Ellen Gould White, Birth November 26, 1827 – Death July 16, 1915. Ellen G. White is one of the persons God used to establish His church—the
Seventh-day Adventist church—to confirm and clarify its message. Although raised as a Methodist, Ellen Harmon was influenced by the
“advent” movement of New England in the 1840s. Led by William Miller, a Baptist preacher, adventists believed that Jesus would return
to earth in either 1843 or 1844 (some pinned it down to 22 October 1844). In 1846 Harmon married a minister, James White, and together
they devoted themselves to preaching religious principles based on visions from God. White was a prolific writer and prophet of God
to the S.D.A. church. Her book Steps to Christ has sold over 20 million copies worldwide.
