Foreword

An Explanation the Author Would Like to Have You Read

Although he has spent his working lifetime involved in the custody of the Ellen G. White writings, the author has been amazed at the frequency and number of visions given to Ellen White during the last decade of her life. What has not amazed him, however, is the substantial influence these visions exerted as the counsels given were heeded and the reproofs were received and integrated into the thinking and actions of church members and leaders.

The Early Elmshaven Years, covering the period between late 1900 and mid-1905, quite naturally forms the introduction to this volume, which is devoted to the last decade of the fruitful life of the messenger of the Lord. The same words of appreciation for competent assistance and the same explanations could be given here, but I will do no more than to ask the reader to review again the author’s aims and objectives that have motivated him during the year this volume was being prepared:

1. To write for the average reader, but in such detail and with such documentation as will meet the expectations of the scholar.

2. To leave the reader with the feeling that he or she is acquainted with Ellen White as a very human person.

3. To portray accurately the life and work of Ellen White as the Lord’s messenger in the Seventh-day Adventist Church, not by a slavish chronicle of each day of her active ministry, but to select from her experience events and happenings that illustrate her lifework and make a contribution to the cause.

4. As far as possible, to keep these events in a year-by-year
