I absolutely LOVED this book.
This Life I Live was written by Rory Feel, husband of Joey. When his wife began battling cancer, he started a Blog, and invited people into their personal lives. However, this book isn't much about her death. It is about his life, and her life, and their life together.
I actually was hesitant about reading this book because I didn't want to just read a book about death. I didn't need sad stuff. And I didn't want to cry a lot. But, like many of you, I have an interest in this family, and wanted to find out more.
This book was FANTASTIC! And here is why it was so fantastic. The vast majority of the book is Rory sharing how he came to find the Lord. It discusses the sin in his life. And the forgiveness. And what lead him to finally call Jesus Christ his savior.
This isn't just a "generic" faith. It is a deep and powerful faith. And a deep and powerful love. And I just absolutely loved the voice that Rory wrote with.
I recommend this whole-heartedly. You will NOT be disappointed. And like me, I think you'll be inspired and encouraged -- not just sad.
