Rory Feek Remarries 8 Years After Losing Wife Joey to Cancer

It's been 8 years since Rory Feek lost his wife, best friend, and music partner Joey Feek to terminal cancer. Now he's tying the knot again, this time, with daughter Indiana by his side.

“I can’t and don’t want to explain that feeling to anyone. Turning to your husband and seeing him die inside. Seeing him completely break. Seeing your children feel and suffer your pain in front of your eyes. The pain is unbearable.”

Thankfully, they didn’t have to bear it alone. Emily says Sufficient Grace Ministries came alongside her and Ryan throughout the entire process.

From the moment she was given Pitocin to induce labor, to the time they were released to go home, the Ohio nonprofit provided answers, comfort, direction and support to the Muellers.

“Finding out your baby died is unfathomable,” Emily writes. “Learning you have to be induced and deliver your deceased child is way beyond that. My heart instantly ached for any woman that has told me she had a stillborn.”

Even in the midst of devastation and loss, Emily says God has not left their side, but instead provided them with support and a community that has shown them incredible love.

“Jesus decided he needed his own beekeeper and took our precious son, Emersyn Jacob, back up to Heaven with him.”

She is hopeful for the future, and the many ways that their experience, and Emersyn’s life and death will take them on a journey of redemption. Their pain and suffering is not the end, but the beginning:

“What we have gone through was not in vain and the Lord Almighty will lead us on our path to heal and learn his journey.

Just as you do not know the path of the wind and how bones are formed in the womb of the pregnant woman, so you do not know the activity of God who makes all things. Ecclesiastes 11:5”
