Read Reviews by My Readers
5 out of 5 stars Absolutely Life Changing! "In this book Dr. Claude offers an insightful look into the Biblical concepts of confession and meditation. As modern day believers many of us have become tricked by the enemy into believing that our words don't matter as if the things we say have no consequence. But Dr. Claude shows us by use of his testimony and the examination of the scriptures that as in the words of Jesus "you will have whatsoever you say." So if you don't like the things you have you better change what you are saying. This book is filled with insight and scriptural references making it a perfect tool for small group studies or book reviews that desire to grow in their faith! I was so impressed I bought copies for my entire congregation!"
"This book was so motivating and inspiring. Just what I needed to regain focus and organize my thoughts into tangible goals. Highly recommend this book to anyone who has dreams and aspirations but cannot find a starting point. This will be the #1 gift to all of my family and friends for birthdays and Christmas this year!! Thanks Dr. Claude!!!!"
"This book is a "must-read" for women and men alike! Dr. Claude offers insight that will help readers escape the cycle of unhealthy relationships, and break the generational curses that lie at their roots. He provides Biblical tools that will help guide their decisions and shape their thinking, in an effort to find their way to true wholeness. It would make an excellent resource for any women's and men's ministries or conferences, and teen or college groups." Pastor and Author My Church.

"Just when I thought I couldn't read another motivational book, Do you see what I'm saying was just the inspiration I needed. In the book, the author Japheth L. Claude, PhD took me on a thought-provoking journey which helped me understand the process of getting to my destiny. The book is filled with "food for thoughts" specialized quotes, which express the importance of speaking it, writing it, and working it! According to the author our life follows certain patterns: Dream - Struggle- Victory. One of the most profound things that I took away from reading this great book was that "It's not who you are that will hold you back, it's who you think you're not that will hold you back." As a result of reading this book, I've come to the realization that I was the only person holding me back. Let me tell you, I re-wrote my story! I'm soooo thankful for The Claude Family Philosophy...Get the book, and you'll see what I'm saying!!!"
"Both straight forward and thought provoking, Silly Women, Simpleminded Men, and Good Girls With Bad Names, provides insight and guidance to men and women alike, who are at various stages in their life journey. Throughout the book, I found myself identifying with many examples of which I was not always proud of. At times, I would pause my reading in order to look inward and self-examine. Through Dr. Claude’s biblical, modern-day, and personal accounts, you are left being inspired to continue seeking God’s purpose for your life."
"Skillfully woven in the paragraphs and sentences are life experiences and God-given wisdom that is certain to enrich your life. Dr. Claude zeroes in on the sickness, not the symptoms that plague many of us spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Whether you feel secure in a happy and healthy marriage or heartbroken from a devastating breakup, this book is for you. Whether you are single and satisfied or involved and disgruntled, the words shared by this author will impact you. Without a doubt, I know my life has been changed forever."
