about the author —
Hosanna Poetry is a writer, speaker, and spoken word artist, based in Los Angeles, CA with her husband, Guy.
Hosanna speaks and performs at churches, conferences, and various other ministries throughout the US year-round, and is known for sharing the Gospel through vividly raw and powerful stories, and refreshingly accessible applications.
She has released two spoken word albums and one devotional.
I Have A New Name is her debut full-length book.
Hosanna brings a fresh new depth to anyone's journey. We had her for our entire large group time at Saddleback Church's Celebrate Recovery. She had everyone laughing and then in tears! Our group had one complaint - they wanted her to stay longer!
JOHN BAKER, Founder of Celebrate Recovery
I would recommend any church partner with Hosanna Johnson in an instant! Her heart for the Lord and for serving the Church seeps out of her in every step of the process working with her. She goes above and beyond to make sure that she is meeting the needs of each particular church she works with. Not only this, but she stays true to who she is and the passions that God has given to her. She is creative, extremely gifted, and flexible. You will not be disappointed if you choose to partner with her in your ministry area. She was such a blessing to our church and I am grateful for the time we were able to do ministry together.
JOSH BOLLEN, Director of Worship Arts at Lakeside Church
We've been fortunate enough to have Hosanna be a part of our weekend services on a couple of occasions and it has been amazing each time! Her ability to weave art and message together with such powerful delivery is a testimony to the creativity and maturity of this young artist. Regardless of demographic range of our services from one to the next, Hosanna pulled everyone in and had the attentive ear of each person in the room. Our creative arts team loved having her with us and we would highly recommend her to anyone interested in her ministry!

Hosanna has a unique God-given ability to not only captivate an audience but to communicate timeless truth in new and fresh ways that engage the hearts as well as the minds of everyone listening. She reaches the self-righteous and down-and-out with grace and truth. Her love for Jesus and her love for people is evident in everything she does.
