This book is the result of what I saw and heard during the many years in the Philippines as I prepared to immigrate and the years since I came to America. It is a compilation of stories from myself and others who came to the United States and the lessons we learned along the way. My mission is to give hope, comfort, and support for future immigrant families as they face the challenges of immigrating. What We Know For Sure features Filipino U.S. Embassy employees who provided long, faithful, and valuable service to the United States Government. In this book, they share the process of coming to America and the truth behind the hard work and sacrifices it takes to stay. It was written for potential immigrants and immigrants, no matter what stage of the process they are in. These stories are here to comfort, inspire, educate, and guide any immigrant throughout his or her journey to the land of the free. I recently fulfilled my "Mission Africa" and was inspired to create another mission called "Mission Philippines" which was eventually the impetus for this first book.
From the man who catapulted the Covenant with Black America to number one on the New York Times bestseller list comes a searing memoir of poverty, ambition, pain and atonment. Tavis Smiley grew up in a family of thirteen in rural Indian, where money was scarce and the sight of other black faces even scarcer. Always an outsider because of his race, economic background, and Pentecostal religious beliefs, he was sustained by his family’s love. But one day his world was shattered when his father brutally beat him, sending him to the hospital and then into foster care for a period of time. In What I Know for Sure, Smiley recounts how he overcame his painful history and became one of America’s most popular media figures.

Bastard Out of Carolina, nominated for the 1992 National Book Award for fiction, introduced Dorothy Allison as one of the most passionate and gifted writers of her generation. Now, in Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, she takes a probing look at her family's history to give us a lyrical, complex memoir that explores how the gossip of one generation can become legends for the next. Illustrated with photographs from the author's personal collection, Two or Three Things I Know for Sure tells the story of the Gibson women -- sisters, cousins, daughters, and aunts -- and the men who loved them, often abused them, and, nonetheless, shared their destinies. With luminous clarity, Allison explores how desire surprises and what power feels like to a young girl as she confronts abuse. As always, Dorothy Allison is provocative, confrontational, and brutally honest. Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, steeped in the hard-won wisdom of experience, expresses the strength of her unique vision with beauty and eloquence.
Powerful skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you break free from the fear of uncertainty and put a stop to compulsive checking and reassurance seeking. “How do I know I made the right decision?” “What if I’m wrong?” “I need to know for sure.” Do you have thoughts like these—thoughts that cause you to second-guess yourself, and lead to anxiety, stress, and worry? Do you find yourself repeatedly checking your email for no reason, asking others for their opinions about something again and again, or lying awake at night overanalyzing and planning ahead in an attempt to feel less anxious? If so, you probably have a problem with compulsive reassurance seeking. The good news is that you can break free from this “reassurance trap”—this book will show you how. In this unique guide, you’ll find proven-effective tips and tools using CBT to help you tolerate uncertainty, face specific worrying scenarios, and gradually reduce the compulsion to incessantly seek reassurance. Most importantly, you’ll learn to deal with those pesky “doubt attacks” and trust your own judgment. Asking for reassurance is a self-reinforcing behavior—if you do it, you’re less likely to handle stressful situations without needing further reassurance. And so the cycle continues. The CBT skills in this book will help you break this exhausting and painful pattern, so you can build self-confidence and improve your life.
Going through the motions will never deliver amazing and transformational results, in your business, your career, nor your spiritual life. To achieve the legal and God-given right to life, freedom and happiness, every assumption, every belief, every habit, and every tradition that has become your experience must be challenged. Our assumptions about the purpose of people and relationships in our lives, our beliefs about who we are and who God is, our habits and routines in the daily navigation of our experience, and the traditions of worship, church, and spirituality should be appraised to ensure they are potent, powerful, and purposeful in bringing the happiness, health and wealth we innately desire. So what are these smooth stones? These stones are the foundation of our relationship with God. They are the firm truths about God, others, and ourselves we’ve tested and know for sure. We use them as tools to learn, advance, and propel us to the happiness, health, and prosperity we were created to inherit and experience as children of God. Like David, we use these stones as weapons, against our personal Goliaths; giant challenges, threats and illusions of lack, sickness, and distress whether imposed by others or ourselves. These stones are also reminders of how we’ve grown and matured from the lessons we’ve learned through our experiences. We lay these stones down and walk on them on this road of salvation and success. In his inaugural book, Five Smooth Stones: What I Know About God for Sure, Larry shares his journey from religious complacency to spiritual empowerment. Through metaphysical interpretation of scripture, valuable spiritual educational insights, and candid storytelling, this first-time author leads us through his journey to spiritual accountability and empowerment. For the believer and non-believer as well, this provocative essay will compel you to start, resume, or refocus your relationship with God.
