Holy Stable, Celebrate the Miracle - Heidi Hanseen

During the holidays I am drawn to anything nativity related. I don't get very excited about Santa and his minions but to read about the glory of my Savior gets me excited all season long.
Such a beautiful, compact book. Written in poetic prose, on aged looking pages with gold trimming. Detailed, yet simple.. much like our saviors birth.
Heidi Hanseen could have easily just put out a book for the holiday season, but she added dimensions to it to make the story come alive for the reader. The included CD reads the story including music and narration for a spiritual journey for the entire family.
Also on the cd she includes a shorter version without additional harp interludes. Also an instrumental version so that you can put on your own nativity play. You can download the pageant script free with purchase. Use the script for your own family to act out the pageant or share it with your church family and the youth participate in a group nativity.
Beautiful and inspirational in music and verse.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Holy Stable: Celebrate the Miracle, restores the tender joys of the season! Discover how sharing the gift of Jesus’ love blesses relationships, as you enjoy the magic of children’s narration, original music and song. Mary and Joseph’s devotion to God and sublime caring for each other will bring you to experience the story of Baby Jesus’ birth as never before.
Holy Stable is more than just a Christmas “play”! It has everything an actual pageant has and is a perfect highlight to our Christmas season!

Holy Stable brings about inspired memories, the play adapts for a few participants or a larger group and for use with or without your own vocal talent. Harp, wooden flute and violin instrumentals come with and without vocals and narration and are coordinated with the innovative script, including tips, which are offered to you as a downloadable bonus gift at

Her long held interests in studying scripture, benefiting relationships, drama, music, artistic expression and nurturing love came together in this multi-media experience.
