Publisher's Summary

The story she said he was born to write.

Her story. His story. The love story of Joey and Rory.

By inviting so many into the final months of Joey's life as she battled cancer, Joey and Rory Feek captured hearts around the world with how they handled the diagnosis; the inspiring, simple way they chose to live; and how they loved each other every step of the way. But there is far more to the story.

"My life is very ordinary," says Rory. "On the surface it is not very special. If you looked at it day to day, it wouldn't seem like much. But when you look at it in a bigger context - as part of a larger story - you start to see the magic that is on the pages of the book that is my life. And the more you look, the more you see. Or at least I do."

In this vulnerable book, he takes us for the first time into his own challenging life story and what it was like growing up in rural America with little money and even less family stability.

This is the story of a man searching for meaning and security in a world that offered neither. And it's the story of a man who finally gives it all to a power higher than himself and soon meets a young woman who will change his heart forever.

In This Life I Live, Rory Feek helps us to connect more fully not only to his and Joey's story but also to our own journeys. He shows what can happen when we are fully open in life's key moments, whether meeting our life companion or tackling an unexpected tragedy. He also gives never-before-revealed details on their life together and what he calls "the long good-bye" - the blessing of being able to know that life is going to end and taking advantage of it. Rory shows how we are all actually there already and how we can learn to live that way every day.

A gifted man from nowhere and everywhere in search of something to believe in. A young woman from the Midwest with an angelic voice and deep roots that just needed a place to be planted. This is their story. Two hearts that found each other and touched millions of other hearts along the way.

    "This Life I Live"

    I thought I KNEW about Rory and Joey's life, after all, I am one of their biggest fans! But Rory opened up so much, about his girls mother (which I had never heard) and about his past, which knowing him NOW seems so unlike the man I know him to be.
    I love him for so many reasons, one being how he and Joey really loved each other. Through good times and bad, they had the glue called faith.
    I can't wait for everyone to read this amazing book! If your heart isn't stirred, you don't have one!

    Rory, God is still writing your chapters. I cannot wait to see how He finishes the book of your life!
    I love you, as a sister in the faith. I can't wait for us to be with Joey on those streets in heaven.
    Grace to you. Always, and then some...Dee Bradley

    P. S. I was there at the taping of "Hymns". So proud I saw a Grammy in the making.

    "Transforming and captivating"

    Perhaps the most captivating, true-life story I have ever read!! The focus Is on the transforming power of love from God, as it impacts us individually, and spills over onto our relationships with others, be they loved ones or strangers. Hearing the story read by author, Rory Feek, was especially inspiring. I have been touched and blessed by both Joey + Rory.

    "Beautiful, touching story"

    Joey Feek was an incredible woman and Rory Feek an incredible husband and partner! His story was absolutely inspirational as was Joey's influence on Rory! I loved this book! I loved their music! This book made me feel like I knew them personally. I listen to Joey's music and Rory's everyday while driving my kids to school! Indiana is lucky to have been born to such wonderful parents. I believe Joey will forever have an influence on Indy's life as she will in Rory's! God Bless them all.

    "Beautifully written, heart wrenching and soulful to the bone"

    Knowing the narrator is the author himself adds a dimension to this book that cannot be matched.
    Powerful and beautiful love story of how faith and hope in the one true God, El Emunah, can transform lives.

    "Wow-oh-wow!"

    I don't read much but I took an interest in Joey + Rory over a year ago when I first heard about them. The more I found out about them the more I wanted to learn. What an incredible story!!

    Story
    "Feek is a gifted storyteller with such an inspiring story to tell."

    This is a beautifully written memoir of a life full of challenges, victories, and heartbreaks. (It is surely NOT a self-indulgent puff piece like we often see with celebrity memoirs.) Rory Feek tells the tale of his life, loves, and losses with candor and honesty... warts and all. There is something here for everyone. This book is simultaneously inspiring and crushing, and I highly recommend this book.
