    Finding Peace

    Two articles in this month’s New Era aim to help youth know how to find true and lasting peace in a world of turmoil:

    • A message from Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles discussing the kind of inner peace we can find only through the Savior (page 2).

    • An article contrasting the world’s understanding of peace with peace in Jesus Christ (page 6).

    Talk with Them

    Here are some questions you might ask:

    • What’s the difference between relaxing and finding inner peace?

    • When you feel fear and anxiety, what helps you overcome those feelings?

    Teach Them

    In family home evening or other teaching settings, consider using something you saw in the New Era. For instance:

    • Read Elder Ballard’s message (page 2) and share how you have seen the Savior and His gospel bring peace to your life and the lives of others.

    • Read the message by Elder Larry H. Wilson of the Seventy about the temple (page 20), and share what helped you prepare for temple ordinances.

    • Read the message by President Thomas S. Monson called “A Prophet’s Invitation: Study the Book of Mormon” (page 48), and share how you have been blessed by following President Monson’s counsel to study the Book of Mormon every day.
