Joey Feek’s battle with cancer has been difficult, but not without positivity and resilience. Joey + Rory’s ability to cope during this time is truly inspiring. Their incredible faith and dedication to life has allowed them to move forward, even when the future is uncertain.
Joey was diagnosed with cervical cancer in May 2014, leading to multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation. Before this life-changing news, Joey and Rory showed faith and resilience through their songs, which is perhaps what has given them the bravery and courage they’ve shown over the past year and a half.
Joey’s gospel classic, “In The Garden” took on new meaning in the home video recorded below. According to Rory, one of Joey’s favorite activities is tending to her garden.
He wrote about her love of the outdoors in a blogpost:
“As I write this … my wife is in her garden, the baby on a blanket near her. She’s weeding her squash, and broccoli and kale, and the cucumbers that have just poked their heads up out of the soil. But she’s not just tending to her vegetables – she’s tending to her soul.“
The video shows Joey in her element, tending to her garden. Indy sits on a nearby blanket playing and watching her mom. The sweet video is a peaceful look into their beautiful life together.
Watch “In The Garden” below. We continue to keep Joey, Rory, Indy, and their family in our prayers.
