The Land of Milk and Honey–Food and More From Israel is a pictorial record of our trip to Israel.
Have you been to the Holy Lands?
My husband has always wanted to go to the Holy Lands. Me, not so much, although my father used to claim going to Israel changed his life which made me wonder what I was missing. We embarked on the trip of a lifetime with great expectations and I’ll admit, a bit of trepidation.
People ask me, “Did it change your life?”
While I guess it’s too early to know exactly how God will use this experience in my Christian walk, I compare the journey with our visit to The Tonight Show studio in Burbank a few years ago. After I spent hours standing in line, then sat in the studio audience and witnessed firsthand all the people (band, stagehands, Jay, and guests) and mechanics of the show, I’ll never watch Jay with the same eyes again. It’s much more interesting to me now that I’ve seen it live.
Likewise, I’ll never read the Bible with the same eyes. The geography and characters have new meaning and context. What a faith-builder!
In addition to archeological digs, cathedrals, and white stone walls, I had my eye on the modern people and their food.

I got it at home but it came into full bloom while we were gone.
