(19) Tori Miller Duckworth: Trusting God and Pressing Forward

The summer of 2009 I had the opportunity to spend every hour of every day with Tori Miller (Duckworth). We both were serving as Missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in a small city called Kirtland located outside of Cleveland Ohio.  Spending that much time with a person you really get to see their character, which is why I can honestly say she is one of the most genuine gals I know. I wanted to interview Tori to get a greater perspective on miscarriage and the struggles and emotions that surround it. The interview took a different turn at first as we talked about the health problems she developed on the mission and the difficulty she had coming home early because of her health.  She discusses the judgment she felt but also the best way to help someone that comes home early from a LDS Mission. As we transition to talking about her miscarriage I had no clue all that she had gone through over the past couple of years. I am so grateful that Tori was willing to share her story and I hope that this interview can help those struggling with the issues that she discussed.
