To Joey, With Love Movie Review - Includes a GIVEAWAY

They believed God would give them a great story … and He did.
Husband-and-wife singing duo Joey+Rory wanted more to life … so they chose less. In preparation for the birth of their child, the couple simplified their lives by putting their music career aside and staying at home, planting roots deep in the soil of their small farm, and the community they loved.

Experience the incredible true story of Joey and Rory Feek in the poignant new film TO JOEY, WITH LOVE. Intimately filmed by the couple over two and a half years, the movie documents the stirring journey of the 2010 Academy of Country Music Top New Vocal Duo.
TO JOEY, WITH LOVE takes moviegoers from the birth of their daughter Indiana, born with Down Syndrome, through Joey’s struggle with and ultimate surrender to cancer—all amidst their never-ending hope in something far greater. God gave Joey+Rory a love story for the ages, one that is sure to inspire hope and faith in all who experience it.

My Thoughts:
I can honestly say, I don't really think I had heard of Joey and Rory before watching this movie. It was funny, because I would be telling people about it, and they are like, yeah, I followed that story. Me, I don't watch much TV so, I somehow I missed it. I feel honored to have had the privilege of watching this beautiful film.
It's a compelling, moving story of a couple in love, with a full life, who is dealt a number of challenging circumstances, which they use to glorify God. It is filmed somewhat like a documentary, but still grips your heart and captures your attention. 
This story will tug at your emotions (so grab some tissues in advance) and motivate you to appreciate the simple things in life, take nothing for granted, and enjoy time with family, friends, and community. Life is short and none of us are guaranteed another day or an easy journey. It will make you want to love deeply, hold things lightly, and hang on to faith and hope. The Feeks let God write their story and have made a lasting legacy for all to see.
I received a preview opportunity of this movie from icon media group to review. All opinions are my own.

  4. I followed them! WE saw them when they were on the country version of the voice. I love their hymn album and their Christmas song is one of my favorites. I love how they trusted the Lord even when they knew she was dying. When she was sick, she sang "It is well with my soul". I don't know if I could do that. Have young kids, know that I am dying and trust the Lord that he will look out for them. I hope I would. Their story is inspirational. I would love to win the DVD. I have been wanting to see it for ages. Thanks for the chance to enter :) Sandy
