strong>Alexandra Stoddard Synopses: In Alexandra Stoddard’s Living Beautiful, Stoddard explains how to bring beauty and joy to a life shared with one’s spouse or lover, family and friends. She shows readers how simple acts of self-nurturing – meditation, long baths, studying art – can help foster self-esteem and inward good health, qualities which will naturally lead to love and respect for others.

In Things Good Mothers Know by Alexandra Stoddard, Stoddard not only celebrates what mothers know – and what we would like them to know – she encourages them to attend to their own happiness in the quest to become better mothers. Raising a good child to become a good person begins with a mother’s own inner transformation. Don’t think if you are a good mother you will automatically be happy, she cautions. Be happy and you will be good at everything that is meaningful and valuable in your life! From giving practical advice, to taking a more philosophical approach, to offering a comforting pat on the back, Stoddard reaches out to mothers with words that will encourage, support, and cheer them on.
