I created oneClimbs as a place to organize my thoughts and share my observations with anyone who might find the information useful. Though I may speak passionately or convincingly in some of this content, PLEASE don't simply take my word alone on anything. Always seek the truth of all things through study and prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.

This is an amazing video of the inner workings of a cell. The complexity is astounding and the people who put the video together really did a great job of showing these processes in action.

These four words—“Receive the Holy Ghost”—are not a passive pronouncement; rather, they constitute a priesthood injunction—an authoritative admonition to act and not simply to be acted upon.

A powerful excerpt from a Martin Luther King speech that is very inspiring and definitely worth sharing.

This video is a total must see to get you in the spirit of the Christmas season. Every now and then true goodness just spills out into the open and it is amazing the effect that it has.

To most living today the word ‘holocaust’ is not a very pleasant word. But like many words today that make up our vernacular, this word has very ancient origins that take us far beyond World War 2.

I’ve been thinking about how we refer to the sacrament as an ordinance that “renews” our baptismal covenants, but is that all there is to it or is there more? Of course there is more! The more I learn about any gospel topic or doctrine, the more I find incredible depth and richness.

One particular verse in the Book of Mormon should be taken note of by those who believe its divine origins and those who do not.

The following quotes are from Brigham Young’s discourses originally but I got them from the Teachings of Brigham Young church manual. He makes some very profound statements on his attitudes concerning finding and accepting truth.

What is salvation? What does it mean to be ‘saved’? I think if you asked a thousand people, then you would get probably a thousand different answers. Is it really that complicated, or is it really simple? Where do we go to find the answers?

At some point in life we all may have struggled with becoming distracted while we pray; our minds wander off to other topics or we don’t feel like a connection is being made. Several years ago my Institute of Religion teacher shared something with me that changed how I viewed prayer forever.

In her 2010 FAIR Conference presentation “The Two Trees”, Valerie Hudson discusses the relationship and differences between men and women in the gospel with insights into the two trees in the Garden of Eden.

Although no single comprehensive description of the Book of Mormon plates has been preserved, the Prophet Joseph Smith and several people closely associated with him made various statements that include partial descriptions of the plates. When we consider all the sources together, quite a detailed picture emerges of the physical characteristics of the ancient Nephite record.

The pride cycle is something known to Latter-day Saints through the study of the Book of Mormon. It usually consists of prosperity followed by pride, then destruction and humility in a course that seems to continually repeat itself. But are there exceptions and is this seemingly circular pattern always met with the same results?

This is a Mormon Messages video that I noticed today on lds.org. I thought it presented a wonderful analogy for the Spirit.
