The Gift of Peace

Galations 5:22 - "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace."
Isaiah 32:17 - "And the work of righteousness shall be peace."
John 14:27 - "My peace I give unto you."

Peace comes from living gospel principles and joy comes from serving others. It's really that simple. And it hasn't changed since I wrote about it a year ago: Peace and Joy

Henry B. Eyring - Spiritual Preparation
"The great test of life is to see whether we will hearken to and obey God’s commands in the midst of the storms of life. It is not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage."

Music with a Message - Messages of Peace

"Peace - real peace, whole-souled to the very core of your being - comes only in and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. When that precious truth is discovered and gospel principles are understood and applied, great peace can distill in the hearts and souls of our Heavenly Father's children. Said the Savior through Joseph Smith, 'He who doeth the works of righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come' (D&C 59:23)."

"The ability to have an unsettled conscience is a gift from God to help you succeed in this mortal life."

Richard G. Scott - The Path to Peace and Joy
"Peace is the precious fruit of a righteous life. It is possible because of the Atonement of the Savior. It is earned through full repentance, for that leads to refreshing forgiveness."

Thomas S. Monson - Treasured Gifts
"The passport to peace is the practice of prayer."

Basically the answer is to simplify, serve others and remember the Savior through prayer, worship and expressing gratitude.
