Miller lives with his wife Elizabeth and dog in Nashville where he runs his companies and continues to write. Newly married in 2013, Miller has made some memorable quotes about family.

1. In a PBS interview, Miller stressed the importance of a strong male role model. "So, without a positive male role model in your life, it is extremely difficult to become a man who benefits his family and benefits society."

2. "My mom was a hero. She's heroic to me."

3. "I think if you can tackle fatherlessness, then you can tackle overpopulation in prison, you can tackle teen drug use. If the abortion issue is important to me, this is how you tackle that issue. Across the board, it covers a lot of this stuff."

4. "For a rock-solid marriage, we would need a willingness to get below the issues to the real issues. To be truly vulnerable with each other."

5. "Parents who sacrifice impressing their children in order to bond with them on a human-to-human level create a deeper connection."

6. "Children who grow up in environments where it's okay to be human feel less pressure in life and less of a reason to hide from their families and the world around them."

7. "Material wealth doesn't bring happiness to a family," writes Miller in his book "Through Painted Deserts: Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road." He adds, "If you can't buy a nice car or anything for your family don't worry about it. Just go into your kid's room and kiss them on the forehead, okay, 'cause there is all kinds of beauty and it doesn't have anything to do with having stuff."

8. "Healthy and high-functioning people often have parents who do not hide their flaws, especially from their own children."
