“Elder Lowell M. Snow Of the Seventy,” Ensign, May 2005, 126
Over the almost 10 years Elder Lowell Miller Snow of the Second Quorum of the Seventy has served as a full-time missionary, he has cultivated a testimony of the power of the Atonement and the importance of missionary work.
“Every good thing I have in my life is because of the Atonement,” Elder Snow says. “That’s why I like missionary work so much. I want others to experience the same blessings I have received.”
He is grateful for those who have blessed his life. “When I was growing up, my family taught and lived the gospel,” Elder Snow says. “My wife is a convert to the Church with a wonderful testimony. Priesthood leaders and teachers, older siblings, bishops, mission presidents, and stake presidents have all guided and lifted me.”
Though Elder Snow has served in many callings, the most important roles to him are being a “dad, a husband, and a disciple of Christ. The only things I’m interested in are being those things.”
Elder Snow was born on January 2, 1944, in St. George, Utah, to Rulon A. and Marian M. Snow. He met his future wife, Tamara Ann Means Snow, while both were students at Brigham Young University. The couple was married on September 8, 1966, in the Los Angeles California Temple. They have five children.
Elder Snow was serving as an Area Seventy in the Utah North Area prior to his call to serve as a member of the Seventy full-time. Elder Snow graduated from BYU with a degree in zoology and chemistry. He earned a master’s degree in guidance and counseling from Wayne State University and a law degree from the University of Utah. He has worked as an attorney and a business consultant.
Elder Snow’s other Church service includes area executive secretary, Church hosting director, mission president, stake and ward Young Men president, counselor in a stake presidency, bishop, bishop’s counselor, branch president, and full-time missionary in the West German Mission.
