ABOUT DR. JOHN TRENT

 

BOOK NOW!

 

Without a doubt, I have the BEST job in the world.

I get to wake up in the morning and use my training as a counselor, educator, family pastor, husband, father, and coach to help people build even stronger friendships, family relationships, and faith!

It all began with the 1st Edition of an award-winning book, called, The Blessing, co-authored with my good friend, Gary Smalley.

We are now on the 4th Edition of The Blessing, added an author (my oldest daughter) and sold over 2 million copies.

Over the years I’ve continued to write (with over 20 books now in print), speak, and train others to create cultures of blessing in their homes, workplaces, ministries, and world.

I also get the honor of doing marriage, family, and relationship events all over the world.

My biggest accomplishment however is being married to my incredible wife of 40 years, Cindy. And being a father to our amazing daughters Kari, who now is working with us at StrongFamilies to help share the blessing, and our youngest daughter Laura, who is physically saving lives every day as a nurse in the Dallas area.

Cindy and I live in Arizona with Maximus the world’s greatest American Eskimo dog, and Buddie the wonder-dog/rescue terrier.

For me, it all comes down to helping YOU create a culture of blessing in your home and most important relationships – beginning with your relationship with your Heavenly Father.

I'VE HAD THE HONOR OF SPEAKING AT EVENTS AND PLACES LIKE:

 
  • Staff retreats for business like Chic-fil-A, Interstate Battery, and YPO (Young Presidents Organization)
  • PAO Pro-athlete events
  • Military bases all over the world – to help encourage our incredible service members and their families
  • AACC World Conferences
  • Promise Keeps to over 750,000 men
  • I even got to make a guest appearance on Opera

FAVORITE MEMORY AS A DAD:

Being at the Disneyland hotel for breakfast before going to the Monorail and park with my family. Kari was 8, and Laura was 4, and they asked me what my favorite thing in the world was. My response is same the as it is today, “any time I am at a restaurant, with my family, on vacation.” I’m so thankful we’ve had many more of these mealtime experiences as our girls have grown up.

FUN FACT:

I play the bagpipes…poorly, but enthusiastically!

FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM: 

The Mighty TCU Horned Frogs!! And the AZ Diamondbacks.

EDUCATION:

  • Th.M New Testament Greek – Dallas Theological Seminary
  • PhD in Marriage and Family Counseling – North Central Texas Federation of Colleges and Universities
  • B.A. Psychology, Religion – TCU – GO FROGS!
