Donna Snow


Donna is a well-known LWML speaker and writer.  She has led the Bible study at National LWML conventions and has led two previous retreats in New England, most recently in 2022. With her retirement, she is now able to focus on her writing, teaching, and speaking through her Artesian Ministries, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization committed to biblical literacy and knowing Jesus through His Word.


The life story of Joseph is one of the most beloved and chronicled in the Bible. It’s a story of broken dreams and impossible circumstances, of family conflict and unfair treatment. From a favorite son to a slave and a prisoner who became prime minister of Egypt, Joseph’s story demonstrates the power and necessity of letting God’s love and forgiveness lead. Through this study, we come away recognizing our own circumstances in Joseph’s story, inspired to place our trust in God. (This study focuses on Genesis 37-50.)
