From Thanksgiving and Christmas to rolling in the New Year, the Yada Yadas are "decked out" to celebrate the holidays
Turkey dinners, tree trimming, and decking the halls--it's that time of year again And I, Jodi Baxter, can't wait to celebrate. My kids are coming home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and then all of us Yadas are getting decked out for a big New Year's party.

A perplexing encounter with a former student, a crime that literally knocks me off my feet, a hurry-up wedding, and a child who will forever change our family...it's times like these that I really need my prayer sisters.

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.

Excellent as always Nov 10, 2008
As usual this continuation of the Yada Yada Prayer Grouop Series is an enjoyable, easy read that helps me to grow spiritually!
Wow! You will cry, you will laugh, your soul will be renewed! Oct 24, 2008
If you've not read the Yada Yada series; get ready for a roller coaster of emotions. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will no doubt question your self in many ways! You will find yourself drawing closer to God and identifying with many of the characters in these books! This author has a gift for taking many issues in life and bringing a spiritual reaction and solution to them. I've never read anything like this series before and am grateful for it. This is a fiction series - and not any kind of "self-help" or spiritual guidance or devotional book, but you will find much of that in this book, through the characters and situations they face. It is a wonderful series.
Best series you will ever read Sep 16, 2008
I could not read these fast enough. Makes you want to join their group whether you are a Christian or not!!
Just Gotta Love 'Em Aug 21, 2008
When I first started reading this book, I fanned the pages in front of me, not really wanting to read the last installment of the Yada Yada prayer group. I didn't want to see the series end. Like so many fans of this series, my prayer life changed right along with Jodi's.
I followed Jodi from book one when she wondered what if anything could she get from praying with women so different from herself to now wondering, in book seven, what would she do without them.
So often we get used to the spiritual crutches that prop us up in difficult times. We usually struggle when the time comes to let the crutches go and to fully rely on God. Jodi sees changes in the Yada Yada group and in her family life. Instead of resisting the change by holding on to her friends and family, Jodi learns to celebrate what God has done and is about to do in all their lives. Boy, Jodi has spiritually matured over the course of these books.
I thought this book nicely concluded the Yada Yada series. I sooo look forward to Yada Yada House, the new series. I understand that some of my old Yada Yada favorites will make appearances in the book. That's good, because I miss them already!
I'm not wishing my life away, but December can't arrive too soon!

This book is funny,soul searching and makes you want to read the whole series. Start with the first book and you will easily identify with one of the women. Jodie is mine. This series helps you to take a good hard look at you and your life. GREAT READING !!!
