"September 11th...on this morning, I got the phone call that I had dreaded getting all night long the night before….'Tammy, we found Trent.' He was about 100’ below the water in Jamaica’s Blue Lagoon, still hanging onto his underwater scooter, and it appears something had struck him on the back of the head while he was free diving. And he didn’t survive. He didn’t make it. He was gone.
"I won’t lie, when I close my eyes it seems just like yesterday. But I know I’m NOT that same girl standing on the edge of water praying that my life wouldn’t change. But that’s just it, everything was about to change and God knew it and He needed it to change. He needed MY life to change in order to bring Him Glory and the highest Honor and sincere Praise for what He was about to do with my new life, through my brokenness and pain. And Trent’s life, once again, was a huge part of that plan."
Tammy Trent is a gifted communicator who draws her audience close with her contagious humor and fun, energetic personality, and yet, the sincerity of her heart and wisdom of life experience is woven through the very words she speaks and sings.
She has reached millions around the world through her story of tragedy to triumph and says, "One of my greatest privileges on this journey of hope is to be able to remind others that we can never interpret our numbness as God's absence in our lives."
