A devastating fire wakes up the Yadas to a new reality: God is on the move.


What I'd like to know is, why does God keep rearranging my comfort zone? It could have something to do with my Yada Yada prayer sisters, who aren't afraid to get in each other's faces and tend to expect big things from God.


But to move forward, sometimes we have to let go of what's behind. In spite o

I have enjoyed all of the Yada books and feel like I've gotten to know these women. We should all have a group of friends like this. I like reading about developing a relationship with God in real life and sometimes ordinary situations.

On page 203. I just love these books. Envy the ladies in this prayer group and wish that I was involved in something similar. Their stories touch me and make me realize something is missing in my life.

Finished yet another one in this series. This particular book seemed to deal with loss..loss of a family pet, loss of a family member, loss of a home, etc. and how we need to keep moving forward as difficult as it may seem some times. Keep your faith, always.

Wow... that was some ride. I'm still wiping the tears off my face from the last few chapters. Good tears though. It wasn't sad, just incredibly moving.

I'm sad there are only 7 books in this series, because they are just incredible. I pray I can learn to pray like Jodi and her Yada Yada sisters... and I wouldn't mind hearing that still small voice as clearly either.

Once again Neta Jackson did a great job with the crazy group of women that make up the Yada Yada Prayer Group. The way the storyline incorporates scripture throughout the situations and the the use of prayer in any and every situation makes this a really uplifting and spirit filled story. The laughter, fun, and craziness just add the piece de resistance.

In book 6, the Yada Yada Prayer group realizes they have become complacent in their worship, with their families, and in their community. Each knows they must reaffirm their belief in the Lord, as God always brings a renewal of life and spirit out of the ashes of destruction.

The Yada sisters must grow and embrace the change of merging the Uptown Community with the New Morning Christian Church that potentially can make both stronger as neither would remain homogeneous. The sisters especially unde

Recommends it for: Christian woman
This series follows a wife and mother of two. In book one she attends a womans christian conference where she meets 11 other woman. These 12 woman become a close nit group. Each book follows them through different trials and experiences while they lean not only on each other but on God.

I am currently on book 6 and they are all an amazing read. I have deffinitly learned a thing or two from these books. But most of all they are so good once I pick them up they are very hard to put down again.

This installment of the Yada Yada Prayer Group series deals with death, jail, fires, volunteerism, and how to make the best use of God's blessings. There was one twist in the storyline that made me tear up a little, but for the most part I read this because of my strange need to complete series. So much has happened to these characters that I can't imagine what would be left for the seventh book.

After about a year I thought it would be good to get back to the Yada-Yada series and I am glad I did. There are some "unbelievables" in this story, but maybe that just shows the poverty of my faith. The description of the Seder is something I am printing out for future reference. One of the themes is "look for the possibilities," a great help in my present state of thinking.

As usual, the crazy yada yadas have left me inspired & motivated in my faith. Tears again, of course! (Good ones!). This book especially left me wanting to see Gods kingdom advance here on earth & asking God to guide my steps for His glory.

Loved the whole series! this is not the last book, but the 2nd to last. I had inadvertantly read the last book of the series first when I picked it up off the shelf display in Christian fiction section of my local library...the title was "weird" and the cover was cute, and I was in the mood for something light to read. I got the right thing! I loved the book, and had to go back to the beginning of the series to read them all, and find out about the beginnings of all of the characters...especiall ...more

This book spends a lot of time developing Josh's story at the woman's shelter. Jodi volunteers to help and due to a devastating fire had to learn how to support her children in all they do without trying to fix their problems. She is not the only parent in the group of Yadas who has to learn this lesson. The Yadas learn to trust and give God the reigns of their life.

The drama in this book was real! From breakups to deaths to engagements to homecomings, Lord knows this book was packed. & I loved ever minute of it & it kept me on my toes. So, I am off to go read the last book of the series! I am kind of sad, because the series is coming to a close, but I have to think of the possibilities!

Another great Yada Yada book!!!

I felt as if I was actually at the Yada Yada prayer gatherings. Neta Jackson once again delivered a wonderful book. I would definitely recommend this book!! I can't wait to read the next one!

a. Excellent series of Jodie and her prayer group consisting of Adele, Edesa, Flo, Yo-Yo, Avis, Ruth, Leslie (Stu) Stuart, Delores, Hoshi, Nony, Chanda and Becky Wallace (Do I have all the names?)
b. We meet many other characters along the way including Jodie’s husband Denny and their 2 teenagers, Josh and Amanda and the families of the other Yada-Yadas.
c. There’s a fatal accident, a robbery, a shooting, as well as love and laughter, and many other goings-on in this series. These peop

I keep reading this series despite major irritations. The narrator constantly refers to herself as "Jodi "Good Girl" Baxter" or "Good Christian Girl" Jodi, or "Old Jodi" vs "New Jodi"... ugh.

Since I enjoyed Lorna Landvik's Book Club book (Angry Housewives eating bonbons), I thought another 'club' type book should be good. However, I guess one must either be in dire need of spiritual help or be a jehovah's witness of sorts to like this book. There could be a good story going, but, with all the prayer and Jesus stuff going on, one has to dig deep for the story, and even then perhaps miss parts of it. So, hurray for Neta Jackson, since she seems to have a big fan club (or else so many ...more

This is a great book for women who want a light read.
It's the kind of book you zip right through as you follow the 14 yada yadas in their prayer group. The story is inspiring, it makes you want to get out there and keep doing things for God. It also is a very big encouragement to pray regularly.
I thought a book about a prayer group would be boring, but the author develops a new story in each book while using the same characters. With each book in the series you read the more connected you beco

"Gets Rolling" was one of her best! The Yada Yada's seem to really hang tough in this one, with so much to go through together, death, disease, jail time. These books teach us that we should all give back like "Pay it Forward." So much scripture in each book, which I love. I have one more to read before the series end, and I will be sad. Just wished Neta Jackson would start back up again and write more. These are very good for the soul! Love that Chanda has she spreads her money with love!

My last book of 2010! I finally bought the last two Yada Yada books so I can finish the series. As with all the other books, the Extreme Diversity and charismatic influences are heavy-handed, but there's no doubt that these stories put me in a more God-centered mindset. Plus, I always enjoy good individual AND group character development over a long period of time. One more to go!

I don't consider myself a Christian fiction "fan", but for the Yada series I make an exception. Like many Christna woman's fiction books there are women who are good role models and the prose is easy reading. Somehow though, through the course of the women's lives Jackson describes common problems and faith issues and touch me throough fiction in a way a non-fiction book could not.

As usual, Jodi is unappreciated and yet depended on by everyone (gah, I can relate. LOL) Best part may be the Juvie play. Oh, and the "Bada Boom Brothers". Yep, the name stuck with me after the first use. Ha-ha! End is a bit rushed, perhaps because of the length of the book? *shrugs* By this time, so invested in these characters...bittersweet that it's almost "the end".

More intriquing twists and turns occur in the lives of the Yada Yada families when Florida's sons is sent to the juvenile detention center and Jodi volunteers to substitute for the drama teacher at the center. Breakthroughs are made in several situations just as more complications develop with Chandra, Avis and also Edessa. Bring kleenex to this one.
