9780062272959: The Wealth of My Mother's Wisdom: The Lessons That Made My Life Rich

Terrence Jenkins—better known as Terrence J—has hosted gigs on E! News and BET's 106 & Park, and starred in some of Hollywood's hottest movies. It's a life he could have only imagined growing up in Queens, born to a seventeen-year-old mother. But it was the lessons he learned from his mother, Lisa, that helped make him a man—lessons about sacrifice, courage, loyalty, dreams, and perseverance. Lisa pushed Terrence to succeed from an early age, led by example, and always put her son first—even if it meant leaving New York, the only home they'd ever known, in search of a safer environment for him. Her drive eventually became Terrence's drive.

Inspirational, funny, and down-to-earth, with stories and advice straight from Terrence J and his mom, as well as some of his famous friends, including Kevin Hart, Ludacris, T.I., Trey Songz, and Laz Alonso, The Wealth of My Mother's Wisdom offers a positive, powerful message: with a strong family bond, the possibilities are endless.
