Joey Feek's Gift

Joey+Rory fans will be forever grateful for the music they made together. Perhaps their most memorable pice of music is to be found on the video below, When I'm Gone.

Joey left behind her husband, Rory, and young daughter, Indiana,  on March 4 when she died of cervical cancer at the age of 40. 

Incredible song and video.

The song and video were made in 2012. It is hard to watch knowing their story, but all the more beautiful as it touches on the concept of God's grace to endure without even saying it.

I have to say, this very touching video made me think about my wonderful wife and when the time comes one of us leaves this earth. 

On the main page of their website the day 
after father and daughter returned from the funeral.

The legacy Joey leaves is certain to touch those who knew them either personally or through their music, and this video is their gift to us. The story she tells, however, is God's: Whoever would believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who willingly gave up his life by dying on the cross but then being rose back to life- whoever they are, regardless of how broken and sinful their life has been- will be given the gift of eternal life when this one ends. The ultimate gift that only God could give for the world He loved and created. Is this your gift to receive today?

Cancer couldn't kill their love... or their faith.

Their story is here. And for them, it's only the beginning of a new chapter for all of them. It's at once inspiring, heartbreaking, and full of hope. The hope for this life and the next that believers in Jesus Christ can call their own.
