What do an ex-con, a former addict, 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 group as mismatched as ours the closest of friends? I almost didn’t go to the Chicago Women’s Conference—after all, being thrown together with five hundred strangers wasn’t exactly my “comfort zone.” When I was assigned to a prayer group of twelve women at the conference, I wasn’t sure what to think. There was Flo, an outspoken ex-drug addict; Ruth, a Messianic Jew who could smother-mother you to death; and Yo-Yo, an ex-con who wasn’t even a Christian! Not to mention women from Jamaica, Honduras, South Africa—practically a mini-United Nations. We certainly didn’t have much in common. But something happened that weekend to make us realize we had to hang together. So the “Yada Yada Prayer Group” decided to keep praying for each other via e-mail, and when our personal struggles got too intense for cyberspace, we decided to meet together on Sunday nights. Talk about a rock tumbler!—knocking off each other’s rough edges, learning to laugh and cry along the way. But when I faced the biggest crisis of my life, God used my newfound girlfriends to help teach me—Jodi Baxter, longtime Christian “good girl”—what it means to be just a sinner saved by grace.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teesa | 1/31/2014

    " I love this series, it moves me in ways I didn't expect. Real women dealing with everyday struggles. It lets me in on a world I wouldn't ordinary be exposed to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 1/29/2014

    " 3rd book in series - I read out of order (oops) - Stu moving in upstairs from Jodi and Becky getting out of jail "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 1/25/2014

    " It was ok. I enjoyed it, but I didn't love it. I probably won't read any more of this author but I didn't regret reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 1/23/2014

    " I liked this Yada Yada book better than the previous two but I think it is because the story is developing more with each book so it is more interesting. I'm ready to read the next book in the series to see what comes next for the Yada Yada Sisters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/23/2014

    " On audio. These books are perfect for in the car because I don't have to concentrate too hard to follow the plot! Another good one, you could see everything that was coming. Entertaining!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathy | 1/17/2014

    " I enjoyed the first two but got bored with the bickering in this one. I did appreciate the bible verses and lessons learned though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Berman | 1/11/2014

    " I had a really hard time finishing this book. The author REALLY likes wordy analogies that slow the reader down. I'll finish the series, of course, but only because I want to know what happens in the story, not because I like the author's writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty Tomlinson | 12/18/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 11/24/2013

    " I was concerned that the yada themes would get old, but it hasn't happened in this one! The women continue to be challenged to live out their faith in the real world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Krueger | 11/17/2013

    " This book was great! A little slow in the middle, but it just keeps me reading and can't wait to grab book 4 that was already waiting in my library book basket! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 10/30/2013

    " I love this series. I can totally relate to the characters and even though it is fiction, I find myself adapting to change in my life similar to these characters. I have found a new favorite author in Neta Jackson. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lora White | 7/27/2013

    " This is a new series that some ladies from my church have gotten me hooked on. Obviously, Christian related, quick and excellent reads. One of the ladies I can relate to very much as she is so hard on herself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 7/27/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 8/30/2012

    " This group of christian women, and their families, really make you want to live a better life. I loved the part where the main character actually prays for each one of her students individually. We always talk and hear of doing this but she actually does it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda | 4/20/2012

    " Even more compelling than the previous two books. We learn more about Avis, YoYo and also Stu. I don't want to spoil the suprises in store but look for a wedding, a baptism or too involved in the book's theme of forgiveness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodie | 3/8/2012

    " This entire series is great in my opinion. Uplifting and spiritual in a way that I can relate to. "

    " Didnt realize this was part of a series. I hope it is ok to jump into the middle of the series and still be able to catch up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 3/26/2010

    " The theme of this book I think is Redemption. There is also a theme of Refreshing - that God makes our lives Refreshing.

    I enjoy the characters in this series. The reading is flowing and enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Molli | 2/4/2010

    " These include her dislike for prayer group member Stu, her struggle to forgive the woman who invaded her house, and the fallout from her car accident. There are also several celebrations that keep the story from being a downer.

About the Author
Author Neta Jackson

Neta Jackson and her husband Dave have won numerous awards for the books they have written together. Born in Winchester, Kentucky in 1944, Neta Jackson is the daughter of a Christian-school principal father and a school librarian mother. Her childhood took her from Boston, Massachusetts, to Longview, Texas, to Seattle, Washington. She barely noticed because she always had her nose in a book—when she wasn’t drawing pictures of horses. Her love of perfectly placed words never wavered. As a high school senior, she took the winnings from a Scholastic Magazine First Place Award for story writing and bought a typewriter. She hasn’t quit writing since.
