A Grammy is really cool… but honestly, the coolest thing for me has been my daughter, who is so proud of it… to watch the lightbulb go on for her—that means so much to me…

I’ve been blessed to write with amazing artists that I love and respect… I don’t take it for granted…

The song I’m most proud of has to be between Rose Petals and The Medicine… I love it when a person says they felt something they never felt before because of the song… 

The first thing that you have to integrate isn’t the music, but the person… they have their own culture and view of the world… it’s not fair to invite my songs but not invite me…

So if you’re going to bring someone in, you have to know that you’re bringing in a person… you have to learn to love each other… and then the songs will come…

The church I grew up in was an anomaly among the churches in the area… we set the culture that worship isn’t about your preference but about giving glory to God… the sound of unity is so much more important than what the chord changes are… 

I’ve so appreciated being at New Life because we can do hymns and then go to gospel music… 

What keeps me ‘true north’ is my wife, who doesn’t care about Grammys… I’ve learned to lean on the relationships that don’t need anything from me other than for me to be whole… 

My wife and daughter don’t thrive from me being successful but from me being grounded, close to Jesus, and dedicated to his cause… 

If the things that are happening to me now had happened when I was 25, I wouldn’t have been able to handle it… I’m so glad to be surrounded by the people I’m surrounded by now…
