Summary

Failures don't need to be final, and disappointment doesn't need to be defining. Come along on a wild, hilarious, faith-building ride, and let The Art of Getting It Wrong guide you toward hope for the future and the freedom to love your life exactly where you are. 

Long before his YouTube channel, The Miller Fam, became a viral sensation, Stephen Miller got a ton of things wrong. He knows what it's like to endure countless failed endeavors, make too many rash decisions, and feel deep discouragement when life doesn't go as planned—sometimes all before breakfast. But those experiences taught him a powerful lesson: It's going to be okay.

With the characteristic authenticity, love, and humor Stephen shows in his YouTube videos, The Art of Getting It Wrong offers timeless truths and never-before-told stories of misadventures and out-of-control disappointments that will encourage you to: 

  • See the good at work in your life, even when you make mistakes
  • Look for the laugh in every situation
  • Embrace the truth—whether it's a warm hug or a kick in the teeth
  • Believe in yourself and grow in your sense of self-worth
  • Discover the power of grace, both for others and for yourself

Join Stephen as he shares what it means to turn failures, mishaps, and disappointments into a life of fun and fulfillment—even when it's not what you expected.

Laughed and cried, wished it was longer!

I’ve been following The Miller Fam since pre Covid on YouTube. When I heard Stephen had written a book I knew I’d love it. He’s very funny, super open, and incredibly real. You can identify with him even if you haven’t been through the same experiences. I particularly loved the added conversations with his wife, Amanda in between each chapter. Every YouTube video I’ve watched of theirs I wondered why Stephen looks at Amanda the way he does, now the blissful adoration makes sense. It’s a super chilled book that I listened to in a couple of weeks and was disappointed when it was over. His ability to take on the voice of others was worth listening to the book alone, they’re crazily good.

Refreshing, Kind, Hilarious

This book was everything I always wanted and didn’t know I could have in an audiobook. It was entertaining, enlightening, encouraging, and much more. It really just felt like listening to a friend and mentor tell you stories about his life that make you feel like a better person just by listening. You can hear the joy and life in his voice and I particularly love when the author narrates a book because you can hear the passion and know exactly how they mean for something to come out. I would definitely recommend.

Great Read

God bless you Stephen. This book is spot on. The enemy wants our mistakes and failures keep us incompacitated, unable to move forward in life. You are living proof it does not have to be this way. Thanks for teaching us how to move forward .

PHENOMENAL, 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

I thoroughly enjoyed it, you are a great storyteller. I felt as though I was there witnessing each account first hand, identifying with many of your very human circumstances, feelings, and thought processes, even though I'm an African-American female.
