Item description for The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Caught (Yada Yada Prayer Group #5) by Neta Jackson...
Overview "The Yada Yada girls get caught in the lies we all tend to believe about ourselves, God, each other, and life"--Provided by publisher.
For the Yada Yadas, gettin' caught up in troubles isn't the problem; it's how to get free.
Only weeks ago, we Yadas toughened our prayer knees when one of our own was the victim of a vicious racial attack. Now it seems each household is being thrown into even bigger and badder circumstances. It especially worries me, Jodi Baxter, because I'm a fixer by nature, and the prayer list is getting out of control . . .
Ruth and Ben are caught up in an unplanned pregnancy--in their fifties Chanda is deluded by the glitter of her lottery dream come true. Florida wants to move her family, hoping to leave trouble behind, but it looks like it may catch up to her anyway. And I'm finding that even good things like prayer group can consume me in no time flat.
If there is an upside, it's that all this trouble is revealing the subtle lies we Yadas believe about God, ourselves, each other, and life. Maybe our best hope is to catch on to what God's doing--and catch on quick --before the enemy can take any prisoners. That'd be a freedom worth celebrating. And celebrating is what my spiritual sisters and I do best.

More About Neta Jackson
As a husband/wife writing team, Dave and Neta Jackson are enthusiastic about books, kids, walking with God, gospel music, and each other! Together we are the authors or coauthors of over 120 books. In addition to writing several books about Christian community, we have been privileged to coauthor numerous books with expert resource people on a variety of topics from racial reconciliation to medical ethics to ministry to kids in gangs.
But over the years we have especially enjoyed writing for children and young people! This includes our award-winning TRAILBLAZER series, historical fiction about great Christian heroes and heroines for young people ages 8-12, and the four-volume HERO TALES: A Family Treasury of True Stories from the Lives of Great Christians, and the companion book, Heroes in Black History.
Somewhere along the way, our own children grew up! Son Julian is Director of Experience Design for the Alder Planetarium in Chicago where he “provides the experience of exploring space” for visitors. He has two sons, Liam Isaac and Elijah David. Daughter Rachel graduated from Eastern Mennonite University and after working in the field of rape-crisis prevention went on to earn a Masters Degree in counseling from the University of Illinois. She is now a counselor at “Uni High School” in Champaign, Illinois. She is the loving mother of Havah Noelle (our first grandchild!) and Noah Zion, our youngest grandchild. The Jackson family also includes a Cambodian foster daughter, Samen Sang, who has four children.
We live in Evanston, Illinois, where for twenty-seven years we were part of Reba Place Church, a Christian church community. We are now members of a multi-racial congregation in the Chicago area.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Caught?
Christian Fiction, Prayer Life, ordinary women of multiracial backgrounds. Sep 13, 2008
Each book of the Yada Yada series follows the lives of women I would like to know as my friends. I feel involved in their everyday life as well as the big decisions that are part of Christian living in every city. All my friends that are reading this series enjoy the books also. We named our local prayer group The Yadah prayer breakfast.

The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Caught Aug 12, 2008
This is a really good book. It puts you in the right mind spiritually about how to continue to trust God even when things don't seem to go our way AT ALL! I also like the scripture references because they give you ammuniton to use in times of spiritual trouble.
Good Christian Reading Jun 30, 2008
This series really helped me through a tough time. Reading how these women handled their everyday and not so everday problems ministered to me as I went through a serious illness with my husband. The women are down to earth and practical. Recommend for anyone.
