Regardless of his decision, you can instantly show that his choice was the correct one by revealing a prediction that has been hidden in plain sight all along.

Using the three picture illustrations of HOME, FAMILY, and DINNER TIME, your group will discover how God has given them people in their lives to be their family, to learn from them, spend time with them, and love them.

Did you know that wild turkeys have between 5,000-6,000 feathers? What a remarkable clothing those feathers make for a turkey!

What is more remarkable than that is that you and I can clothe ourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ as we are encouraged to do in Romans 13:14.

This original balloon sculpture design by Alisa J. Linn creates a large delightful turkey by twisting seven 260Q balloons into a colorful eye-catching character.

As always, Alisa's lesson powerfully presents strong life-changing scriptural truths. Numerous texts from the Old Testament are used to show the foundational importance God places on thankfulness. Verses from Ephesians 5:4 and Colossians 2:7 wonderfully address the challenge we face to rid ourselves of ungrateful attitudes and replace them with thankfulness.

This unique balloon sculpture design comes with step-by-step photo-illustrated twisting instructions and lesson.

This is an excellent lesson on the importance of thankfulness in prayer!

We are exhorted by God in Colossians 4:2 to be thankful while devoting ourselves in prayer. This easy-to-do, no sleight-of-hand effect creatively presents the truths of WATCHFULNESS and THANKFULNESS through a clever interactive presentation.

You show several cards which spell the words WATCHFULNESS and THANKFULNESS. Your volunteer freely shuffles the cards. You place an envelope containing a piece of paper upon which you have written a prediction onto the top of the deck of shuffled cards. When your volunteer opens the envelope it is revealed that prediction inside is the same as the letter card shuffled to the top of the deck by your volunteer, the letter 'U'.

Works every time! Only moments to learn! Simply make the cards, write U on a piece of paper and put it into an envelope and you are ready to go!

This presentation incorporates the best of Gospel Magic:
- Effect supports the Message without being distracting
- Interaction focuses attention
- Can be presented anywhere
