Lorenzo Snow: Birthday

Former president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Born: April 3, 1814
Died: October 10, 1901

Lorenzo Snow (1814–1901) was an influential leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), serving as its fifth President from 1898 until his death. Born in Ohio, Snow joined the LDS Church in his early twenties and quickly became known for his missionary zeal and leadership abilities. He played a significant role in the church’s expansion and settlement of Utah.

Snow’s tenure as president was marked by several notable developments. He emphasized the importance of personal revelation and individual spiritual growth, famously encapsulated in the phrase “As man now is, God once was; as God now is, man may be.” This concept, known as “the Lorenzo Snow couplet,” became a cornerstone of LDS theology.

During his presidency, Snow also focused on financial stability for the church, promoting the principles of thrift and self-reliance among its members. He encouraged the practice of tithing, which remains a central tenet of LDS doctrine.

Lorenzo Snow’s legacy extends beyond his time as President of the LDS Church. His teachings continue to shape the faith and practices of millions of Latter-day Saints worldwide, and his emphasis on personal spirituality and financial stewardship remains influential within the church today.
