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

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.
