About Courage to Be You by Gail Miller
Gail Miller might seem as though she has it easy—now. But she has experienced challenges in nearly every aspect of her life: financial struggles, family trials, and personal loss. Through it all, she has had courage to move forward and remain grounded in her faith.
In Courage to Be You, Gail encourages readers to find their own path—with the help of the Lord. Her candid stories and personal insights about faith, hard work, grief, and many more topics are both fascinating and inspiring.
“I hope as you read about my journey,” she writes, “you will recognize a gem or two of truth that may be useful in your journey. Hopefully, you’ll recognize you’re not alone in a confusing and complicated world.”
Reading this book is like sitting down with a good friend and visiting about the things that matter most. It will fill you with courage and determination to be the best “you” possible.
“I’ve long admired the Miller family and always wondered whether their matriarch, Gail, was the secret ingredient behind their myriad accomplishments. After reading Courage to Be You, the wondering is over. What a strong, humble, loving leader, wife and mother! Her courageous story – and her life – are an inspiration the world needs.”
—John Bytheway, Bestselling Author, Speaker and Educator

—Michael McLean, Singer, songwriter, creator of The Forgotten Carols
“Courage to Be You surprised me: I had not expected to read so revealing and genuine an account from someone so famous. Gail opens up her life for us—and that of her iconic husband Larry. We find trials and heartache we may not have expected from people so successful, and we witness enduring images of the lessons for a meaningful life.”
I loved reading every bit of this. What a refreshing read! She shares incredible experiences and lessons with compelling honesty, openness, humor and compassion. I didn’t want it to end, I wanted more!

“I was drawn into Courage to be You after the first few sentences. I immediately wanted to know more about Gail and what she has learned. By the time I finished the book, I felt like she was a friend. She shares insights in a way that feels like we had gone to lunch and talked over a bowl of soup and a salad with extra dressing. “

I love it when I find a well written book about a really interesting person. Courage to Be You by Gail Miller is one of those.
Gail Miller is kind of a big name in the state where I live. I have enjoyed watching from afar all of the things she has done for the state in general and for individuals as well. I actually got to go to an event where she sat down and talked a bit about her life. She was honest, she was kind. She was real. I loved that!
Her book is just like she is. There is honesty. There is sadness with her family story. Honestly, her husband Larry was the more well known of the two. But reading her book made me love her so much. I loved her charity, her kindness to others. The way she talks about the lessons she’s learned throughout her life is just awesome. The lessons are all things we need to know. How to be friends with everyone, how to make family the most important thing, how to have the courage to just be you.
This book is one that everyone should take the time to read. You won’t regret it!
I bought this book. All opinions are my own.
