Donald Miller grew up in Houston, Texas, where he left at the age of twenty-one to cross the country with a friend in a Volkswagen van. The stuff of that trip would later become his first book, Through Painted Deserts. A couple years after releasing Through Painted Deserts, Don released Blue Like Jazz, a spiritual memoir about finding Christian faith in a post-Christian culture. Blue would slowly become a bestseller, and spend more than forty-weeks on the New York Times Bestsellers List. Don's next book was Searching for God Knows What, followed by To Own a Dragon, a book he wrote about growing up without a father. To Own a Dragon also served as the motivation to start The Belmont Foundation, a not-for-profit equipping local churches to start mentoring programs.
