practice, and more practice.

first of all, read this article.

I love it. I love reading and studying about grace. I think it's something that is often misunderstood, just like the author stated, "The truth is, Jesus paid our debt in full. He didn’t pay it all except for a few coins. He paid it all. It is finished.” 
we are not here to pay Christ back for what he has done for us, he asks us to show how grateful we are for it.

I loved the analogy of piano lessons, it was so simple, and yet perfectly depicts the role that grace plays in our salvation.

I really like the thought i am "learning heaven". I feel like with enough practice I can learn anything, and it is so comforting that that is exactly what the Savior asks, because he has already met the demands of justice, he allows us the time that we require to get better- each person is allowed their own timeline. It is so amazing. It doesn't matter who might be ahead, or behind me, as long as I am moving forward, I am doing what he asks. Growing, and becoming more like him. 

when I think about the statement, "his grace is sufficient", I can feel myself filling with hope. I feel worries and self doubt leaving, because I know that statement is true. All I need to do is keep trusting and keep trying. this line has been running through my mind since I read this article, "The miracle of the Atonement is not just that we can go home but that—miraculously—we can feel at home there."
What a wonderful promise!
