Amber Cantorna | Author of Refocusing My Family

In her memoir, Refocusing My Family, Amber Cantorna unveils what it was like to be raised in one of the most anti-gay religious organizations still in existence today and how coming out as gay shunned her from the family she loved and burdened her with a degree of devastation that nearly took her life. With grace and transparency, Amber’s book sheds light on the harm that religious and family rejection reeks on the human soul, and offers to LGBTQ people and their religious families, a better way to love.

Amber Cantorna is an author, speaker, musician, and coach with a passion for helping LGBTQ people through their coming out process, especially those that come from conservative faith communities. As the home-schooled daughter of a 30-year executive at Focus on the Family, she grew up entrenched in the values that the organization embodies, and her conservative Christian parents worked hard to protect her from the outside world. But when Amber came out as gay at the age of 27, she shattered the perfect persona that her family strove to uphold. As a result, she lost everything, and her world forever changed.

Amber currently works with Dove Award winning artist and Grammy-nominee, Jennifer Knapp to raise awareness of the Inside Out Faith Foundation and give LGBTQ people a voice and a safe place to share their story.
