Peace within comes to us from the Lord when we study His word and obey it. In the scriptures we can find wonderful examples of prophets and other Old Testament people whose words and lives teach and show us how to obtain this peace. Many of these people lived in troubled times, just as we do, and they turned to their Father in Heaven and His prophets for guidance, just as we should.
This year we have chosen from the Old Testament and the Pearl of Great Price twelve good examples to help us learn about peace. As you can see, you and your life are also an important part of this year’s poster.
