JWK: So, tell me about this video that is just going up on YouTube as this blog is posted and which we’re basically debuting on Beliefnet today.

PG: This one is very close to me and my family. A few years ago, a young boy by the name of Bailey Trinder was driving home from football practice. He was only seventeen years old…and he wrecked his vehicle. He wrecked his pickup truck. A good friend of our family. We all attend the same church. We saw this go out on a prayer chain that Bailey has been life-flighted to…the major trauma hospital in Orlando. So, my wife and I immediately found a babysitter for our kids and we headed to that emergency room just to be there in prayer and support in whatever way we could. That’s how everything just unfolded.

So, I wrote a song about it. It’s called We’re Gonna Do This. The experience that we received that night in the emergency room really showed the faith of a family. When your faith is put in the fire, what do you do? We experienced that with the Trinder family. We were joined by over 100 people. It was a mix of ministers, pastors…people from his high school, from the football team, coaches. The community just came together. That told me just, okay, we’re gonna do to this – and we’re gonna do this together. So, I took it to pen and paper and I wrote the song called We’re Gonna Do This. The song is not my story…It’s Bailey’s story and his family’s story…I just kinda put it to music and shared out.

JWK: What do you hope people take from the song?

PG: Oh, man – that you know what? There is hope. If you have faith, take hold of that faith. In whatever dark time you’re going through, there is another side to it. You’re gonna come out on the sunny side. You know, it’s not gonna be easy but if you come together, the chorus (of the song says) “with hope, faith, family and strength, we’re gonna do this!” You can do this. No matter what your obstacles are, you can do this (and) as (we) come together, we’re gonna do this.

JWK: Definitely a good message – one which I think would apply to individual situations and to what our country is going through.

PG: Absolutely.

JWK: What’s ahead for you?

PG: October is going to be a big month for us. We got a single that we wrote hoping to inspire people. It’s gonna be called Temporary Mess. October is National Bullying Prevention Month. The song was inspired by my seven-year-old son who was going to school and was, you know, bullied. I was bullied myself growing up. We just felt in our heart that we need to write about this, share a message and encourage people that, you know, this mess we’re in, it’s temporary. It too shall pass. Being Christians we get that our life here is temporary. This mess is temporary. This hurt, this pain, whatever craziness is temporary. One day this too shall pass. That’s what the song talks about. The song encourages people to hang on. Be your best – but be you and know that God created every single one of us differently for a purpose. Everybody does have a purpose.
