During the first half of the show, I’ll be playing an interview I had with singer/songwriter Tammy Trent when we were together at the International Christian Retail Show in June. She will be performing this weekend at the Women’s Conference at Christian Family Church, so this is great timing to share this powerful interview. She shared with me her story of incredible loss and how God was so faithful, so you won’t want to miss this show! I’ll also have 3 copies of the pre-release version of her new CD, Sunny Days, to give away to the first three callers!
Tammy returned in August with her highly anticipated studio release in almost 5 years and shines brighter than ever. “This musical offering has brought me to the most beautiful season yet on my personal journey from love to loss and into a deeper understanding of God’s faithful commitment to us through life’s growing moments.”
Her new album, SUNNY DAYS, is packed with strong infectious melodies and is lyrically covered with the promises of Hope. Trent, who co-wrote 8 of the 10 songs says, “Although this is my sixth studio record, it’s the first album that I can truly say really captured everything that is soo important to me. All these songs are my way of responding to God’s sustaining grace in my life. I love to worship and feel captured by the Father when I just can’t seem to breathe on my own; I love to dance because it’s sooo freeing and injects soo much fun and joy into my life; and I’m still over the moon excited about sharing my faith and hope with those that feel like leaning in for a listen.”
Since 1995, Trent has been a familiar voice on Christian radio with a string of hits, including “Your Love Is 4 Always”, “It’s All About You”, “Run To The Cross”, “My Irreplaceabl”, and “Welcome Home”. She stepped away from the spotlight in 2001 after the tragic death of her husband in a diving accident, returning as a featured speaker and performer at the Women of Faith conferences in 2003. Trent spent four years with Women of Faith and was also a featured speaker and performer on the organization’s “The Revolve Tour” for teen girls, for two years. Since that time Tammy has maintained a very busy touring schedule, speaking and singing at women’s events all over the world.
Tammy’s dedication to the ministry was recognized in November of 2009 & 2010 when the Christian Music Hall of Fame handed her the award for Inspirational Female Vocalist of the Year!
She is also the author of Learning to Breathe Again: Choosing Life and Finding Hope After A Shattering Loss (W Publishing), Beyond The Sorrow: There’s Hope in the Promises of God (J. Countryman), and she co-penned the hilarious & brilliantly illustrated Children’s Potty Training book The Log Family: See You at the Beach (September Day) with her late husband Trent Lenderink who sadly never got to see his work completed.
Long time fans will hear what they’ve always loved about Tammy’s music: Contemporary Pop, danceable, memorable, straight-up songs full of Hope and Truth. Make room in your music department for this must-have album SUNNY DAYS from Tammy Trent today!
During my second half hour I’ll have author/speaker Debbie Jansen on the phone about her new book “Scriptures Against Abuse” and in studio Darling Romo-Lopez…a wife, mother, founder and president of The Pink Ring Club, and an tireless advocate in raising awareness and fighting against domestic violence. Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I though that would be a fitting topic to discuss. Believe me, there’s plenty of domestic violence occurring in Christian homes these days, so even if you aren’t a victim, chances are someone you know is suffering in silence.
Join us Saturday, October 12, from 11AM to Noon CST on AM 630 KSLR, on http://www.kslr.com or on http://www.iheartradio.com. And if you’re in the area, join Darling and I at El Jarro’s at 12:30 for a no host lunch as we “continue the conversation off the air!”
