A robbery, a lynching, and a mourning mother shake up the Yada Yadas.
I had never felt so violated! The Yada Yada Prayer Group was "gettin' down" with God in prayer and praise one night when a heroin-crazed woman barged into my house, demanded our valuables, and threatened us with a 10-inch knife--a knife that drew blood.
We wondered if we'd ever get back to normal after this terrifying experience. I assumed we would. After all, we'd started praying together at the Chicago Women's Conference last spring, and we'd been through a lot already as spiritual sisters. This was just one more hurdle to conquer, right?
But then a well-meaning gesture suddenly incited a backlash of anger in the group, forcing us to confront generations of racial division, pain, and distrust--and stretching our friendship to the limit. And a shocking confrontation in my third-grade classroom forced me to face my own accountability and learn what true forgiveness really is.

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 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.
AMAZING!!! May 27, 2008
Ok, so a friend turned me on to the Neta Jackson series of "Yada Yada" and I was hooked from day one!!! If you thought Book 1 was was a page turner and the message was great... wait till you get a hold of this book!!! When I finished reading the book I texted my friend and said... "Simply Amazing"!!! The message that it brings, the story line, the power of the gospel simply AMAZING... A MUST READ!!! BE BLESSED!!!
Treat Yourself!! Mar 25, 2008
My niece, Raecyne, recommended this book series. I enjoy the Yada Yada Prayer Group series so very much. Neta expertly crafts her characters so that you almost instinctively assign voices and faces to these characters. You feel as though you know these characters; you go to church with these ladies, they are in your choir or your small group. I told my niece that I am already lamenting my completion of the series. It will be like the feeling of loneliness you experience when you have to leave your church family and move to another location. You know you will miss these people who have meant so much to your life and your spiritual growth. Sounds like an extreme view of characters in a book? I challenge you to start reading the series. You will be delighted. You will also be challenged in your spiritual walk as the main character Jodi Baxter is challenged and grows spiritually. Treat yourself to the ladies of the Yada Yada Prayer Group!
