The True Function of Grace

I was deeply touched by two articles in the April 2012 issue: Elder David A. Bednar’s article, “The Atonement and the Journey of Mortality” (page 12), and Kristen Nicole Cardon’s article, “Amazing Grace” (page 10). My questions about the true function of grace in our mortal lives and in our pursuit for eternal life were answered perfectly. I am grateful for these articles—they have increased my understanding so much, and I ponder them again and again.

In the January 2012 First Presidency Message, “Living the Abundant Life,” we neglected to attribute a quotation to Mary Anne Radmacher. The quotation is found on page 5 of the Liahona. Ms. Radmacher’s original quotation reads, “Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” It appears in, among other publications by Ms. Radmacher, Courage Doesn’t Always Roar (2009). We apologize for the oversight.
