Quick Overview

The first Seventh-day Adventist missionaries arrived in Australia in 1885. Six years later, Ellen White-one of the church’s founders-arrived in this distant land. Then aged 64, she was unsure of this calling and expected to stay no more than two years.

Ellen White’s time in Australia and New Zealand grew to nine years and represents her most mature and pioneering work. Her leadership saw the church grow significantly with new churches planted in many cities and towns, the establishment of what became Avondale College and Sanitarium Health Food Company, and publication of The Desire of Ages.

But these stories--many previously unpublished--also highlight Ellen White’s personal ministry close to her adopted home at “Sunnyside”, establishing a country home with a large household, supporting new church members and serving people in her local community.

“While the leadership Ellen White gave the church in Australia was impressive, her attempt to emulate the loving actions of Jesus in her own life are as much a part of Stories from Sunnyside. It is no wonder that her neighbours, including those not of Ellen White’s religious faith, loved and respected her; likewise, those who knew Ellen White best and worked with her most closely during the years she lived half-way around the world from her home country. Getting to know more of the real Ellen White—who she was and what she was like on a daily basis—will enrich your reading of her writings.” – Elder Jim Nix, Director, Ellen G. White Estate, Silver Spring, Maryland, United States

Must read book

As a layman since I was about 12 or 13 years old I have been an avid student of the life and work of Ellen White( for 47 years or so) and this book brings a new depth, as well as new behind the scenes insights, based on extant letters and manuscripts, of Ellen White and her family, household helpers and friends. Several stories and details I have not yet encountered are written in such a captivating style. It's a great read and reveals fresh new material and in several cases expands some well known stories about life at Sunnyside which makes them even more rich. This book most certainly is a confidence builder in God's hand and guidance in Ellen White's life as God's messenger, loving mother, exemplary neighbor and friend during her "Australasian Years" life and ministry. A million thanks to Marian de Berg for her service at the branch office of the White Estate as well and for taking from her years of service and the knowledge gained there and sharing with the world "Stories from Sunnyside".
