What I Know to Be True is a book, a practice, a way of life.

What if you could retain your sense of self, your sense of equilibrium, even in the face of life’s most difficult and painful lessons? What if you could let go of what others think about you, your actions and your choices, thereby reclaiming your personal power? Instead of being consumed by your problems and emotions, what if you could respond to them with grace and ease?  What if you could connect to your deepest wisdom to feel sage and secure, regardless of circumstance?

"Seldom have I had the delight of reading a self-help/inspirational book that is able to convey its significant strategy so rapidly! Authors Lisa Jacoby and Caroline J. Temple accomplish exactly this in the roughly nine pages following the preface: they demonstrate the effect of these six simple words while presenting a time in their own lives when they needed help in dealing with a crisis. What I Know to Be True works better than a mantra, for the words (when used correctly) are life-affirming while also being (like a mantra) grounding and freeing. ….the words, or formula, can be applied to an unending variety of circumstances, from insomnia and pain to self-esteem, hope and trust. I like the way the book is laid out: as an example to be practiced, so that the reader may keep it at bedside, in the car or even in one’s purse, and open to any page for help in calming, reaffirming, and gaining perspective."      ~ Judge, 22nd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards

"I felt so much like crawling into a shell today that I just sat down on the floor next to my bed. I looked to my left and opened the book, What I Know To Be True, and began reading. I could feel a shift within and I started to relax and feel my way through reading rather than think through it. I then felt the need to just sit quietly which then turned into meditation. I started crying and tears poured out of me - then I felt a calmness. My body no longer felt sick and my energy shifted to a calm, peaceful, loving energy. I stayed within this feeling and noticed when it began to change. When I finally came back into my body, I glanced at the clock and almost an hour had gone by but felt as if it were only five minutes."  NA,CT
