Powerful Inspirations: Eight Lessons That Will Change Your Life by Kathy Ireland is a book whose message is as big as its heart. Kathy shares eight lessons that helped her through her own life. As powerful and inspirational as the lessons are, Kathy is the first to admit that they work not because she wrote them down but because they come from God. This is the crux that makes Powerful Inspirations so special. I received a copy of the book from a friend and was pleasantly surprised by its easy read. I had always known Kathy Ireland as a model but had no idea she was an individual of such personal and spiritual substance. As soon as I finished the book I made up my mind to buy copies for each of my daughters. It's truly refreshing to learn about a person whose success has been gained by faith, values and ethics. Kathy dedicates each chapter to one powerful inspiration or lesson and relates each one with such descriptive care and attention that we can not help but be drawn into the narrative. Kathy's own experiences, detailed throughout the book, help us not only get to know Kathy but also identify areas in our own lives for personal application. A running theme throughout, is that both faith and life are journeys. The lessons outlined in this book will help inspire and motivate you as you face your own journeys. I highly recommend this simple yet profound book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have read so many books and not found one that was such an inspiration like this book.

It was a little too shallow and simple. Felt like I was reading something that had been written by a 12 year old. I didn't gain any insight really. Pretty much everything she had to say was common knowledge. Was disappointing - expected more.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I just finished Kathy's book after a friend suggested that I read it. I am very impressed with the book content, and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I am a hard working single mom trying to make the right decisions for myself and my young son. Kathy's advice was very motivational, and written in a simple to read style that I found extremely appealing. I think we can all take some time out of our very busy lives to think about some of life's simple truths -- and I believe Kathy touches on them all in this book. I will be recommending this book to my friends, and will look forward to another book from Kathy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

does the world really need another self-help book? The answer is YES! Where Tony Robbins leaves off, Kathy Ireland begins, as she admonishes us to embrace spiritual principles and let God do the work, rather than force results. I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is a powerful easy read that can change your life! I recently had the privilege of interviewing Kathy for my syndicated Christian radio show and was blown away by her sharing. The main lesson that sticks with me from the book is 'Seize The Day.' After reading this book, I found that Kathy Ireland is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.Was this review helpful?
