A Weekly Devotional from 'Families Matter Most'
Marshmallow Madness, presented by Jenn Dean, is the easiest family devotional you’ll ever come across! We challenge you to spend 20 minutes a week being intentional about passing your faith on to your kids…and all you need is a bag of marshmallows.

Marshmallow Madness Devotional
This week: The Good Shepherd
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” John 10:11
This weeks family devotion is easy and fun!
Look up John 10:11-15. You’ll need large marshmallows, small marshmallows (or nibble some big ones) and pretzel sticks for legs (if ya got ‘em). While making sheep together, ask your children the following questions:
What is a shepherd?
How does a good shepherd lay down his life for his sheep?
What would happen to a flock of sheep if there was no shepherd?
Are we like the sheep or the shepherd?
Do we have a good shepherd? Who is he? JESUS!
Send me a picture of your sheep before you eat them, please. And you might want to make a family of sheep- the salty pretzels and sweet marshmallows are delicious!
Finish off with a quick family prayer. God cares about every area of our lives; let’s encourage the children to pray about whatever is on their hearts. Add to your prayer journal weekly, and be sure to leave space to jot down a quick note when God answers the prayer. Your kids will grow stronger in their faith when they can look back and see what the Lord has done.

I am starting part- time employment in a flexible work environment, so I can be flexible whether I go in on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday mornings.

I would prefer a Christian environment and someone that has experience and interest in working with children. If interested, please contact me and we can discuss rates and a potential schedule further at email@example.com or by telephone at (306) 216-9382.
