While visiting Kansas for Christmas back home, my mom introduced me to Joey + Rory. I was hesitant at first, as I’m typically not the biggest country fan, but decided I would watch their new movie with her. (See the trailer here.)
It’s such a beautiful story, though definitely heart wrenching; but inspiring as ever. By the end I was ready to give up the city life and raise my own farm…
Their hope and faith and general outlook on life really touched me; especially in the face of all they have gone through. And, when Patrick passed last month, I laid in bed for hours with the hymns record on repeat. It really brought me comfort in a time in which I was desperately in need of some faith and reassurance.
I absolutely love the two songs below, and recently, when things have been overwhelming or scary or just too much — aka anytime I read the news — I listen to these two songs to calm my soul.
Thanks for the intro, mom! I love you!
