It was good to find out a bit more about some of the other Yada Yada group members in this book. These books always touch on some meaningful issues - in this one, there is the ongoing foster/adoption/birth parent issue, continuing on with issues regarding forgiveness, plus abortion, faithfulness, adolescent love, baptism

I liked, as always, the insight into Jodi’s prayer life, and her insights about herself and how she relates to others.

I’m looking forward to the fourth in the series but I still

Just finished this one---concluding in the marriage of Avis and Peter, and the baptisms of YoYo and former prisoner, Becky Wallace--------and have book #4 in my hand. These ladies are my imaginary friends!

In this installment of the Yada Yada Prayer Group series, our narrator Jodi Baxter is dealing with new aspects of the problems that plagued her in the first two books. 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.

I've read several comments online from people who say they can't make it through the entire series becaus

THIS SUMMARY/REVIEW WAS COPIED FROM OTHER SOURCES AND IS USED ONLY AS A REMINDER OF WHAT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT FOR MY PERSONAL INTEREST. ANY PERSONAL NOTATIONS ARE FOR MY RECOLLECTION ONLY

Personal note:
So far this was my favorite which other reviewers has noted. Also way to much singing except for the last one. The male singer was excellent

This book is the 3rd of Yada Yada Prayer Group...I haven't found the 2nd book yet. I don't know what I am missing. I know that in ministries like this it can involve a whole lot of people. I like how when the group meets all of their families, and attends each one's church. How the group meets every other week at someone's designated home. I like how they support one another in every day living. I know that some people are well meaning, and a know it all, like Stu, but she had good intentions. U ...more

The main theme for this book is how to forgive & how to feel accountable. accountability and forgiveness are both on hard feat to achieve. Both require you to dig down deep inside and really get real with yourself. Neither is easy or quick, both are a process the you must doggedly labor at. However, the end results always seem so refreshing & vindicating. I have said it before and I'll say it again, I am addicted to this series. Three books in & I am sure that I want to read all seve ...more

I really like this whole series! The characters are real and funny and yet these books are far from fluff. In them we learn that we all struggle and to accept each other where we are each at and not to let race, church denomination ( or lack there of) separate us in the family of God. Excellent

Another great book in the Yada Yada series. This one does a good job of helping us see how important it is to look at our own faults before judging others. Even when we do find fault, it's necessary to admit it and apologize for doing so.

The thing that struck me hardest about this part of the story is how Stu opened her heart to someone she knows is a violent criminal. That takes a lot of courage.

I just love this series. The re-cap parts can be a bit annoying, since I'm reading them one after another, but I imagine if there had been some time between each book, they would be necessary. The books are a bit convicting and I imagine that almost anyone will end up identifying with one or more characters on several levels.

Honest and funny which is not what came to mind when picking up this book. I thought it was going to be very heavy on the prayer aspect, but religion was written in with a manner of understanding it isn't a one method understanding and solution. Many parts are thought provoking and bring up great conversations. Very enjoyable reading.

Once again I was deeply connected to all of the characters and their third wild ride, surprising me with every page. I love the way the women can sometimes fight but always come back together and grow stronger. I love that a new member was added to the group and I can't wait to see what kind of problems the Yada Yadas run into next.

Without a long recap this was the best one yet. Full of twists and turns including a wedding. I find that I can relate to Jodi much more as these books go on and I am learning more about myself each time.

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.

Can the Yada Yada Prayer Group series get any better?! I am constantly moved by the life experiences; the fellowship; the honesty between this group of ladies; and the way God is working in, through, and around their lives. What a wonderful series!

another series that is better as it goes along. Over 400 pages, and throughout the reading, I kept wanting to read a little bit more. (Just one more chapter syndrome)

Focuses on Stu moving in above Jodi, her reasons for why, and forgiveness.
