This Life I Live

Joey and Rory Feek were enjoying a steadily growing fan base in country music when Joey was diagnosed unexpectedly with a rapidly spreading cancer. This vibrant and beautiful young woman would soon be on a unique journey for which no one is ever fully prepared. Her husband, Rory, and children, Heidi, Hopie, and Indiana, were beside her each step of the way. Rory, a prolific songwriter, entrepreneur, farmer, and overall tender man, has seen God bless his life in countless unexpected ways and had started a blog, thislifeilive.com, not really knowing its purpose other than he needed to write. That purpose soon became clearer when Joey’s cancer battle hit.

By inviting so many into the final months of Joey’s life, this astounding couple captured the hearts of millions with their powerful love story, the manner in which they were handling the diagnosis, and the inspiring simple way they had chosen to live their lives.

In this vulnerable book, Rory takes us into his own challenging life story and shows what can happen when God brings both his presence and the right companion into our lives. He also gives never-before-revealed details on what he calls “the long goodbye,” the blessing of being able to know that life is going to end and taking advantage of it. Feek shows how we all are actually there already and how we can learn to live that way every day. He then goes into detail toward the end of the book on what it’s like to try to move on with your life once you’ve “had it all.”

Once Upon a Farm

Now raising their 4-year old daughter, Indiana, alone, after Joey’s passing, Rory Feek digs deeper into the soil of his life and the unusual choices he and his wife Joey made together, and the ones he’s making now to lead his family into the future. 

When Rory Feek and his older daughters moved into a run-down farmhouse almost twenty years ago, he had no idea of the almost fairy-tale love story that was going to unfold on that small piece of Tennessee land. … and the lessons he and his family would learn along the way. 

Now, two years after his wife Joey’s passing... as Rory takes their four-year-old daughter Indiana’s hand and walks forward into an unknown future, he takes the readers on his incredible journey from heartbreak to hope and ultimately, the kind of healing that only comes through faith. 

A raw, and vulnerable look deeper into Rory’s heart, this book is filled with powerful stories of love, life and hope and the insights that one extraordinary, ordinary man in bib overalls has gleamed along the way. 

As opposed to homesteading, this is instead a book on lifesteading, as Feek learns to cultivate faith, love, and fatherhood on a small farm, while doing everything at times but farming. With frequent stories of his and Joey’s years together, and how those guide his life today, Rory unpacks just what it means to be open to new experiences.

“This isn’t a ‘how to’ book, it’s more of a ‘how we’ or more accurately “how He” (God) planted us on a few acres of land and grew something bigger than Joey or I could have ever imagined.”
