After everything the Yada Yadas had been through in the past eight months, I told God I could sure use a little "dull and boring" in the new year! But that was before Leslie "Stu" Stuart moved upstairs. Ms. Perfect herself and me - Jodi Baxter - living in the same two-flat? A recipe for collision.
Then Delores Enriquez's son Jose wanted to throw my Amanda a quinceanera - a coming out party, Mexican-style - and they're only 15!
At least Bandana Woman, who held up our Yada Yada Prayer Group at knife-point last fall, was safely locked up in prison...or so I thought. We visited her, like the Bible says; even sent her something for Christmas. But then she ends up back in our face. I mean, how far is forgiveness supposed to go?
I guess I should have realized that with 11 Yada Yada sisters as diverse as a bag of Jelly Bellies, life would always be unpredictable. All I know is that the longer we Yada Yadas pray together, the more "real" things are getting, not only with each other but with God. Dull and boring? Not a chance.

Never a dull moment with the Yada Yadas. Neta Jackson is pure brilliant. Another must-read.
I discovered this Yada Yada series about a year ago and started at the beginning with book 1 then book 2. Just finished this third book, and while I thought nothing would top the others, this did. I'm almost afraid to start the next one as this was just so rich and REAL! First of all the narrator is wonderful. If you know the story of the prayer group's beginnings, the Yada Yada sisters really become full Christian sisters in this edition. They've had many challenges since they were thrown together at a women's conference including several tragedies that could have pushed them apart permanently. But they prayed, and prayed and really...I know its a fictional book...I found myself praying for them and with them. If you haven't been introduced to the Yada Yada's, start at book 1 and then continue on. You won't be disappointed.
This book showed our every day struggles but the beautiful love of Jesus through these women and men! How no matter the paths you take in life God forgives and so should we!!!!
No. I believe hearing the story acted out with the voices of the different characters brought the story alive.
The most memorable moments of The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real is when Becky Wallace walks into the lake to be baptised.
All of the scenes are my favorite
The Baptism of Yo-Yo and Becky Wallace.
This is my second time reading about the Yadas. I fell in love with them and feel like they are my family. The character of Jodie Baxter makes me see that I am only human and will make mistakes. I am a sinner also, but I'm saved by grace,
