On September 25, 1997, Paul Harvey, the popular radio personality, announced on his nationally syndicated program:
“Women have been honored on American postage stamps for more than 100 years, starting with one woman who was not an American, Queen Isabella, in 1893. Since then, 86 women have been honored, ranging from Martha Washington to Marilyn Monroe. Also many women authors like Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickenson, Willa Cather, and Rachel Carson. But I can name an American woman author who has never been honored thus, though her writings have been translated into 148 languages. More than Marx or Tolstoy, more than Agatha Christie, more than William Shakespeare. Only now is the world coming to appreciate her recommended prescription for optimum spiritual and physical health."
During these few minutes, millions of Americans who had never before heard of Ellen White had been introduced to the historic author and speaker.
Paul Harvey concluded, "Ellen White: You don’t know her? Get to know her!” The purpose of this website is to help you do just that — to introduce you to the life, ministry, and writings of Ellen White, a remarkable woman whom too few people have even heard about.
We believe that when you’ve finished your journey, you’ll be thrilled that you finally met this special woman you should “get to know.”
