Sincerely, Mayla

Sincerely, Mayla

by: Virginia Smith

Kregel Publications-2008

This is one of my favorite books of 2008. It’s fun, comical, and down to earth. Sincerely, Mayla,centers around Mayla Strong. A woman whose life is falling apart, while she’s being sucked into her friends problems. There was only one thing to do–take a vacation. Off she goes to visit family where she can rest and relax. There is little rest and relaxation happening on this trip. Not only do her friends literally show up on the doorstep, but she discovers that her family has their own problems. Control freak Mayla tries to solve every ones problems her way. Before long she realizes it should be God’s way, and God will work everything out.

This should be in every beach bag and on every summer reading list. It’s an easy read that tackles some very difficult and heavy issues without being disrespectful. It’s also a great read for all your unsaved friends as it shows a positive and Biblical way to handle certain ills in society.

This is the sequel to Just As I Am. I haven’t read that one yet, but I’m going to drop it in my suitcase for my own vacation.





  1. This sounds like a real interesting book. Do you have a Shelfari account? If so, add me, I go by carolshmarol.


  2. This sounds like a really good book. I’d love to read it, along with Virginia’s first one. My best to her on both.

  3. Thanks for participating in the blog tour for SINCERELY, MAYLA! I appreciate it. Be sure to let me know what you think when you read Mayla’s story.

  4. I am so glad I found your site. It is full of good information and you have a very fresh style of writing that is a joy to read. It is on my “keepers” list.
