As you may have noticed by my last post I love Christmas. I decided today to keep it short and sweet and just share one of my favorite holiday decorations I’ve made over the years.

I love the Nativity story. I love the birth of the Savior and the love, hope, and joy that everyone must have felt at his birth. I can only imagine the love that Mary must have felt for her son, and the faith that Joseph must have had. Every year I try and find myself in the story. Last year I related to Mary, and this year I think I’ve found myself among the shepherds who upon their visit from the Angels went to see for themselves. After finding the little family as promised the shepherds made it known abroad the glad message of the birth of our Savoir. I have felt so much love and peace in my life because of the Savoir that I want to share this glad message abroad.

So without any further ado today I’m sharing my Christmas Nativity Printables. They are free for your noncommercial use. Just please link back to this original post if you share them.  I’ve selected a few of my favorite verses about the Nativity story and included them with the silhouette outlines.

My sister is an awesome graphic designer and helped me fine-tune my designs and print them. I printed my copy on a 12×18 but for your easy printing I have included a pdf printer friendly size. Enjoy!

This picture was from the very first year I made this nativity in our very first apartment! Over the years where I have hung my Nativity story has changed, this year it is above our dining room table. It has been a great reminder to focus daily during Christmas on the birth of the Savior and the scriptural accounts of his birth.

Hopefully you enjoy this nativity as much as I do! Feel free to share and comment as to who you find yourself as in the Nativity Story this year.







Here’s a little about me: I usually don’t buy things that I could make. I like to read and learn. I have dreams of being a mom, living in foreign countries, and trying new things. I take a ton of pictures. I collect rocks from the places I’ve been. I’m trying to learn French. I like to eat. I’m a Mormon.
