WATCH: Logan Lynn’s #NatCon17 Appearances and Performance at the National Council Awards of Excellence (PHOTOS + VIDEO)
I had one of the most magical moments of my life and career this past week with the National Council in Seattle. It was a whirlwind of inspiration and recognition and I’m moved beyond words. (Which I realize is complicated in a written post like this. ha!)

Thank you again to the National Council! My heart is full.
