ABOUT THE BOOK
“No waters can swallow the ship where lies
The Master of ocean and earth and skies.
They all shall sweetly obey thy will:
Peace, be still; peace, be still.”
(Hymns, “Master, the Tempest is Raging,” no. 105.)
Our modern world is full of fast-paced stress and jam-packed schedules. Both trials and blessings happen to us so quickly that there is rarely a moment of peace. It is easy to be overwhelmed and lost.
In Peace, Be Still, Elder David S. Baxter of the Seventy describes ways for us to find peace in our crazy world by turning to our Lord, Jesus Christ. He speaks of principles to learn, habits to gain, and places to go to find peace in our daily lives and at home. This inspiring book will help us through the tempests in our lives and lead us to a greater sense of personal peace by encouraging and instructing us to follow Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A sweet book about finding peace in a busy and confusing world. I especially appreciated the emphasis on receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost can provide direction, revelation, comfort, and peace when sought worthily. A good book for me to read since I get so easily stressed by the business of life. Elder Baxter talks about things that remove peace from our lives and where and how we can find it again. He talks about death, repentance and forgiveness, places to find peace (like the temple), changing perspectives and attitudes, and enjoying the love of Christ. A great book for those like me who need to be reminded that peace can be found amidst the challenges and difficulties that surround us. Highly recommended.
