Pam, Jami, Zach and I work all year on what songs make the final cut for our annual Miller Mix. The rule is simple: it needs to be either a new song, or a song that was new to us. You are gonna love the 2019 mix! Last year’s 2018 mix started out with a […]
Letters to Jami and Zach from Dad
Parents, don’t come down too hard on your children or you’ll crush their spirits.
Each year I love to sit down with the kids and make our mix of favorite songs. The rules are simple: in order to make the mix the song has to be either new (came out in 2018) or just new to us as a family. We have to pick from songs that we liked […]
Dear Jami and Zach, Tomorrow night Mom and Dad are taking you to Washington DC for your very first rock concert… and it’s U2! The new album, Songs of Experience is so full of hope and both of you know every song by heart, how could I not take you? To make sure that your […]
Dear Jami, I am so proud of what you did this year when you painted your school. You are so talented! So creative! You were patient with yourself and you took your time to make a wonderful painting. The end result is a wonderful painting and a beautiful story.
I am proud of you everyday, but on this day, I was extra proud. You are amazing! Below is the story of what you did when you painted Hayshire Elementary School. I love you, Dad
2017 was a crazy year. Donald Trump became President and everyone seems angry, the wars in Syria continued, hurricanes destroyed Puerto Rico… and our home in 2017 had it’s joys and a lot of quiet suffering. In many ways it was a really hard year for us too. But our family, our core unit of Jesus, […]
Dear Jami and Zach, Let me tell you a mystery I’ll never fully understand. It’s an important mystery. We need Truth Like it or not, we are all looking for Truth. I believe we all have a longing to know what is True in this life and what isn’t. I think every honest person has […]
Being a parent is the easiest thing to get into and the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do.

Dear Jami and Zach,
As I write this, Jami, you are 4 years old, and your 5th birthday is 16 days away. Zach is 2 and your birthday is right around the corner. Last night you (Jami) woke up and puked all over your bed, floor and bathroom. The night before that you slept next to our bed on the floor with the “golden blanket”. The night before that we had a dance party with the whole Jones family in our living room.
Time goes by so fast and I want to capture what I can in words.
I want to write down advice I’m not sure you will take. I want tell you what I’m thinking and what I’m worried about. I want to tell you how I see the world. I want to point you to Jesus.
My greatest desire is that someday both of you will grow into your own walk with God. I want it to be yours, not mine.
I have so much I want to share with you and I hope someday you and I can look back at these words and rejoice at the life God has given us.
I love you more than you will ever know,
