Blog Tour: Peace, Be Still

Elder David S. Baxter, of the First Quorum of the Seventy, will host a blog tour for his new book, Peace, Be Still, from October 15–31.

In a world where it is increasingly difficult to simply “be still,” David Baxter teaches us how to find pause from the furiously fast and numbingly noisy world. Peace, Be Still will enable every reader to identify, feel, and realize a greater sense of personal peace.

Here is a brief description of 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.
