Out of Egypt

(Author Deborah J. Moriah)
About the author
Deborah J. Moriah is no stranger to the experience of oppression; being only five when these experiences began.
Since then, she has encountered this problem in both in the covert subtleties of systemic racism and in the overt painfulness of prejudice.

Throughout her life she has developed a strong resilience and has learned many lessons. These lessons are now published in her premier book Out of Egypt and Into Focus, as a gift to those experiencing similar oppression. It is the author's understanding of God's promises to oppressed people.
Deborah was born in Moncton, New Brunswick and now resides with her daughter in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
About the book
Being a person of African descent carries its own unique challenges. It is difficult to find the answer to everyday life questions without sometimes being led astray.
Many of us are still holding on to anger; an anger that stems from the psychological affects of slavery. It can be difficult not to blame the pains of the past and even more difficult not to blame God for allowing past injustices to take place.
God has a plan for each and every one of us. More importantly He has a great plan for this world that we can all be a part of despite who we are, where we have been and what we look like.
Out of Egypt, refers to liberation. It is a reminder that, like the Israelites, people of African descent have physically escaped captivity. It is also a reminder that we need to allow God to guide us mentally from resentment and confusion and into focus.
