Oh it was so fun to have the Big Stallion here for the afternoon.  He flew up with Elder Cook and the presiding Bishop of the Church, Bishop Stevens for a lot of meetings.  We had a special Stake Conference and Elder Snow was the speaker.  After it was over of which we were out 20 minutes early Steve got to have lunch with us.  Only 4 hours but we got to catch up on life, the families and make promises to get together the next time we come to SLC.  Phyllis didn't get to come with him but it was great to see him and it was so easy to be together.  We love he and Phyllis and are great friends.  So look what I found on Wikipedia.  That's right we know somebody that has his bio in Wikipedia.  Pretty cool, huh?  But they missed that he married Phyllis Squire and has 4 boys and 12 grandkids.  Pretty cool.

Steven Erastus Snow (born November 23, 1949) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since 2001. He currently serves as the Church Historian and Recorder, as well as executive director of the Church History Department. In July 2012, he was appointed by U.S. President Barack Obama as a member of the President's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Membership on the council is generally a one-year appointment. 
Snow was born in St. George, Utah into a Latter-day Saint family. As a young man, he served as a missionary for the LDS Church in West Germany. Prior to his call as a general authority, Snow was a bishop, stake president, and president of the church's California San Fernando Mission. In 1999, he became an area seventy in the Utah South Area of the Church.
Snow became a general authority and a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy in April 2001. He began service as a member of the seven-man Presidency of the Seventy on August 1, 2007. In that capacity, Snow was responsible for overseeing the work of the church in the North America Central Area and later the three areas in Utah.
On January 10, 2012, Snow's future assignment as Church Historian and Recorder was announced. Snow will replace Marlin K. Jensen later in 2012, when Jensen is designated an emeritus general authority. To effect a smooth transition, Snow was released from the Presidency of the Seventy on January 20, 2012, in order to begin working immediately with Jensen.
On July 26, 2012, President Barack Obama announced that he had appointed Snow to serve on the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
Snow has an accounting degree from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University and a juris doctorate from Brigham Young University. He has been a deputy county attorney for Washington County, Utah, President and a senior partner in the Snow Nuffer law firm.
Snow's great-great-great grandfather is former church apostle Erastus Snow.
