Product Description

The Israelites didn't enjoy being slaves in Egypt. They never stopped praying for deliverance or hoping their situation would change, but although they hated their condition they eventually became used to it. Over the years they adapted to the culture, learned to speak the language, and even developed a fondness for Egyptian food. But instead of simply adapting to their new situation, they adopted it---so much so that when God did deliver them it wasn't long before they were crying to go back to Egypt---back to the things that had brought them comfort.

Most of us can relate to the Israelites. At some point we have experienced "Egyptian" periods where we became slaves to stressful relationships, problems with children, financial struggles, or sin. And although we despised our bondage, we ended up retaining a fondness and craving for the very things that enslaved us---cravings that are opposite to the delights God has prepared for us. Like the Israelites, we crave leeks and onions even though we now live in a "milk-and-honey" land. No matter how hard we try, we'll never be able to make leeks and onions blend with milk and honey.

In Living a Milk-and-Honey Life, author Sharon Norris Elliott challenges us to come to grips with the leeks-and-onions issues in our lives. She helps us identify exactly where we are so that we can better understand how to get to the place God would have us go. Living a Milk-and-Honey Life will help you make the journey from bondage to deliverance and teach you to embrace God's cravings so you can fully enjoy the goodness & sweetness of a milk-and-honey life.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sharon Norris Elliott
Located in: South Gate, CA
Submitted: April 17, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a Christian, a graduate of Biola University, a full-time high school English teacher, an author, a speaker, a wife, a mother, and a friend. I absolutely love teaching the Bible. It is also rewarding to teach other writers at Christian writers' conferences like Sandy Cove, Mount Hermon, and Glorieta, and to teach other Christian speakers at CLASSeminars.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  My motivation behind this project began years ago in a conversation with two of my friends about how God had put up with us when we didn't deserve it - much like He did with the Israelites. I want my readers to understand that God loves them and His word really can work in their lives if they'll give it a chance.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope readers will find their way out of their "discomfort" zones and into the place or places where God wants them.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Other than God, my greatest sources of inspiration in the past were my parents who lived what they believed and always believed in and supported me. Presently, my greatest sources of inspiration are my husband, my sons, and my family and friends. They all inspire me by the authentic lives they live and that encourages me to continue to be as authentic and transparent as I can be.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Check out www.MilkAndHoneyLife.com. That website will introduce you to Milk & Honey Life Retreats, incredible soul-stirring spa retreats for Christian women.
