"It's amazing how much my mom did on my behalf. As a seventeen-year-old single mom with relatively little support and all the chips stacked against her, she was able to provide an incredible amount of support for me. Her lessons enriched my spirit, my emotions, and my relationship with God."
When Lisa, a seventeen-year-old from Queens, New York, found out she was pregnant, she knew she only had one choice—to keep the child and give him the best life she could. That baby was Terrence Jenkins, better known to the world as Terrence J. From hosting gigs on BET's 106 and Park and E! News to roles in some of Hollywood's biggest movies, Terrence J is living a life he could have only imagined when he was a young boy. But it was the lessons he learned from his mother that helped make him a man—lessons about sacrifice, courage, loyalty, dreams, and perseverance. Through her words and her actions, Lisa showed Terrence the right path.
From an early age Terrence's mother pushed him to succeed and led by example. Most important, she put her son first—even if it meant leaving behind the only life she had ever known in New York City in search of a safer environment for her son, having the drive to go back to school to learn a new skill, or having the courage to start her own business and build it from the ground up. Her drive eventually became Terrence's drive.
Inspirational, funny, current, and down-to-earth, The Wealth of My Mother's Wisdom offers advice for a new generation. With stories, lessons, and advice from one of the top young names in Hollywood, along with input from some of his famous friends like Kevin Hart, Ludacris, T.I., Trey Songz, and Laz Alonso, Terrence J offers a positive, powerful message: with a strong family bond, the possibilities are endless.

Wow- What Wisdom!
This book encourages/inspires anyone who strives to be more than mediocre. If that's you, PLEASE READ!
This book was a much needed read for me. While I'm not a teenage mom;I'm not a mom at all in fact, this helped me to understand the importance of a mothers wisdom. My mother is very much alive but we have a little bit of what's called roll reversal. So most of the wisdoms I've gained was from watching other people's mistakes or learning from my own. Reading this book felt like getting adopted by a wise woman and getting the being its of all her wisdom.
I have great dreams of my own and whole I don't always have the support of a great team in my corner I will carry with me and implement the lessons Terrence learned from his mom to help me achieve my goals and dreams.
