What is it like to have a prophetess for a grandmother? Ella M. Robinson knew. Her grandmother was Ellen G. White. In stories of my grandmother Mrs. Robinson tells what Ellen White was like as a grandmother and real person. Although Goddard shows Mrs. White as his messenger to the Seventh-day Adventist church and given her many great responsibilities, she still found time to be the kind of grandmother any girl would dream of. Mrs. White knew when a tired little girl would enjoy an apple or peppermint or help in cutting out a picture from a magazine.

Mrs. Robinson also relates interesting experiences from Ellen White's life. She tells how God shows Ellen as a young girl to be his profit and the many struggles with poverty and sickness she had to go through.

When the Seventh-day Adventist church first started, the United States was a land of pioneers. There were no fast airplanes or white interstate highways to travel on. Mr. and Mrs. White Road open buddies, on trains that often wrecked, and on small boats that storms would toss about. They had many exciting adventures as they carried messages from God from place to place. Later Mrs. White journeyed to Europe and Australia. Wherever she went she was a friend to boys and girls and adults alike.
