Who Is My Shelter? ~ Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Who is My Shelter
Thomas Nelson (March 1, 2011)
Neta Jackson


Neta Jackson is the author of the popular novel series, *The Yada Yada Prayer Group*, and a spin-off series called *The Yada Yada House of Hope.* These novels were inspired by a real women's Bible study and prayer group that, as Neta says, "God has used to turn my life upside down and rightside up." Neta and her husband, Dave, are also an award-winning writing team, best known for the Trailblazer books--a forty-book series of historical fiction for young people about great Christian heroes (see The Jacksons are members of a multi-cultural church in the Chicago area, and the parents of three grown children, including a Cambodian foster daughter, all with families of their own.


In Jackson's fourth Yada Yada House of Hope Christian evangelical novel, Gabby Fairbanks is now settled in her new apartment at the House of Hope. But she is being pulled in several directions at once and has some hard decisions to make.

Philip, her estranged husband, is in a lot of trouble with a rogue cop from whom he borrowed money and also with his partner at the commercial development firm after he takes company money to cover his gambling losses. Lee Boyer, the Legal Aid lawyer who has become a friend to Gabby, now wants to be more. Gabby must decide whether to give Philip another chance, as their sons, Paul and PJ, hope, and she turns to the folks at Manna House, where she works, and the Yada Yada Prayer Group to help her discern God's plan for her.

My Review:

This is a first time reading any of the Yada Yada Hope Christian books by Neta Jackson. Who is my Shelter is book 4 in the series and I will absolutely be finding the other 3 to read! This is a book about 2nd chances ~ A heartwarming story of Forgiveness and Gods grace.

Gabby's estranged husband Phi,l decides he is done with their marriage. Sadly, Gabby and her boys finally settle into their new life and new home. She has such a heart for mothers who find themselves in similar situations and helps them in the Manna House. Yet, Phil decides later leaving Gabby and his boys may have been a mistake. He seeks to work things out but will Gabby forgive him? Is this what God wants for her?

Who is my Shelter is a wonderful book! 5 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s for sure!
Thank you CFBA for this e-book version in exchange for my honest review

Happy Reading!

This was truly a great book to show how God can use anything we go through to redirect things back to Him and for His goodness.

"she is being pulled in several different directions at once and has some hard decisions to make..."

These were my words of thought just this very morning...Our 15 year old grandson is a young man that loves the Lord...but there are always pressures in life...

Enjoyed this review.

Have a Blessed Weekend..
