Description

From Erick Erickson, “arguably the most powerful conservative in America today” (The Atlantic), an inspiring book about life’s enduring values, based on a viral essay he wrote for his children after he and his wife both faced grave medical situations.

“A must read.” — RedState

In late 2016, prompted by the news that his wife was battling cancer and his own pulmonary medical scare, Erick Erickson posted a piece to his website, The Resurgent. Styled as a letter to his young children, the piece, titled “If I Should Die Before You Wake,” was a stirring message–and challenge–about how to live a life of purpose and joy. The essay went viral, shared by figures like New York Times columnist and author of The Road to Character, David Brooks. Now, in a time when our country needs healing and a reminder of our values more than ever, Erickson has expanded the project, composing a total of ten letters, featuring a wonderful mix of the practical, inspirational, and spiritual.
