I am not usually a reader but I came across this series and I have read all 7 books from Yada yada Prayer Group in 2 months. I even have 2 friends reading them now. I really enjoyed learning about the characters in the book. As well as learning new ways to pray and new ways to strengthen your walk with God. I have purchased Neta's other series House of Hope and I am going to read all 4 of those books. And I got her Souled Out Sisters books for Christmas. So I am set with plenty to read. My mother-in-law is hooked too. She said the other day, "what are we going to do when we run out of Neta's books". I said read the books her husband, Dave Jackson wrote, about the Men's prayer group. Dave and Neta even wrote a few books together. I am really enjoying Neta can't wait to read some of Dave's stuff too. I hope you enjoy these books as much as I have. Happy reading.

These books were great to read. They are the first two books in the Yada Yada Prayer Book series. They are easy and quick to read, yet are engaging as you read about a diverse group of women who were randomly chosen to be in a prayer group during a women's conference. The books cover the relationships that develop between the women and between their families. The book also follow their spiritual growth, and their growth in their spiritual walk, prayer life, and in their relationship with God. I find it difficult to stop reading and have since read the 3rd and 4th books in the series.

I got this book and though it would be boring (it was purchased for a book club read), and I started treading it and could not put it down until I had read the very last page. Heartwarming story of several women and their respective families, the troubles and struggles they have in their lives, and how they come together and help and support one another. One of the best books I have read in many years

This takes place in Chicago and I was raised in a western suburb so am familiar with the area. Also, having just joined a Bible study group, I like the diversity of this prayer group. My group is reading this and I think it will spark great discussions of how we all struggle with practicing our religion in the real world.

The Yada Yada Prayer Group is one of the best book series I have read. You just love the characters and feel like you know each one personally. It just goes to show if you let God be your compass point, your life will be enriched with blessings of all kinds.

Great book for our church's book study group. This early book in the series is geared towards women. So, I highly recommend it for a women's book study group. It is filled with complex characters and relationship issue...great fodder for discussions.

More About the Author

As a kid I was crazy about horses and animals of all kinds and loved to draw (horses, mostly). Since I didn't have a horse, I wrote stories about them instead. My high-school English teacher sent one of my stories (about a couger) to a Scholastic magazine writing contest and it won First Place . . . and the rest, as they say, is history. I wanted to be a writer!

I grew up on the campus of a private Christian school in Seattle where my parents were teachers. A lovely childhood, though fairly sheltered. But college took me back to the Chicago area and a whole new world. My husband and I settled in the Chicago area soon after getting married, and even though we both grew up in solid Christian homes, our search to deepen our faith took the form of Christian community for much of our family life raising kids. Eventually the critical issue of racial reconciliation became the call of God upon our life, and we chose to immerse ourselves in African American and multi-cultural churches. Our world and our hearts expanded. What a gift these relationships of faith have been!

All during this time, my husband and I have been a writing team--writing books with expert resource people (as their co-authors) on a variety of topics (from medical ethics to stories of gang kids), then writing a whole series of historical fiction about great Christian heroes--40 titles in all!--called the Trailblazer books (and a series of "Hero Tales," five volumes in all). Now we are each writing adult fiction--the Yada Yada Prayer Group series for me, which was inspired by my real-life Bible study sisters, a multi-cultural group of feisty women going on 12 years now that God has used to turn my life upside down, or rather, rightside up! (I have to admit, sometimes my real world and my fictional world get a bit mixed up!)

I've been married for 40-plus years to the same wonderful man, we are truly partners in life. We raised two kids plus a Cambodian foster daughter, and together they've given us eight beautiful grandchildren! As one of my girlfriends and I agree: The best stress-busters in the world are pets, gardening, and grandkids!
