Before You Wake: Life Lessons from a Father to His Children

Publisher: Hachette Books • October 3, 2017 • 224 pages

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.

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.
