August 16, 2020 ~ 9:00-11:00 am

Wear your pajamas or sweats–this is a “come as you are” virtual event (via Zoom)! Enjoy your favorite breakfast dish comfy on your sofa as Amanda LaCamera, Adventist WholeHealth, demonstrates a yummy and healthy breakfast recipe. Then be inspired and challenged by Gianna Snell as she shares her story of how God turns pain into purpose.

Gianna Snell is a self-proclaimed “southern girl.” A daughter of a pastor, she was born in Selma, AL and grew up in Nashville, TN. She attended Oakwood University for two years then transferred to Andrews University where she graduated with dual degrees in Photographic Imaging and Communication.

In 2003, she married the love of her life, Pastor Debleaire Snell. They have been married for 17 years and currently live in Huntsville, AL, where he pastors the First Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Gianna is the founder of Psalm 113:9 Ministries, a support group that seeks to encourage women who are struggling with infertility, miscarriage and pregnancy loss. She seeks to encourage others with a promise God gave her, that God can settle barren women in their homes as happy mothers of children. (Psalm 113:9) She is a witness because they lost four babies, but God restored! And they are now grateful parents to three miracle children, Jadon (10), Brooke (7) and Braydon (5). In 2020, this ministry was relaunched as They That Wait Ministries, which aims to help people who are waiting on God, wait well and with joy.

She is a published writer, a budding speaker, and an accomplished portrait artist. She owns her own company, Gianna Snell Photography, and loves capturing the genuine connections and expressions of her clients.
