Christ Centered Christmas Kit

Christmas Around the World!!!

Christmas is always a season of anticipation and celebration: anticipation for a Christmas filled with the Spirit of Christ, and celebration in honor of the miracle of His birth. This year, for our Missionary Christmas, we wanted to do something really meaningful and spiritual for our loved ones as they diligently serve our Heavenly Father – so we decided to send them a Christ Centered Christmas Box. Each mom ‘Ponderized’ on how she wanted to individually share this message – and as it turned out – each message and gift was completely different. We hope it will help fill our children’s hearts with the Christmas spirit that only He can bring.

If you would like to send your own ‘Christ Centered Christmas’ to your Missionary – check out this kit we put together to help you do just that!

Your 45-Page Kit will include the following:

✔ 1-Introduction Letter with easy to follow instructions to help you put together the Perfect Care Package.
✔ 4- Large (11.5X8.5″) Adjustable Stickers to decorate your 4 box flaps of your shipping package. Just peel and stick!  (These stickers are designed to fit a USPS Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box and large UPS boxes.  The stickers can also be easily trimmed to fit a USPS Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box as well as some Medium and Small UPS boxes or use your own box.)  * Please note the kit does not include the actual box,
✔ 1-Box Introduction Letter to be placed in your Box right before you tape it up.  This unique design lets your Missionary know the theme of your care package and that something special has been created just for them!
✔ 1-Page of Unique Envelope Designs that you can adhere to the front of your Letter to your Missionary and their Companion!  This page is also printed on sticker paper – so you just need to cut them out and adhere to any envelope of your choice. It’s that easy!
✔ 1-Custom Missionary Letter for you to include with your personal Letter to your Missionary.
✔ 15-Pages that can be used to put together your Missionary 12 Days of Keeping Christ in Christmas Music, Scripture, & Story Activity.
✔ 20-Pages that can be used to put together your Missionary Nativity Activity.

✔1-Page of Christmas Gift Tags and Quotes to continue with the theme of the box.

Merry Merry Everything!!! It’s always so fun to see the pictures that our missionaries send home of them opening up their crazy boxes decorated in whatever the theme that the box is. Most of the boxes we mailed were 12X12X8 which meant the flap size was just under 12X6 so you can simply cut one piece of 12X12 scrapbook paper in half for each flap. For the ‘Christ Centered Christmas’ box I used two pieces of Crimson Stripe AC Cardstock from the American Craft Company – both cut in half then trimmed to fit the box and attached with glue dots. We then printed off the MBM printables onto photo paper, cut them out, and adhered to the box with Glue Dots for durability.

You’ve Got Mail!!! One thing we always included in all of our Missionary Box Mom Boxes was a personalized letter to each Missionary from each Mother. Inside our letters we included our testimonies, the reason we chose that particular item to include in the box, along with uplifting messages filled with love. A lot of the items won’t make much sense as to why you are including them in the box unless you explain how it specifically applies to your Missionary and to Missionary Work. We also included a card signed by all of us for the missionary’s companion. Many times over I have received thank you letters from our Missionaries – but the things they thanked us all for the most was the letters we included. It’s just a little piece of ‘Home’ in a box! So don’t forget to write!

Ho Ho Ho!!! As we decided on each ‘Missionary Box Theme’, which we based around a scripture or missionary teaching idea, we would then brainstorm fun ideas that could be included in our box. I often wondered if our missionaries realized how comprehensive we were in our themes! It honestly might have been just as much fun for us to build these boxes as it was for them to receive them! Depending on the size of the box you are sending – you could include or delete any of the following items – or come up with a few of your own. We tried to make sure that most of our items could be used to enhance missionary discussions, to be given away, to decorate their missionary apartments and left for future missionaries when they moved on, or simply eaten and enjoyed. But of course there were always a few that were just for fun!

Christ Centered Christmas Ideas:

Christmas Gift #1. Nativity Activity with Personalized Hymn Book
For this gift I purchased a small Christmas gift box at the Dollar Tree Store and attached a 5X7 Nativity photo that I purchased at Deseret Book to the top with Glue Dots for durability. Inside the box I included the Nativity Activity, a personalized Hymn book in the appropriate language, two bells on ribbon decorated with Santa hats for the Elders or two bell bracelets for the Sisters (both from the Dollar Tree Store), and 2 candy canes.

Write a Letter to Your Missionary to Explain the Activity:
Inside the MBM you will find a letter for both a Sister and an Elder that you can quickly print. It has an explanation for the activity to explain everything for your Missionary.

The MBM Kit Includes: A Nativity Printable along with Tags and Stories for each nativity figure. Include the appropriate figures in a sandwich size Ziploc bag with the printables, stories, and handouts. (Easy to follow Directions Included)

If you desire you could create your own Tender Mercy Tree and Tender Mercy Scrolls.

Christmas Gift #2. The 12 Days of Keeping Christ in Christmas Music CD & Stories (Cards and Stories Included in the MBM Kit)
For this gift we put together a collection of songs and stories for our missionaries to listen to and read throughout the Christmas season. We first put together a music ‘Playlist’ (Your Customized Collection of Audio) on YouTube. It’s fairly easy to do and you can burn your ‘Playlist’ to a CD when you are finished or put them on an inexpensive Flash Drive. (Links to the songs provided below) You can do the same thing with iTunes, Pandora, or 8Tracks. Most of the talks and stories are included in the MBM kit unless they are subject to copyright law.  The kit comes with a cover page and you can either have them bound at any printing shop like Staples, Alphagraphics, etc. or you can buy a clear plastic file folder with binder and slip the stories inside and secure with the colored binder. The Links for the daily stories, poems, and lyrics below or you can copy and paste them into a Word Document to print them.) And finally we cut out the Day to Day cards (Found in the MBM Kit) which explains the activity and which songs to listen to and which stories and scriptures to read,  then we laminated the cards (optional), punched a hole in the top left corner of the cards and secured them together with a split ring.  (You could also tie them all together with a ribbon or use a jump ring.)

Page 3: Listen to ‘Welcome to Our World’. Read Luke 1:30-38, and ‘The Lord’s Trees’. Imagine: Am I living as Christ would have me live? Am I prepared to follow His plan for me?

The Lord’s Trees
Far away on a hillside grew a forest of trees – little and big, old and young, tall and small. The trees were very happy with life just as it was on the hillside. They loved the warm sunlight of summer, spring’s cool silvery rains, the gorgeous reds and golds of autumn and winter’s blanket of glistening snow. But sometimes, too, they spoke of the future, of the things they would like to do and be when they grew up. In this forest there was a mother tree and her three children.

One said, “You know, I should like to be a baby’s cradle. I have seen people come into this forest carrying babies in their arms. I think a baby is the sweetest thing I have ever seen and I should like to be made into a baby’s bed.” The second tree spoke. “That would not please me at all. I want to be something important. I should like to cross many waters and carry cargoes of gold.” The third tree stood off by himself, apparently in deep reflections, but did not speak. “And what would you like to be?” asked the mother tree. “Have you no dream for the future?” “No dream,” he answered, “except to point men to God. What could a tree do better than that?”

Years passed and the three little trees grew up to be beautiful tall trees. One day men came to the forest and cut down the first tree.

“I wonder whether I shall be made into a baby’s cradle now? I hope so. I have waited so long.” He whispered. But the little tree was not made4 into a cradle. Instead, it was cut into rough pieces and carelessly put together to form a manger in Bethlehem. He was heartbroken. “I do not like this at all.” He wailed. “This is not what I planned to be – shoved into this dark stable with no one to see me but the cattle.”

But God, who loved the little trees, whispered, “Wait, I will show you something.” And he did. For there were in the same country, shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, “Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God, and say, “Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth, peace, and good will toward men.” And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherd said one to another. Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which has come to pass, which the Lord hath made known to us. And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
In the stillness of the night, God had laid there His own little baby, the Son of God. The manger quivered with delight. “Oh, this is wonderful,” he whispered. “In all my dreams I never thought to hold a baby like this. This is better than all my planning. Why, I am part of a miracle.” And out on the hillside the trees of the forest clapped their hands because their brother, the little manger, had seen his wish come true.

Years passed by, and men came to the forest to cut down the second tree. “I wonder whether I shall be made into a great vessel now,” this one thought. “I have waited so long. Now perhaps, I shall do great things of which I have dreamed.” But, the little tree did not do great things. He was not made into a great ship to cross the ocean, but instead he became a tiny fishing boat, owned by a simple fisherman named Peter. “To think that my life has come to this,” he said. “Just a fishing boat. And Pete is only a fisherman.” But God who loves the little trees, said, “Wait, I will show you something.” And He did.

Far out from the crowd, came a person, called Jesus, who entered into the little boat and sat down and taught the people. He spoke of such wisdom, beauty and light that the multitude and eve that little boat listened eagerly. “This is wonderful,” he whispered. “In all my dreams I never thought to carry a cargo like this. Why, I am part of the miracle. Jesus came to the earth to teach all of the people the way to live. This is better than all of my planning.” ***And out on the hillside all of the trees of the forest clapped their hands because their brother, the little boat, had seen his wish come true.

Months went by, and men came to the forest and cut down the third tree. The one that wanted just to stand on the hill and point the way to God. He was most unhappy as the axe cut into his heart. “I don’t want to go from the valley,” he thought. “Why couldn’t they leave me alone?” But the men did not leave the little tree alone. They tore away his branches; they cut into his bark, in the form of a cross. The little tree quivered through all its being. “This is terrible,” he whispered. “They are going to hang someone. Oh, I never wanted this to happen to me. I only wanted to point men to God. This is awful.” But God, who loves the little trees said, “Wait, I will show you something”, and He did.

For one day, outside Jerusalem, a great multitude gathered. They had come to hang Jesus upon the cross. The sky became dark, and a storm came upon the land, there was wind and lightening. Earthquakes frightened the people. Some knew that a great mistake had been made. One Roman soldier, standing near the cross said, “Truly this was the Son of God.”

The body of Jesus was taken off the cross and carefully laid in a tomb. There was much sadness because of His great suffering. Then, a miracle happened; three days after, Jesus who had been dead, came to life again. He looked the same, yet he was different. Jesus had returned as a resurrected being, and He could never die again. He would live forever. And the cross began to understand. “This is wonderful,” he whispered. “I am part of a miracle. Jesus’ greatest mission was to give His life so that all who have ever lived on this earth can someday return to God and live with Him again. In all of my dreams I never thought to point men to God in this way. This is better than all of my planning.”

At this Christmas time, it is good for all of us to stop and think of that which Jesus has done for us. We can remember that Jesus, the Son of God, was sent as a gift to each one of us to teach us the way to live: we can study and learn the teachings of Jesus and keep His commandments and live as we should; then we too can live again with our Heavenly Father and Jesus and with our parents and family forever.
This is the Miracle of Christmas!

Page 4: Listen to ‘Carols Sing’. Read 2 Nephi 25:26, and ‘Santa Whispered’. Imagine: As you decorate this season think about what each symbol of Christmas represents.

Santa Whispered…
Teach the children the true meaning of

The Star – A Heavenly Sign of prophecy fulfilled long ages ago; the shining hope of all mankind.

Red – The first color of Christmas symbolizing the Savior’s sacrifice of all.

Fir Tree – Evergreen – The second color of Christmas shows everlasting life – the needles point heaven ward.

The Bell – Rings out to guide lost sheep back to the fold; signifying that all are precious in the eyes of the Lord.

The Candle – A mirror of starlight reflecting our thanks for the star of Bethlehem.

Gift Bow – Tied as we all should be tied together in bonds of goodwill forever.

Candy Cane – The shepherd’s crook used to bring lambs back to the fold, a reminder that we are all our brother’s keeper.

The Wreath – A symbol of the never ending, eternal nature of love, having no beginning and no end.
Please…teach the children.

Page 5: Listen to ‘Do you hear what I hear”. Read ‘Maybe Christmas Doesn’t Come From a Store’. Imagine: The best part of Christmas is focusing on the Savior, not the ribbons and bows.

Ensign December 1977: Maybe Christmas Doesn’t Come from a Store by Jeffrey R. Holland Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (Use 1st half of the talk – ending with “Christmas, then is for children – of all ages.)

Page 6: Listen to ‘Christmastime’. Read Matthew 10:39, and ‘The Gifts of Christmas’ by Howard W. Hunter. Imagine: The sweet sound of the angels singing, rejoicing, and ringing in the Savior’s birth.

Ensign December 2002: The Gifts of Christmas by President Howard W. Hunter
Give as Jesus Gave

“We should strive to give as Jesus gave. Giving of oneself is a holy gift. This Christmas, mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an Enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty of the earth. Speak your love and then speak it again. Christmas is a celebration. There is no celebration that compares with the realization of it’s true meaning – with the sudden stirring of the heart that has extended itself unselfishly in the things that matter most. Peace can only come through living the principles of the gospel and by following the program of the Prince of Peace. May we find our spiritual thirst quenched by the living water of the Savior. May He become our focal point at this Christmas season, and always.”
Howard W. Hunter

Ring Christmas bells
Ring them loud with the message bringing
Peace on earth
Tidings of good cheer
Come carolers
Come and join with the angels singing
Joy to the world
Christmastime is here again

Children gather around and listen
You’ll hear the sound
Of angels filling the sky
Telling everyone
Christmastime is here

Loved ones close to our hearts
And strangers in lands afar
Together share the joy

Page 7: Listen to ‘Mary’s boy child – Long time ago in Bethlehem’. Read Luke 19:38 and Poem ‘Happy Birthday dear Jesus’ by Michelle Davis. Imagine: A long time ago, a mother lay by the side of a tiny king, He taught men of faith to forgive.

A long time ago in a land far away
A child was born on a cold winter’s day
He wasn’t the baby your thinking about
But another small lad; he stood short and stout.

He grew up to be quite a caring old man
He loved little children, every one in the land.
He found the “Good Book” and studied its pages
It was the story of Jesus passed down through the ages.

His heart overflowed as he read. Could it be?
A love so divine that he died just for me?
A twinkle appeared in his eye on that day
He found a road straight to Heaven and Christ was the way.

As Christmas came close, his heart filled with joy
He’d show God’s people he loved them – every girl, every boy
He made lots of goodies and stocked up his shelves
Yes, Santa was busy and so were his elves.

He was filled with such love, that he wanted to share
So he handed out gifts to kids everywhere
Praise be to God. Let the angels sing
For this jolly old man spreads love for the King.

As he steps into the chimney, he looks high above
And whispers, “Happy Birthday dear Jesus. From Santa, with love.”

Michelle Davis


Page 8: Listen to ‘If you but trust in God to guide you’. Read John 14:18 and the Lyrics to ‘If’. Imagine: How the Savior is always there for us in our time of need.


If I trust in God to guide me
He will gently lead
If I bid him walk beside me
He my soul will feed
If I plead for hope and courage
He will hear my prayer
If I call Him in my weakness
He will always hear
If I put my trust in Jesus
His true lamb I’ll be
As a Shepherd seeks lost ones
He’ll watch over me
If I’m feeling sad or lonely
He will understand
He will heal my heart to hear it
He will comfort me
If I hear and heed His promptings
I’ll not go astray
With a still, small voice of wisdom
He will show the way
I will ever praise the Father
Trust in Jesus Christ
I will let the Holy Spirit
Guide me through my life

Page 9: Listen to ‘I Stand All Amazed’. Read John 13:12-16 and ‘He Who Would Be Chief Among You’. Imagine: What goodness the world would be filled with if we patterned our lives after the Savior’s ultimate example of service.

New Era January 1981:He Who Would Be Chief Among You by Carol Lynn Pearson

Page 10: Listen to ‘Alleluia’. Read Mosiah 15:5 and ‘I Remember’. Imagine: The emotional and physical pain Jesus felt in Gethsemane. How the heaven’s must have rejoiced once His great sacrifice was finally complete.

I Remember

It was a ministry to the beaten, bewildered people of Judah. When they were sick, He healed them; when they wept, He comforted them; when they were hungry, He fed them; when other forgot, He remembered. He was a lonely man seeking the lonely; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief – yet His sorrows were those of others and His grief not of His own making.

The humble loved Him, but many among the influential despised Him. Sadducees and Pharisees called Him a glutton, a wine-bibber, a friend of harlots. Such epithets left Him trembling in spirit. Once, while the city slept, He walked alone through Jerusalem’s empty street and out the eastern gate to the garden. There, above the moon-drenched city, He cried out, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered the children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and he would now!” (Matthew 23:37)

It began on a Thursday night in April, Jesus had returned to the city for that last time after a farewell supper with those who knew and loved Him best; he had led them to Gethsemane. There, in the garden, Jesus laid bare. His very soul in such anguish as only a God could endure. Others may think of Calvary as His place of atonement, but I think of Gethsemane, too.

In the morning, following His arrest, Jesus was brought before the high priest and the Jewish Sanhedrin for trial. He listened to the lies of false witness, felt the slap of hands upon His face, and heard the sentence of death for claiming to be the Son of God. He said nothing. Nor did He speak a defense before the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate. Even the fury of His own people shouting, “Crucify Him, Crucify Him” failed to break His silence. The ministry of words was over; only the ministry of blood remained.

As the sun reached its zenith at noon, the whipped, bleeding body of Jesus was being nailed to the cross like those He may have seen in Sepphoris as a child many years before. The hours dragged by in an agony of mockery and tears.

Mary stood by the cross. The sky grew dark. It was three o’clock…and Jesus, with a mask of inexpressible weariness upon His face, lifted His eyes to His Father’s eyes and whispered, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.” (Luke 23:46)

How do you remember Him?

Page 11: Listen to “One by One”. Read Ether 4:11-12 and Lyrics to “One by One”. Imagine: What a miracle His visit represents and a testament to the truthfulness of the Gospel.

One by One

One by one, everyone
One by one we came
To look upon our Lord
And feast upon His word,
One by one.
One by one, everyone
One by one, we came;
The halt, the blind, the lame
He healed us in His name,
One by one.
He spoke what no tongue can speak;
What ear hath not heard before.
We saw what no eyes hath seen;
The joys of eternity!
Then He blessed our little ones,
and we were overcome,
Alleluia, Alleluia
O Gloria.
One by one, everyone,
One by one we came
To look upon our Lord.

Page 12: Listen to ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Believe’. Read Luke 1:20-21, Child in a Manger, and ‘Seeing Christ in Christmas’ by Dieter F. Uchtdorf or ‘Wise Men and Women Still Adore Him’ by Russell M. Nelson or ‘Christmas Scene’ by Neal A. Maxwell. Imagine: The glorious arrival of the little babe, lying in the manger that holy night. The greatest gift.

Child in the Manger

Child in the manger
Infant of Mary
Outcast and Stranger, Lord of all
Child who inherits
All our transgressions
All our demerits on him fall

Once the most holy
Child of salvation
Gently and lowly
Now as our glorious mighty redeemer
See him victorious
O’er each foe

Prophets foretold him
Infant of wonder
Angels behold him on his throne
Worthy our Savior
Of all our praises
Happy Forever are his own.
