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 (Yada Yada Prayer Group, Book 1)?
This is what christian women should be about. Dec 1, 2008
This book is awesome! I recommend it to not only christian women but women in general who need an idea about what friendship is all about. The fact that women of various religion and race can form a relationship that doesn't tear down but lifts up is awesome. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

yada yada blah blah blah... May 30, 2008
One of my best friends gave me this book, and she usually has great suggestions, so I was excited to read it. However, even a couple chapters in, I was ready to slap Jodi, and I only got more annoyed as the story went on. She was the most shallow, jealous, snotty character in any book I've ever read. Sure, all characters have flaws. But Jodi seemed to have every flaw. Any character in the book that Jodi didn't like or made a snide comment about in her head made me like her less and the other person more. By the time I was halfway through the book, I was on everyone's side but Jodi's. And that is not something you want in a main character.
I did enjoy some of the plot, and the camaraderie that the members of the prayer club had together. But I'm certainly not going to be looking for these books in the store. If I can't feel sympathy for the narrator and main character of the story, then as a reader, you've totally lost me.
