Item description for The Yada Yada Prayer Group Series #1 (Yada Yada Prayer Group #1) 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.
What do an ex-con, a former drug addict, a real estate broker, a college student, and a married mother of two have in common?
Nothing, or so I thought. Who would have imagined that God would make a prayer group as mismatched as ours the closest of friends? I almost didn't even go to the Chicago Women's Conference--after all, being thrown together with five hundred strangers wasn't exactly my "comfort zone." But something happened that weekend to make us realize we had to hang together, and the "Yada Yada Prayer Group" was born When I faced the biggest crisis of my life, God used my newfound Sisters to show me what it means to be just a sinner saved by grace.

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Yada Yada Prayer Group Series #1?
Fantastic read... Jul 11, 2008
I happened upon this first novel of the Yada Yada series at a local Christian book store, took a chance, and bought it. I became totally engrossed in the characters and their lives-that is, once I got all the characters straight because there are quite a few. I found Jackson's book inspirational, thought-provoking, entertaining, timely and true to the Chicago suburb in which it is set. It is a story of life- in terms of the joys, laughters, sorrows, bewilderment we sometimes face in this world. More importantly, it is a story that inspires the reader as to the possibilities of obtaining redemption from even the most difficult of circumstances, and the ability to experience joy and laughter in spite of these circumstances. What a great book for any Christian (or for that matter, non-Christian) woman to read. It also offers hope and inspiration as to what the world can be if we only open our hearts a little wider...I gave it 4 stars because the characters were only begining to develop in the first novel. The subsequent novels are even better. So far, I'm wrapping up Book 3 and can't wait to start Book 4.
Love Yada Yada! May 27, 2008
A friend that I was going on a women's retreat with mentioned that she was reading this book and highly recommended it. I'm so glad she did because I really enjoyed reading about the 12 ladies from different background who came together to form the Yada Yada Prayer group. I've ordered the whole set and am in the middle of the 4th out of 7 books. Even though it's fiction it has helped how I praise God and pray now. I highly recommend it, too!
