Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best-seller

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 not only to connect more fully 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 when 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 goodbye,” 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.

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.

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.

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!!

Touching and Lovingly Told.

This is such a sweet tale of Love and Loss. I have to tell you that I cried before the sad part even started because I was very aware of their story. I love the way Rory speaks from his heart and bares his soul. Sure, he skims through some parts that I am sure were painful to even touch upon, but he does a wonderful job of telling their story. I actually enjoyed the story of his childhood and life before Joey as much as anything else in the book. After all this is his story from his hearts perspective and his, is a true story of redemption, love, finding his true self in his faith, and of course loss. Do yourself a favor listen to the book or read, then go get their CD. Joey was one of the most heart felt great female singers that we have had in Nashville for a long time, she will be missed tremendously.
