Some praises for False Labels book 1
Labels are needed to help us know what a particular thing is and that can be good, however when labels are attached to people to keep them from fulfilling their purpose that is when they become false. If you are feeling empty, hopeless, and lacking purpose read this wonderful book “False Labels: Don’t Let People Label You” .You will not only be inspired, but you may become an inspiration to someone. Nothing is impossible for God.

Can you imagine that God made you as unique as you are for His glorification? That is the fundamental preoccupation in Marie Claire Kuja’s False Labels. The book draws inspiration from the personal experiences of number of youths across the world who have realized that some of the labels given to them by society do not hinder them from achieving whatever goals they set for themselves.
Presented through narratives by those youths who each tell their stories, and reinforced with biblical allusions and quotations, as well as a prayer at the end of each story, the reader is held spellbound by the wonderful ideas and fascinating experiences. The reader is moved with pity or encouragement, as the case may be, when they identify with some of those generalized or specific experiences-lived not only by those who tell the stories but which may be a global reality. The book teaches one through the various stories to shun all forms of intimidation and frustration and to realize that one can transform stumbling blocks into stepping stones and to change all scars into stars. The most glaring example is the defeat of Goliath by David in the most amazing circumstances and against the background of all odds.
This book is a source of psychological empowerment for all oppressed people in general and those who suffer various forms of intimidation. This book will liberate millions of people across the world to recognize how unique they are as God’s creation and to celebrate this uniqueness everywhere, every time.

Con-temporarily, I find the book serving as an inspirational document for the youth of today (socially, spiritually and mentally).It’s contents, if read in it’s entirety, would also provide encouragements as well as linkage to God for readers who might be caught in between problems and know not who to turn to for refuge. I can fore-see the book rising to becoming one of the “Best selling” Inspirational authored books and would without reservation, recommend it for the future readings of Christian Youth Students all over the world.

Reviews for book 2
This book consists of 13 uplifting stories that depict different individuals’ struggles to overcome adversities that they have encountered throughout their lives. The author strives to give the reader hope in overcoming obstacles that are put in their way by other people through bullying and verbally putting another person down. Also, the author strives to show that it is possible to overcome things such as poverty, racial stigmas and antiquated cultural beliefs that hold us back. Do not be afraid to have dreams and to do all you can to accomplish those dreams.
Ms. Kuja has done it again! She has gone right to the source in enlisting ex-bullies to share their stories regarding what led them to their wrong choice of becoming bullies. In her graceful, non-judgmental, loving way Ms. Kuja explores and confronts the past, but also share hope by introducing the transformational power of God presence in our lives.” She helps us to see that labels are indeed false when they kill dreams but God words can restore us to wholeness.

This book is really good and it is very easy read.
I strongly recommend it to both parents and children. I encourage them to purchase this book and use as a tool to teach their children that there is more to them than just bullying. Bullying is a very serious issue that has a prevalent impact in our society today. Bullying is not an issue that we should take lightly because it does not only damage the self esteem of it victims but cause the death of lots of teens who don’t know any better. This book is packed with lessons that will empower and inspire anyone to run their own race and celebrate life to the fullest.

False Labels the sequel: This book interviews ex-bullies and the victims of bullying and false labels. It is very interesting to see how some of the victims used their experiences to empower and uplift not only their lives but others. Everyone young and old should read this book.It is an inspiration to living an authentic life

We grow into adulthood so often without the skills to deal with the trauma and negativity the world throws at us, especially when it comes to self esteem. I found the writing and journaling exercises in this book to be liberating, therapeutic and helpful in dealing with some personal challenges we face in our lives. This book is enough to tackle any unresolved issues and to move one forward in their life. This is a very practical book and offers tools for everyone young and old on how to learn how to stop trying to fit in but to use their God given talents and gifts to do things that will make them stand out.. After my kid read it, we talked about it and found this book really helps. Maureen brooks,VA,U.S.A
A friend of mine mailed this book to me from the United States. At first I was very reluctant to read it because I was at a point where I didn’t think any advice was enough to stop me from taking my life.
After a few days, my sister entered my room and was attracted by the very beautiful book cover. Then she picked it up and never kept it down. She got so glued to the book that she called in from her job in order to finish it. Then I get so curious and wanted my gift [book] back which was not happening because she had to be finished with it first. I finally had the opportunity to read this book .The writer is a God’s sent. I did not have to kill myself again. She writes like an angel yet somehow transcends words and communicates directly to the reader’s heart. This is a classic, masterpiece, yet it is so honest that each time you read it, it speaks right into your heart. We see so often now how people are taking their lives because of bullies. This book comes with a fresh, new voice as the author emphasizes a sense of ownership in the reader for his/her own happiness. Her one on one interview with ex-bullies is a big eye opener as to why people bully,— make you feel worthless. She talks about the importance of knowing who you are and whose you belong too and also to use our God given talents and gifts to making the world a better place .She reminds us all of the golden rule which is doing unto others what we what done unto us.

Reviews about the series/book 3.
Dr. Lum Esther calls her “an inspirational powerhouse whose brilliance shines through her dynamic books and presentations. Kindness, empathy and forgiveness are the greatest tools to give anyone, young or old before sending them-off for school or work. She discussed these principles in the most amazing manner. A must read for all”.
Miss Terry McCarthy says “Marie-claire is one of the best things coming to Africa. I applaud her courage for sharing her experiences to help others”.
Jan McCray of Bethany Baptist church Brooklyn New York says, “Her presentation remains the hot topic here at Bethany”. Her book series is a great toolbox full of strategies to fend off feeling victimized at school, work or anywhere.

says, “Marie-claire is a very blessed woman and will go places. She is an inspiration to millions. I hope and pray that African women both young and old will be inspired by her courage and be able not only to let go of their past, but share their own stories to in turn inspire others. Her book series and her presentations intended to giving Inspiration/Encouragement/Hope & Empowerment to people from all works of life, has already started spreading and I see the next big thing not only for Africa but for the entire world.
Contemporarily, I find the book serving as an inspirational document for the youth of today (socially, spiritually and mentally).It’s contents, if read in its entirety, would also provide encouragements as well as linkage to God for readers who might be caught in the middle. I applaud her brevity.
Etta Graham-Mitchell, MsEd, CRC, Seminarian Student says, ”Do we need another book on how to prevent bullying? You bet we do–and this is the book we need. While rooted in the principle of the Golden Rule, it is eminently readable, practical, and likely to make you successful in creating classrooms and schools where students respect and care about each other instead of bullying. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to eradicate the scourge of ‘mean classrooms’ which too often dominates our educational landscape.”
Mr. Mensa Theo says, “All her books are great but this is the greatest .This thoughtful, thorough staff development resource provides direction for establishing a strong anti-bullying program. The book takes you on a journey through the research and guides you in implementing the strategies discussed. The intervention strategies are very adaptable. She also did a great job of paying more attention to bullies because she believes any problem must be solved by looking at the root cause first. It’s very involving and has lessons for people of all ages. Plus the words to ponder, the refreshing prayers and the rewind at the end of each section make this book a GEM”
