Focusing her message from Powerful Inspirations: Eight Lessons That Will Change Your Life, former supermodel, fashion CEO, mother of three, and devout Christian Ireland provides perky, practical advice for stressed mothers, taking a thematic approach that covers topics including family finances, child safety, and living faithfully. A soothing introduction to each topic is followed by her recommendations in an advice-column format; chapters conclude with simple but useful checklists. The specificity of the questions and answers sometimes limits the usefulness of the guidance, unfortunately. Inadequate notes and attributions for generalizations are somewhat offset by a few clearly marked sections of expert advice. Although the book's evangelical focus and many promotions for Ireland's company limit its audience, there are so few Scripture-based parenting guides on stress reduction that this one deserves a recommendation for church, school, and public library parenting collections.
