Putting on Your Heavenly Crown with Elaine Dalton
Choosing grace and poise instead of hot takes and big reactions isn’t popular in our culture, but maybe it’s just the thing we need to have more peace in our lives. When is the last time you thought about what it means to be poised? Elder Mark A. Bragg said, “poise is not spoken about much these days and practiced even less in turbulent and divisive times.” Developing poise is a deliberate way to be active peacemakers in a world where having the loudest reaction gets the most attention. Poise rises above the noise and provides us with personal, steady calmness which then allows us to create more peace in the lives of others.
Part of developing poise is remembering and owning and believing in who we are.
Elaine Dalton joins Kathryn on this week’s episode where they discuss the lost art of poise and how it is an important part of peacemaking.
