In 2003, Christian writer, Donald Miller, published "Blue Like Jazz," which went on to become a New York Times bestseller. In the book, he explored the meaning of Christian spirituality and tried to explain how to find it in modern life.

The publication in 2006 of "To Own a Dragon" put the spotlight on his growing up in a fatherless home. Miller felt that mentoring from a local Christian church had helped him steer clear of trouble.

The feedback from the book led to The Mentoring Project which now funds Christian churches across the United States in helping kids from fatherless homes.

2. "Most of us are waiting. We're waiting for something interesting to happen. And I think we're going to wait forever if we don't do something more interesting with our lives."

3. "Years ago I realized the only way to change the world was to make plans and execute them. And I really wanted to change the world. So I put together a team that I love and we wake up every day and take action."
