On Saturday, Terrence Jenkins (E! News) and the Disney Dreamers Academy treated 100 single mothers and their children to an amazing brunch complete with a day at the Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. Jenkins was joined by his own mother, Lisa Gonzalez and his co-star Lauren London (Baggage Claim) to also share his memoir, The Wealth of My Mother’s Wisdom: The Lessons That Made My Life Rich, which is available at bookstores everywhere on October 1st. The memoir chronicles Jenkins’ childhood. In it, he talks about being raised by his strong, single mother Lisa and his rise to success amidst adversity and obstacles.
His story serves as a shining example that anything is possible with determination and preparation. 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 to success. Jenkins offers a positive, powerful message: with a strong family bond, the possibilities are endless.
