If there ever was a story of love, country living, and family, it could be written about Joey and Rory. The country music duo’s love story is one of faith, family, and friends. If you haven’t done so, you need to bookmark Rory’s blog, This Life I Live.
In the recent blog, Rory depicts the story of his wife, Joey, going for a doctor visit after the visit of their beautiful baby, Indiana Boon Feek, and finding out that she has cervical cancer. She had surgery and thankfully the doctors revealed that she will not have to have chemotherapy or radiation for the cervical cancer.
“Yes, it has been quite a year for us so far,” wrote Rory. “In the past six months, God has taken us places we never dreamed we would go. It’s been terrifying and thrilling all at the same time. We never know what tomorrow will bring . . . none of us do. But what an incredible journey life is. We are just going to continue to trust Him and hold to each other and . . . pedal, pedal!”
Something that is amazing in this journey that Joey + Rory have shared with readers, they have not once asked for help financially. They have asked simply for prayer. I always believe in “pay it forward” and I know that medical costs can get high, especially when you are a musician. I encourage you to check out Joey + Rory website and their merchandise store. Purchase their music, perhaps buy their dvd of their wonderful tv show, read delicious recipes out of Joey’s cookbook, and more. Feel free to take a trip down to Marcy Jo’s, their restaurant in Pottsville, TN, for some home cooking.
Be sure to subscribe to Rory’s blog, This Life I Live, and receive updates. The photos & stories they share are just beautiful and showcase the simple things in life we sometimes take for granted.
