Inspirational author and speaker on women’s lives Kathleen Vestal Logan won two distinctive awards last year for her book Women’s Wisdom: Pass It On! Logan was honored again internationally as a 2017 Book Excellence Award Finalist in the Personal Growth & Development category. Out of hundreds of entries from around the world, Logan’s book was selected for its high-quality writing, design and marketing appeal.
The goal of Women’s Wisdom: Pass It On! is to encourage intergenerational discussions to acknowledge, nurture, and share women’s wisdom at every age and stage of life.
Her 2016 awards for Women’s Wisdom included beating out 80 percent of her fellow 1,500 entrants to be named an International Book Award Finalist in the self-help/motivational category, and a bronze award from the National Mature Media organization that honored the best marketing, communications, educational materials and programs for older adults.
Logan has become a prolific writer of Women’s Wisdom website blogs that can be found at WomensWisdomPassItOn.com. The ideas for these women-related blogs come from her everyday life and experiences…whatever strikes her fancy. She has written on topics such as Wise Women Keep Learning, Balance in Life Is Elusive, Getting Over Being Shy, Overcoming Obstacles in Life, Resolutions, Deadlines and Priorities, Labels Limit People, Positive Power of Networking, Time Is Life, Civility, Dealing with Loss, and Living Fully Every Day.
A former U.S. Navy officer now residing in Gulf Breeze, Logan is a frequent speaker for women’s groups throughout the southeast. Her many conversations with women have led to articles she writes for the online newsletter of the Transition Network, a national organization for women over 50.
She also co-authored Second Blooming for Women: Growing a Life that Matters After Fifty with E.L. (Betsy) Smith, Ph.D. Published by Second Blooming Books, a Wyatt Mackenzie Imprint, Women’s Wisdom: Pass It On! is available at bookstores and online, and as an eBook.
