“As the days and months melted into one another, Moriah learned that she could still have a measure of joy within by approaching each day and each task with a prayer and a smile, no matter how she felt inside. And somehow the smile on her face seemed to drift down into her spirit a little more each time.”
– Iris Carignan, Moriah’s Wings
Desparity’s life felt a lot like her name, bitter despair. Snatched from her mother and everything she loved, sold into slavery in a foreign land, Desparity thought her life was over. When Naaman’s wife, purchases her from the slavers, she grants her a new name, Moriah Asha—meaning Chosen of God and Hope.
Like her new name, Moriah’s life undergoes unexpected changes under her new mistress’s care. When Moriah discovers a hidden treasure in her doll’s pocket, she clings to the newfound hope it represents. Bullied for her faith, Moriah remains steadfast.
With God to guide her, and complete trust in His goodness, Moriah may be able to be more than a living testimony to God … she may be able to save Naaman’s life!
Through gorgeous illustrations and her storyteller’s charm, Iris Carignan brings this young servant girl to life in her children’s book Moriah’s Wings.
While anyone who hears the biblical story will remember Naaman, the military captain plagued with leprosy, many gloss over the young servant girl who led Naaman to healing. This retelling of II Kings, chapter 5, is a beautiful reminder that God can use anyone, no matter their age or status, to work miracles in His people’s lives.
