Marshmallow Madness: Homemade Honey Marshmallows
Did Jesus eat honey?
Honey was the sweetener of the day when Jesus walked the earth, and He would’ve eaten it often. I’ve wanted to make my own marshmallows for some time, and now that I’ve found a recipe for a healthy version made with honey (only 4 simple ingredients and twenty minutes!) it seems appropriate to focus on honey marshmallows this week. The recipe only takes 5 minutes to prepare, but then it needs to set for about 20, so while you’re waiting, quiz the family on these honey verses to see how sweet their scriptures skills are:
Ask them to guess the answer, and then look it up to see who’s the fastest:

Then their father Israel said to them, “If it must be so, then do this: take some of the best products of the land in your bags, and carry down to the man as a present, a little balm and a little honey, aromatic gum and myrrh, pistachio nuts and almonds.

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.How did this work for you? Did you adapt it to fit your family?
