Tammy Trent Bio
Tammy Trent born Tammy Ranae Buffurn, is an American Christian singer. She was born in 1966.
She attended Forest Hills Northern High School but has family connections to Tri-Unity, including several nieces and nephews who are students there. In 1999, together with her husband moved to Nashville as she pursued her full-time singing career
Tammy became a familiar voice on Christian Radio in 1995 with hit songs, such as “Welcome Home”, “Run To The Cross”, “My Irreplaceable” & “Rain On Me” that have brought life and hope to her many listeners, but on September 11th, 2001 her songs ceased for a time. Tammy stepped away from the spotlight to heal after the tragic death of her husband and childhood sweetheart while on a missions trip. That day would change the world forever. That day changed Tammy forever.
One year later she returned as a featured speaker and performer at the Extraordinary Women’s conference and was also asked to share the Women of Faith platform for 4 years with her friends Sheila Walsh, Patsy Clairmont, Carol Kent, Kathy Troccoli, Anita Renfroe and Luci Swindoll. During that time Tammy also became a featured speaker, singer and author for The Revolve Tour for teen girls for 2 years. Her personal story of tragedy, restoration, healing and hope crossed over generational lines and her music inspired all ages, bringing strength and renewed joy.
You may have read Tammy’s story featured on the covers of “Today’s Christian Woman”, “Charisma”, and LifeWay’s “HomeLife” Magazines, or heard her on Focus on the Family, 700 Club, TBN, Daystar & Life Today TV. Or perhaps you even heard Max Lucado or Charles Stanley refer to Tammy’s amazing testimony of God’s faithfulness in a hopeless situation, during one of their sermons.
Tammy’s ministry has taken her all over the world, speaking at women’s conferences, church events, and retreats in South Africa, Australia, Singapore, Columbia, Ghana, Canada & the US. Tammy’s 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. Tammy says, “One of my greatest privileges on this journey of hope and healing is to be able to speak into someone’s life who feels hopeless and numb. I’ve been there too, and one thing I’ve learned is that we can never interpret our numbness as God’s absence in our lives”.
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 has authored 3 books including, Learning to Breathe Again: Choosing Life and Finding Hope After a Shattering Loss (W Publishing-Women of Faith Book Selection), Beyond The Sorrow: There’s Hope in the Promises of God (J Countryman Thomas Nelson), and she co-penned the hilarious & brilliantly illustrated Children’s 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.
Her latest 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.”

People everywhere are facing difficult situations and they need to know how to cope with the frustration and overwhelming emotions that accompany any uncertain situation. This book of hope from Tammy Trent interweaves third-person stories and letters of people who needed-and found-encouragement. “We’re not alone in our fight…in our struggles …in our loneliness…or in our questions. Other people are going through tough times too, and are pressing on through the storms. It’s usually easier for us to press on when we see that others have gone before us and have found joy again. We often need others to stand in the gap for us, when we cannot stand on our own during those difficult times. If we look-if we watch, we’ll see and notice that we are never alone. When it’s more then we can bear-Jesus stands in those gaps for us. He is able. Give it to God and let Him put your life back together again!”
