As 85-year-old President Lorenzo Snow struggles to vanquish the two million dollar indebtedness of the Mormon church in 1899, he feels inspired to journey from Salt Lake City by train and carriage to St. George in southern Utah. Along the way he witnesses the effects of severe drought. The next day, in the St. George Tabernacle, he receives inspiration that by paying tithing, the “windows of heaven” will open, pouring out blessings. He promises the people that they can plant crops and rain will come, then continues to preach tithing as he returns home where he awaits favorable weather reports from St. George.

Classic and to the point of the life of Lorenzo Snow. This film is not as good as Mountain of the Lord and you kind of want it to go longer, but the message of the life that Snow lived is profound. This film is perfect to share with family and friends when you are looking to have a Family Home Evening on prophets. It is needed to be seen, but many haven’t seen this one.
The film is quite old and therefore, it is going to have several corny scenes. However, you have to remember that it is not what you want to be entertained 100%, but rather if you felt the spirit or not. This is one of those movies where the spirit is strong. You are going to be happy that you saw this film regardless if it is cheesy or not.
