Top Takeaways from this episode

Brooke shares how there are physical and spiritual ways to prepare yourself for peace. Her three ways are

  1. Read the book
    Physical action: We have to do the work! No shortcuts, no hacks. Lean in. Embrace the effort. Celebrate the effort!
    Spiritual action: Literal meaning of the phrase here, we need to be in the scriptures.
  2. Carve out white space
    Physical action: When our physical surroundings reflect the lives we want to live, we are able to be more in touch with our internal feelings. Clear out a space—even if it’s just a chair in your home—that feels like a place where you can connect with the Spirit.
    Spiritual action: See out the quiet and solace of the temple, a literal white space for you to attend. If your life is too busy for that to be a regular event, take the time to be quiet and still.
  3. Anticipate it
    Physical action: Look for it all around you and pay attention to what you want to be more of a focus in your life. You will see more of it when you look for it.
    Spiritual action: Trust that God will fill you with peace. He is a God of peace and it is one of his greatest strengths.

Small & Simple Challenge

Take the time to implement these three principles into your life this week. Read even just a little of the Book of Mormon each day to “read the book.” Perhaps make your bed every morning as a practice of “carving out white space.” Look for Heavenly Father’s signs that he is sending you peace and know that it is coming.
