I had never felt so violated! The Yada Yada Prayer Group was "gettin' down" with God in prayer and praise one night when a heroin-crazed woman barged into my house, demanded our valuables, and threatened us with a 10-inch knife-a knife that drew blood.
We wondered if we'd ever get back to normal after this terrifying experience. I assumed we would. After all, we'd started praying together at the Chicago Women's Conference last spring, and we'd been through a lot already as spiritual sisters. This was just one more hurdle to conquer, right?
But then a well-meaning gesture suddenly incited a backlash of anger in the group, forcing us to confront generations of racial division, pain, and distrust-and stretching our friendship to the limit. And a shocking confrontation in my third-grade classroom forced me to face my own accountability and learn what true forgiveness really is.

CindiPennsylvaniaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Five Stars times two!October 17, 2014CindiPennsylvaniaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I lost sleep over this one! I could not put this book down. This is the second book in the series and, as much as I loved the first one, Gets Down is even better!!
So much happens to the Yada Yada group, and their families, that will keep you glued to the pages. I don't want to give away anything in the story but I will say, READ THIS BOOK. You won't be disappointed.
The greatest message that I received from this book is the importance of having God in our lives and trusting Him to see us through. We may not see the reason for things we should do, but we still have to follow His leading. Having fellow Christians praying and being there for each other is vital.
I highly recommend The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Down.
