Item description for The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Tough (Yada Yada Prayer Group #4) by Neta Jackson...
Overview Ruth and Ben are caught up in an unplanned pregnancy--in their 50s. Chanda is deluded by the glitter of her lottery dream come true. Florida wants to move her family, hoping to leave trouble behind. Avis is torn between honoring her new husband and helping her abused adult daughter.
The Yada Yadas got tight in the past year, but they're about to learn the real meaning of togetherness.
We'd done it: we'd taken a mismatched, diverse group of women and cobbled together a prayer group that really worked for "all "of us. Now that spring was here, we were celebrating our one-year anniversary--"and "a wedding, an early parole, and two baptisms in the lake Everything was feeling pretty great.
But it's when we're in our comfort zone that we're most likely to let our guard down. Without warning, lots of little things seemed to become big problems. With a white supremacy hate group targeting a local university, our very diversity almost became a liability. It took a vicious attack on Nony's husband to make us see that we had to get tough--and fight back together.
Community Description The Yada Yadas have grown close in the past year, but they're about to learn the real meaning of togetherness.
With a wedding, an early parole, and two baptisms in the lake, everything is feeling pretty great. But without warning, lots of little things become big problems. When a white supremacy hate group targets a local university, the group's own diversity almost becomes a liability. A vicious attack on Noni's husband forces the Yadas to get tough-and fight back together.

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.
