About this author

Lorenzo Snow was the fifth president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1898 to his death. Snow was the last president of the LDS Church in the nineteenth century.

Snow was the fifth child and first son of Oliver Snow and Rosetta Pettibone, residents of Mantua, Ohio, who had left New England to settle on a new and fertile farm in the Connecticut Western Reserve. Despite the labor required on the farm, the Snow family valued learning and saw that each child had educational opportunities. Lorenzo received his final year of education at Oberlin College, which was originally founded by two Presbyterian ministers. Snow later made his living as a school teacher when not engaged in church service.

“The kingdom of god... or nothing!!!”
Lorenzo Snow

“When you find yourselves a little gloomy, look around you and find somebody that is in a worse plight than yourself; go to him and find out what the trouble is, then try to remove it with the wisdom which the Lord bestows upon you; and the first thing you know, your gloom is gone, you feel light, the Spirit of the Lord is upon you, and everything seems illuminated.”
Lorenzo Snow

“We trace the hand of the Almighty in framing the Constitution of our land”
