Tender and beautifully written, directed, and produced, this true-life story is unforgettable. Joey, Rory, and baby Indiana take an emotional journey together in To Joey, with Love, and that journey is fully shared with the film's audience. The couple's country/Christian music is used as the score throughout the film, adding to the emotional impact.

Some of the events in the Feeks' lives have been featured on the TV news, in magazines, and on Rory's popular blog, but this movie, created lovingly by Rory with an expert team of filmmakers at his side, is an exceptionally intimate and rewarding experience. And that's true regardless of your religious leanings. While the movie honors Christian precepts and traditions, it's ultimately an indelibly human story for families with mature kids and teens.
