Scripture Frames for Life
Steven Snook pt 1
Steven Snook’s first memories are of life were in Virginia foster care, before being taken to his then-new home in Danville, Illinois. There, he grew up in extreme poverty over the course of his upbringing. By the age of 15, he was involved with drugs. After turning 19, he was transporting marijuana from South Texas into Central Illinois. And by 26, he was arrested by the DEA for smuggling cocaine and sentenced to 22 years in the federal prison system. Over the course of that time, he was transferred to eight different federal facilities across states like Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia. That included time in solitary confinement, serving an entire year in solitary during one period.
For most people, that would sound like a harsh punishment. But Steven says, that for him, it turned into an opportunity.
Two years prior to Snook’s release, he recounts a series of vivid dreams. In them, he says, God showed him frames with rotating images of scripture inside, hanging on the walls of homes. I’ll let him share with us now, “the rest of the story” about what has become, “Rapha Frames.”
Help me welcome to the program, Steven Snook. Steven, thank you for taking the time to join us today. I’ve been excited about having this interview with you since you first reached out to me. Welcome to the program.
First question I always start with is this. Other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Steven Snook?”
Let’s jump back to the beginning. Raised the first part of your life in an orphanage. Then you were moved to Illinois. Were you adopted or foster cared out to a family? How did you end up on Illinois?
What led you to the street life with drugs, etc.?
Then that progressed into trafficking?
Share with us what your life was like in the prison system… since you spent so much time in solitary, I take there were some issues?
What did the other inmates around you think about these changes in you?
Did your family ever attend church growing up? Did you have any exposure this before?
You became a “go to guy” if someone had questions about Faith and Jesus or needed prayer, right?
Tell us about the dreams…
Folks, Steven is using his “God given talents” to further his “God given Dream.” Amen! You have dream and talents inside of you that are unique to YOU – but will be able to make an impact in this world that nobody else can make. Only you.
