Amber attended those meetings and began to grow immensely in her faith. At the end of her sophomore year of high school, she felt called to be a part of our TFC ministry team, which travels to churches around the area to minister to them in song and skit. Each year the team consists of teenagers who are serious about their faith and want higher accountability and growth in their spiritual walk. As Amber became involved on the team, it was apparent her health was declining. She would have severe coughing episodes that would last for minutes, take her breath away, and cause her face to turn blue, but she never told anyone about her cystic fibrosis or acknowledged that it was a problem.

Amber has dedicated her life to seeing others ignited with the fire of the truth that fuels every breath she takes. t know where Breathtaking will take her, but we celebrate her obedience to His calling and praise Him for the opportunity to know and minister alongside her. s love is his doing whatever needs to be done, at whatever cost, so that we will see and be satisfied with the glory of God in Jesus Christ. Let me say it again. The love of God is his doing whatever needs to be done, at whatever cost to himself or to us, so that we will see and be satisfied by the love of God in Christ forever and ever.?
