He even took over the cooking so I could write this book! He took over some of my other writing responsibilities, handling the arrangements for the writing seminars we do, which I usually did, because I simply didn't know if I could do this.
So he tried to just clear a path so I could. What were your favorite books as a child? In terms of people who influenced me in their writing, C. Lewis and Madelyn L'Engle for this reason: they wrote kids books that were good adventure stories, easy to read, and yet dealt with profound things.
Yada Yada: The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Caught Bk. 5 by Neta Jackson (2008, Paperback)
I was fascinated by books written for young people that adults also like to read, such as the Narnia series, and like Madelyn L'Engle's books about the Austin Family. They weren't trivial but they were simple, even young people could read them.
That was the model we were trying to follow in our Trailblazer books, books for kids that adults could enjoy too and dealt with things that matter. What message would you like your readers to take away from this book?

It's less a message then a vision for deeper relationships with other women, to come out of the comfort zones that we normally keep around ourselves, even though that is very understandable, very normal. Our comfort zones are there for a reason; we like to retreat when life gets hard. But there is so much richness in the Body of Christ. Much of our Christian experience tends to be a little anemic because we surround ourselves with people like ourselves. For me, I grew up in a wonderful Christian family, and had a relationship with Jesus since I was a child.
However, since this prayer group came into my life, a lot of what I know about God and about the Christian life has come alive for me.

I see it expressed in different ways. I see it lived out in situations that would probably totally blow me away. Also, I want readers to catch a vision of the common ground we have at the foot of the cross. That includes the good girls and the bad sinners—we are all just sinners, saved by grace. When we embrace that reality, we find that we have a sisterhood and a brotherhood with a wide variety of people.

Learning to see each other as God sees us, people He longs to love, longs to have in the Kingdom, in His life. In the letters I receive, almost everyone says, I'm so hungry for that kind of prayer group experience, or, my worship is kind of stagnant and you just gave me a vision of how alive it can be. Almost every letter touches some kind of hunger there and that just blesses my socks off. I couldn't ask for anything more than to encourage people in that way.

Email to club. Introduction When a wildly diverse group of women get together to pray, they have no idea how God's gonna rock their world! Editorial Review No editorial review at this time. Excerpt No Excerpt Currently Available. Which character in this novel do you identify with most? What was the common denominator that kept the women in Yada Yada hanging in there with each other? This is the seventh and final book in the Yada Yada series and unfortunately will not stand on its own.
Most authors will give enough background information so a new reader can understand some of what happened in previous stories, but that is not the case here. Author Neta Jackson gives little or no information about what has occurred beforehand and how it relates to the current story. The frenetic pace is confusing, and clipped conversations with a huge cast of characters grow tiresome quickly.

In spite of its title, the prayer group does not play a major - or even minor - role in the story but is simply tacked on in a couple of scenes. I thought this book would promote good values but again was wrong. This seems strange when it is about a Christian woman who supposedly does good works and prays a lot. Unfortunately, most is just a lot of sermonizing and rushing from place to place.
It really gave me pause when her husband saw a neighbor boy with bruises on his face. More information about this seller Contact this seller.
