Amber is the President for Sole Desire Ministries, a non-profit organization that started out as a worship ministry with a hunger relief program and resources for orphanages.  Through this ministry and its work during Hurricane Katrina, Amber began leading worship in Spanish and has since had the opportunity to minister to thousands in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Peru and Israel.

She loves people and desires to see every person experience an intimate relationship with God.  Amber's message is one of restoration, healing and love.  She has been on a journey the last few years that has had its share of valley experiences. Amber openly shares her testimony of going through a divorce while in the ministry and dealing with her daughter's diagnosis of a neurological disease that causes tumors in all her vital organs.  As she believes for her daughter's complete restoration, Amber gives hope and encouragement through music to others who need healing in their lives.  Her heart is to see God take the brokenness in every life and turn it into something beautiful.
