Once Upon A Farm by Rory Feek

Posted by Leah

Book Description:

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

A raw and vulnerable look deeper into Rory’s heart, Once Upon a Farm 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 Rory 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.”

My Thoughts:

This book is a heartfelt story written about Rory and Joey and their relationship. The heartache that Rory felt after Joey's passing. Now he is raising their four-year-old daughter Indiana. I will tell you this with the stories you will read in this book will make you laugh, you will be excited, cheer, you'll cry so make sure you have that tissue, well, the box of tissues nearby. You will need them. I was lead to this one because I do know Rory and Joey's story so when I saw this I had to read it. This will remain in my library of books and will be passed around to others to read as well. I appreciated Rory's unflinching honesty and willingness to share his life in these pages. This is a book I will pick up again and read. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will pick up a copy for yourself. 

Grace & Peace,
