About the Book

Read by the author.

“Sir, your sons have been in a car accident. How quickly can you get here?”

The phone call no parent wants to receive would lead to a miracle only God could give.

When Jeremy and Emily Freeman’s teenage son Caleb was in a devastating car accident, doctors gave him a 10 percent chance of survival. Fear of losing a child was all too fresh for the Freemans—their seven-year-old son, Trey, had died just four years earlier from a genetic immunodeficiency.

            But God.

In #butGod Jeremy shares the incredible story of Caleb’s recovery, the darkness that nearly overtook their family in the waiting, and the #butGod movement that captured the prayers of Christians around the world. #butGod includes heartfelt excerpts from Emily’s prayer journal and encouragement from Jeremy that goes beyond platitudes to a hard-won trust in God’s goodness. This inspiring story offers

  • greater understanding of the beauty God can bring through suffering;
  • an honest glimpse of how one family grew closer together despite grief, tension, and doubt;
  • a powerful example of how God works through the prayers of His people.
  • hope for whatever struggle you are facing;


Whatever sorrow you are walking through, #butGod leads you to the sweetness found in trusting God with suffering…and the deeper faith that comes from seeing His purpose in the pain.

A playlist and daily devotionals are included in the audiobook companion PDF download.
