“I thank God for Valerie J. Lewis Coleman who unselfishly released The Forbidden Secrets of the Goody Box — audible whispers of the Holy Spirit. Golden nuggets (truths) of relationship counseling, neatly sandwiched between candid conversations only shared with friends, offer a healing balm for persons hiding behind broken hearts and shattered dreams. I once was blind, but now I see… I once was trapped, but now I’m free.” -Andrea Attaway-Young, author of The Secret Treasure | AYoungDreamer.com

“Normally, I avidly read non-fiction, but The Forbidden Secrets of the Goody Box was not fiction for me. I started reading the book on the bus on my way home from the Girl Get It Together conference and almost missed my stop. I could not blink or lift my head up to see where I was. I did not care because the book was captivating. I could relate to each character. I saw myself, friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, fellow bus passengers you name it. There must be more. I could not put it down. I wanted more. For me, The Forbidden Secrets of the Goody Box goes beyond the relationships between men and women as sexual beings. I feel that I can use the lessons from this book in interpersonal relationships across the board. I see this book as an excellent teaching tool on how humans deal with one another period. I love how the author teaches life lessons without preaching and without being judgmental. I love how she presents her case without shoving it down the reader’s throat. I like how she dealt with the sensitive matter of sex without being obscene or explicit, thus respecting and expanding her audience. Valerie J. Lewis Coleman, we are ready for more.” -Nozipo G.
“First, let me say thank you for reminding me to keep the box “closed” – LOL. Second, let me thank you for the writing. I must admit I was not sure what to expect, although the snippet was an excellent preview. I, at first, believed that it was to be more informational – somewhat like Harvey’s Act….Think... But the way that the characters were woven was exemplary and the way it ended! That explains my delay in responding after finishing…I was not speaking to you, my feelings were hurt! When is the next book coming out? I have to know what happens… Let me know! I want my preview copy!
Lessons learned upon completion: ANY relationship takes time and nurturing for it to grow in a HEALTHY manner. This includes my relationship with God, self and others! I can’t leave the opportunity for someone else to do the ‘work’ for me and me to expect the benefits of that work. Excellent work! Thank you!” -April K.
“I finished the book…Woo hoo! I couldn’t put it down. EXCELLENT JOB!! I’M A LOVER OF THIS BOOK!!! You touched on many relationship situations females have experienced. I know this will be a best seller and more importantly, it will help the ladies. The advice will open the eyes of women on how important it is to ‘lock that box’ and get a better understanding of men. At times, I hollered out laughing and people looked at me like I was crazy. I love when a book has me so into it that I forget my surroundings. Once again, GREAT JOB! I already recommended The Goody Box Book and will be passing it on to my nieces to read. They need to understand at a young age to ‘lock that box!!’” -Miracle T.
“Val, I so enjoyed The Goody Box Book. You did an awesome job. I could hardly put it down. I felt empowered and encouraged. Sherry showed me confidence as she held her ground. Debra’s character showed me that you don’t have to give up all of you. I learned from Rachel that communication is key and if problems go unaddressed, temptation can come. I was enlightened by the different types of men. I can’t wait to read The Goody Box Book sequel. Keep up the good work!” -LaToya M.
