Ellen G. White

The module “Ellen White: The Journey of Faith” explores the turbulent torrents of Ellen White’s childhood years. During these important developmental stages of her life unforeseen circumstances changed the direction of her childhood dreams. The impact of this dramatic change left a lifelong imprint on her emotions. In 1884, Ellen White, now 57, visited the places of her childhood years. In her travel notes, she wrote. “While in Portland I visited the places of special interest in connection with my early years, among them the spot where I met with the accident that has made me a life-long invalid.” This misfortune “so hard to bear” commenced a new phase in her childhood experience, a journey towards an implicit trust and confidence in God. The individual sections of this module aim to stimulate reflective thinking about faith and its application to spiritual life in childhood years. —Living faith in the Redeemer will smooth the sea of life, and will deliver us from danger in the way that He knows to be best. (DA 336)

“A Brief Journey Through Sunnyside” takes the reader through a memory lane of Ellen White’s place of residence in Australia. The photographs and stories recapture her life and the legacy she left in the little village of Cooranbong, home of Avondale College.
