did!

I met John when he spoke at a conference in Washington DC many years ago. I loved his story and was so inspired by him! Years later, I was so blessed to have the opportunity to sit down and talk with him about his story, writing books and how his platform has grown over the years. You're going to love this conversation and John's books!
In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given 1% chance to live. This epic story of survival was first showcased in his parents’ book, Overwhelming Odds, in 2006. Originally printing 200 copies for friends and family, his parents have sold 70,000 copies, most in back-of-room sales at John’s speaking events. It was this book that first invited John to embrace his miraculous recovery and share it with the world.
John inspires nearly 75,000 people at 100+ events each year. He speaks to companies and organizations across industries, such as: sales, healthcare, business, safety, marketing, financial services, faith, education and insurance. Consistently described as “the best speaker we’ve ever had,” John receives nearly 100% of his engagements from referrals. His schedule is a testament to the power of his message and who he is as an individual. His emotional story-telling, unexpected humor and authenticity make each of his presentations truly transformational.
John’s first book ON FIRE: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life was an instant #1 National Bestseller; 120,000 copies have sold and it has been translated into 12 languages. John’s Live Inspired Podcast is a top 20 for business on iTunes & Inc. Magazine. His online community is 200,000 strong. John considers his greatest success to be his marriage to his wife Beth, their four children and his relationships with friends and family.

All Things New is an old band reborn. Although the group began their career ten years ago, who you see now is not who you saw when they first began. In 2016, as the four-piece prepared for another national tour, three of the band members abruptly stepped down, leaving Garrett Hornbuckle completely blindsided. What Hornbuckle learned was that although the stage offered a platform to amplify God’s goodness, it also offered a platform to amplify his insecurities. His identity was dictated by fame, and the way he lead his band became less about God’s kingdom, and more about his own.
The sudden dissolution of the group was staggering, and although Hornbuckle wanted to rid
himself of all things music, he’d made commitments he had to keep. The next year was
humbling and metamorphic, and it changed the trajectory of his life. All Things New dissolved as a band and transformed into a ministry. Now, years later with a supportive wife and a newborn daughter by his side (and all three former band members rooting him on), Hornbuckle’s investment is in proclaiming the gospel across the nation. He leads worship at various churches, encourages and coaches worship teams, and reminds everyone he can that there’s newness in Christ. When he isn’t singing for a congregation, he’s writing music with a new outlook—to build the only Kingdom that matters.
