The Yada Yada Prayer Group

What do an ex-con, a former drug addict, a real estate broker, 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 even go to the Chicago Women's Conference - after all, being thrown together with five hundred strangers wasn't exactly my "comfort zone."

Publisher's Summary

What do an ex-con, a former drug addict, a real estate broker, 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 even go to the Chicago Women's Conference - after all, being thrown together with five hundred strangers wasn't exactly my "comfort zone." And being placed in a prayer group of 12 women from such diverse backgrounds seemed completely awkward.

But something happened that weekend to make us realize we had to hang together. The "Yada Yada Prayer Group" was born, and we decided to meet regularly to pray for each other: knocking off each other's rough edges and learning to laugh and cry along the way! And 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.

Listen to all of our Yada Yada Prayer Group titles.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Oh, My GOSH!!! Real Stuff!!! Real Jesus!!!"

    This is one of the funniest, most honest looks at Christian life that I have EVER heard! I absolutely love it :) The closest thing I have ever encountered to the Yada Yada Prayer Group myself is worshiping in the military chapels for many years . . . where we all came, white, black,Hispanic, Philipinno, southerners, northerners, Asian, officers, enlisted . . . all of us needy . . . all of us broken . . . all of us sending our soldiers off to war . . . and all us us away from home . . . we were a crazy bunch . . . that loved each other. Got mad at each other . . . kept one another's kids . . . ran one another's errands . . . knew one another's faults . . . and our numbers got smaller and smaller, as our husbands left . . . and then families went back to the states . . . and we hung on to one another even harder . . . and hung on to our Jesus. The Yada Yada Prayer Group lets us see Christians as they really are . . . flawed people, in need of a savior . . . lets us hear the funny, serious, and sometimes scary thoughts all of us have sometimes. I cannot WAIT to listen to the next book in the series. Thank you, Neta Jackson!!!

    Any additional comments?

    The story is heartwarming and real. What a wonderful prayer group to belong to. Would love to see this type of love in the real world.
    I enjoy Barbara Rosenblat so much, that when a friend recommended this book and I discovered it was narrated by Ms. Rosenblat - I purchased it. She gives each character their own personality and makes you feel like you are part of the Yada Yada Group.

    "Wonderful!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Yada Yada Prayer Group the most enjoyable?

    I am in a prayer group and I can identify with this group of ladies


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Yada Yada Prayer Group?

    Throughout the book, Jodi really didn't have much to pray about but a the end, she needed her friend more than ever.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She has a wonderful voice that draws you into the story,


    If you could rename The Yada Yada Prayer Group, what would you call it?

    I like the name.


    Any additional comments?

    I've heard many good stories about these books and the first lived up to the hype. I have already purchased book 2.

    "Barbara Rosenblatt Is Amazing"

    Barbara Rosenblatt's exceptional versatility as a narrator is what makes this mediocre novel a worthwhile listening experience and the only reason I rated it 4 stars. Ms. Rosenblatt has been one of my favorite narrators for many years. In this novel, her amazing ability to create the voices of more than 12 female and male characters of different races and of various nationalities within those races is simply stunning and the only reason I persevered listening to the end of the novel. Had I been reading it in the printed version, I would not have finished this novel.

    1. Reader is spectacular.
    2. Whole story is very good leading to a moving and spiritually powerful concluding couple of chapters.

    Story
    "An encouraging good time."

    This was a very fun book. It's a little light and the main character is a frustrating at times, but overall it very enjoyable. The performance was great, bringing to life more than a dozen characters from different parts of the country and the world.

    "Praise in all things"

    I loved how the relationships bloomed the growth in God for this group of odd ladies (differences). By the end of the novel I had recommitted to praising God and spending time with him. I had become a member of the prayer group by proxy!

    Where does The Yada Yada Prayer Group rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Flo, so believable. Love her lines - very funny


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    Each character sounds unique


    If you could take any character from The Yada Yada Prayer Group out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Would have to take the whole group, individually they wouldn't be interesting
