Jennifer (Warren) Miller had no idea that the journal she began on
her dining room table might someday become a published book.
The books cover, designed by Miller, is a cross surrounded by
the pictures of their nieces and nephews.
The Millers have been together for 16 and one-half years and married
for 13. Weve been trying for 11 years, Miller smiled.
This, Miller said motioning at the book, is a story
of love and encouragement.
Asked if her husband Frank Todd ever hesitated about her writing and
publishing the book, Miller shook her head no. But its hard
for others to relate. There are so many people out there with problems.
This is just how weve handled it, gotten through it.
Miller began the book as a daily journal, written in long hand on her
living room couch and at her dining room table. I started out
writing it by hand and then moved to the computer as it grew,
During the struggle and disappointment, the Millers have also had to
deal with the changes life throws at anyone.
Millers eyes fill with tears with the thought of her mothers
death. Yeah, that hurts, but its OK; because she and
my dad (Ralph Warren) have instilled enough Christian heritage in my
life, that I can still pass that on to my children. I cant dwell
on the fact that shes not here. I have to focus on what she left
My dads remarried; shes a wonderful woman and shell be a really good grandmother. Weve lost grandparents, my mother, his sister. All of them people that would have enjoyed our children. You, we, want specific people in our lives, to share our joy. Asked what she would leave to any reader or another couple agonizing over being childless, Miller said: Trust God or be miserable.
