Paige Omartian is a speaker and recording artist whose battle with cancer as a child led her on a remarkable journey inspiring others to grasp the preciousness of life and live out their purpose.

Paige was interviewed on the Today Show and was the speaker and TV host for the ministry iShine. She released her debut rock album, Wake Up, in 2009.
"Paige's book is a must-read. It is a clarion call to live the life God calls us to live in a world where so many are either bored or simply going through the motions. My prayer is that this book will find its way into the hands of young people who will be inspired to serve and live authentic lives. We serve an amazing God and I am thankful to Paige for her willingness to be used by Him to help inspire others and, in the process, help to heal a hurting world." -David Williams, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish Foundation "I wish I'd read this book when I was younger. No doubt it would have saved me many painful lessons! Paige inspires and enlightens us through this book to find the source of our identity and ignite a real, relevant, and radical sense of purpose. The practical applications throughout the book will help you walk out your own story and clearly see through the lies the world tells us about ourselves. I could not recommend this book enough-everyone needs to hear this miraculous story and should expect a real life change through it." -Robert Beeson, President and CCO, BEMA Media, founder of Essential Records "This book is an amazing testimony of how God can bring blessing out of tragedy. Paige's story will not only leave you shaken, but it will motivate you to step out and live differently. Her story has the potential to wake up an entire generation for the glory of God. Read on and become that generation." -Mike Blackaby, speaker and coauthor of When Worlds Collide "Many books inspired me, but only a few provided the rough shake needed for radical life transformation. This was one of the few. Paige's passionate plea to her generation is heart-wrenching, humorous, uncomfortable, and at its heart, unavoidably convicting. When I reluctantly finished, I was no longer at the same place spiritually as I when I began. Life is much too short to spend sleepwalking; we need a wakeup call-and with this essential book, Paige has given us one." -Daniel Blackaby, speaker and coauthor of When Worlds Collide "All of us have stories to tell, but few of us recognize their power. In Wake Up, Generation, Paige Omartian delivers a fresh and fervent challenge to a generation rendered immobile by apathy. She empowers us all to rise up and join the greatest Story ever told." -Constance Rhodes, founder and CEO of FINDINGbalance, author of The Art of Being: Reflections on the Beauty and Risk of Embracing Who We Are "We live in a time in which there are so many things to keep us occupied and entertained, and yet we are still falling asleep, missing the very work we have been called to do. Paige speaks to us in a way that catches our attention and 'wakes us and shakes us,' up and out. This is not a how-to book but it is a have-done book. Her story of resilience propels even the sleepiest to wake up." -Jamie Grace, winner of the 2012 Dove Award for New Artist of the Year
