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 with her anyway. Avis is torn between honoring her new husband and helping her abused adult daughter, who keeps running home to Mama.
If there's an upside, it's that all this trouble reveals the subtle lies the Yadas believe about God, themselves, each other, and life.

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.
Neta Jackson currently resides in Chicago, in the state of Illinois.

Super!!!!! Nov 2, 2009
I love this series!!! This author is very captivating and really gets you engaged with the characters. I have recently gone through some tough times with illness in my family and this is series is exactly what I needed. It shows real people have real problems, but all the people have faith and know scripture from the bible, but on many different levels.
The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Down, Book 2 May 29, 2009
The book continues to encourage me in my Christian walk as a Prayer warrior. Our Woman's Board for Precious Moments Women's Ministry at our church has grown in prayer and fellowship through this entire series of the Yada Yada Prayer Group series. Wonderful series for Christians.
The Yada Yada Prayer Group Sep 10, 2008
This series is one of the most refreshing and inspirational group of books I have ever read. I have completed all 7 and could easily read them again. The characters are real people who have a strong faith in God and depend on each other for human support and accountability. YOu'll laugh, cry and rejoice.
You will find yourself Jul 29, 2008
This book was great (the entire series is great). As you read this, you most definitely will identify with one of the characters. The book flows easily and deals with every day typical situations that Christians are faced with. It was a hard book to put down!!
Not as good as the first book Jul 21, 2008
I loved the first book Yadayada Prayer Group, so I immediately ordered this audiobook. The reader Barbara Rosenblat is the only thing that kept my interest in this book. But even with her voices, I found the book boring. Will not read any other books in this series.
