When Lucy was a little girl the neighborhood doctor caller her father, William Miller, a "monomaniac." This sounded like a strange disease, but it actually means a person who can talk about only one thing. With William Miller, that one thing was the second coming of Jesus. Lucy and her brothers and sister were caought up in the message, believing it and sharing it in their community. As they impatiently waited for the day when Christ would come, their great hope helped them bear bravely the taunts of unbelieving neighbors. When her much-loved little sister died, Lucy was comforted by the thought that Jesus would waken the child soon. Then, as a teen-ager, she, with thousands of others, faced bitter disappointment when the sun rose on October 23, 1844, and Jesus hadn't come to take them home.
