Today I am sharing a highlight video of the 180th LDS General Conference which was held April 3-4, 2010 in Salt Lake City, Utah. . . This offers a great recap of the significant messages and themes of the Conference in less than 10 minutes, and is well worth your time. Enjoy!
Never give up, never give in. You were born to win!
