About the founder

Amber struggled with unrepentant fear, selfishness, idolatry of alcohol, believing lies, and self-delusions for more than 10 years while in active addiction. Since her sobriety date of November 7th, 2005, she has worked with hundreds of people in jails, churches and treatment centers across the U.S. to stay meditative on glorifying God. She is now a Christian wife, mother, author, and recovery activist! She began Captives Free Missionary Society with the Board of Directors in May of 2023.
