This book is the first of 12 in a series. I wasn't sure I was going to like this book by the cover. But I have heard it said that "You can't judge a book by it's cover" so I didn't. The story starts out with Jodi (the main Character) attending a Chicago Women's Conference with her School Principal friend Avis. About 500 women are there.
The first night they split everyone up to pray in PRAYER GROUPS. These woman are like the league of nations. All different shapes and sizes and backgrounds. They are at this conference for 3 days and decide to keep the prayer group going. There are 12 women total in the group.
They prayed for each other via e-mail and that worked for a while but a few of the girls did not have e-mail. It became difficult to keep in touch. So, they decided to meet in person to pray.
God uses these women to knock off each other's rough edges, and learn to laugh and cry along the way. God also uses these women to show all of them what it means to be just a sinner SAVED BY GRACE. It is light hearted and powerful in parts. Not what I excepted. I'm glad.

Very moving. What happens when you put a bunch of random women together and surround them with the love of God and the spirit of women.

Great book. A little different than other Christian Chick lit I've read but I really got wrapped up in the story. I loved following the women in the prayer group as well. It made me long for my own prayer group like theirs.
