The Savior’s Birth
Illustrated by Shauna Mooney Kawasaki; photos by Kelly Larsen
To make the ornaments, you will need: heavy paper, glue, scissors, crayons or markers, and paper clips.
Glue this page to heavy paper and let the glue dry.
Cut out the ornaments and punch a hole in each small circle.
On the back of each ornament, draw your own picture of the same event or of a modern Christmas decoration.
Bend a paper clip into a hanger and hook one end through the hole.
In a family home evening, you and a parent can read aloud “The Savior’s Birth” (page 30). As you read, family members can take turns hanging the ornaments on your Christmas tree.

My Book of Prophets
Note: These pages are to be added to the book started in the Friend, September 2001, pages 32–33.
Instructions: Remove page 33 from the magazine, glue it to heavy paper, and color the pictures. Cut out the pages and punch holes on the circles. Stack the four pictures with Gordon B. Hinckley on the bottom, then Howard W. Hunter, then Ezra Taft Benson, and Spencer W. Kimball on top. On the back of each page, write what you have learned about that prophet during the year. Add the pages to the back of the book you started in September.
