Summary
  • "Joey and Rory Feek were enjoying a steadily growing fan base in country music when Joey was diagnosed with a rapidly spreading cancer. By inviting so many into the final months of Joey's life as she battled cancer, they captured hearts around the world. In this vulnerable book, Rory takes us into his own challenging life story"--
  • “My life is very ordinary,” says Rory. “On the surface, it is not very special if you look 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.” 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.
