In 2012, at the age of twenty-seven, Amber Cantorna came out to her family as gay. As the daughter of a Focus on the Family executive, telling this truth came at a high cost.

Refocusing My Family is Amber's journey from the suffocating expectations of Focus on the Family to the liberating joy of choosing her own family.

After struggling under the weight of perfectionism, reputation, and keeping up appearances, Amber boldly stepped into her true identity. In the process, she discovered the true love of God.
