The thought once occurred to me that God is always watching over us. Baring witness to all that we do. And if the Bible is to be believed, all of our mates are sent from God above, correct? So, in His all-knowing wisdom, he may look down at us and find our choices fruitless, misguided, or simply hilarious.
What would He say if he took the time to comment on not only our love lives, but our spiritual ones as well? I presume he’d peer below with a sure grin, chuckling to Himself as he watched us attempt at controlling our own lives and imparting our own wills. Possibly losing patience with our stubborn ideals.
This romance series is what I imagine that to look like. Not a traditional spiritual romance, but rather a comedic, all-seeing point of view from someone who already knows how the story will end. An added dynamic to a traditional format… God’s Hand, if you will.

I taught her better.
I gave her every opportunity to do what was in her best interest. But she insisted on doing what she wanted anyway.
So, I decided to throw something at her that she’d been completely unprepared for.
With the last person in the world she'd have seen coming. And the last person in the world she wanted anything to do with.
See, I had so much fun watching her try to fight against it, that I thought maybe I’d bring some of you along for the ride.
Walk with Me down memory lane while I relive one of My favorite miracles. Because, as I’m sure you’ll soon figure out, Mary finding true love is indeed a miracle.
Who am I? So glad you asked.
I am, the Great I Am.
And I’ve got a very unique story to tell.
These are the many, many... Many misadventures of Mary.

This book was great... Took me a little while to get through it but it was just easier to digest that way... I loved Darold from the beginning even with that rocky start I knew he was the man for Mary...I’m ecstatic that Mary was finally able to see by the end the error in her ways and begin to strengthen her relationship with God that will ultimately bring the happiness she yearns for from her relationships... I love her friends and family even though I felt they could of helped Mary more besides overlooking her self destruction and Who doesn’t love a good word from God... This book was definitely an different read for me but I enjoyed how it was written so much and definitely wouldn’t mind this writing style in the future and definitely reading more from this author... Can’t wait to read the next book in this series I know it will be great
Hands down, this is one amazing read! I am anxiously awaiting the sequel to this book. I couldn’t put it down and was so upset when I finished it. Highly recommend you read this book and take a wonderful journey through the lives of the characters and I guarantee you will find yourselves praying for them.
I was initially thrown off by the introduction of God’s voice in the story. I was worried about how He would be portrayed. Soon I found myself enjoying His incites and was disappointed when there would be long stretches with no input from Him. There was some over the top drama and definite sweep it under the rug moments that left me wanting but over all the book was good. I didn’t like the all cured ending because that is not how it works. We are not all better it’s an everyday sort of thing. And because there is a book 2 (eluded to at the end of the book) Mary still has a way to go.
She’s learned her lesson the hard way, now what?
Mary was finally able to admit she handles her anger in the worst way possible. And she was finally able to admit to being in love with Darold too. I watched her along with you and enjoyed Myself immensely chuckling at her tremulous road to this discovery. While the scariest part of her journey, admitting there was a problem, is over, the longest part of her journey is just beginning.
Now, she has to implement the lesson.
Tests and obstacles are given, persons from the past decide to make themselves known, and surprises shock not only her but the people around her. We all remember how Mary enjoys those surprises, don’t we? But can she handle them?
Where’s My popcorn? We were just getting to the good part!
Who am I?
Well, let’s just say there was a ram in the bush…

Desiree you’ve done it again!!! I thought I was ready for this book...but you blew my mind with this one! I absolutely love the spiritual references throughout the book, they bring a lesson along with a good laugh (God is hilarious). Then, my new favorite couple, Darold & Mary finally got back on the good foot lol and brought the peanut gallery along for the ride. I laughed, I cried, I learned life lessons; now to see what comes next...the old folks cut up something terrible, and now I’m ready to see what it brings! Great writing ma’am!
I loved Mary and DC's journey together! They were meant for each other. I loved the parts where the great I AM decides to speak. It was comical. The girls are a mess and the momas and aunts too! The guys hold their own! What really touched me was that I recently lost someone who was like a son to me. He was buried a week ago today at the age of 21. He jumped in a lake a never surfaced until his body was recovered by divers. He was my daughter's best friend. I do believe God lead me to read this story because the message that the author delivered was meant for me to read. Thank you for the entertainment and I hope we get a story with Aunt Vicki and Ty with updates on Mary and DC.
They’re back! The whole crazy crew and family! I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I laughed, cried, highlighted and received insight and revelation of my own journey. God speaks , but now have to listen👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Welcome back! I’ve missed you. I’d ask how you’ve been, but we’re not going to pretend like I don’t already know.
So, where were we? Ah yes, I remember...
The idea that love looks or feels perfect is not only a myth, it’s a dangerous delusion.
Everyone has control over their own actions. What they cannot control are the responses to those actions. We’re all aware of the usual suspects’ ability to have a good time. That has never changed. They’re famous for it. The whole crew is back again, and the family is growing.
But each of their pasts play a major role in who they are today…
So, what happens when your past shows up to threaten your future, and the people that you love question not only themselves, but you too?
Can you believe that after all that I’ve done for them, they still question so many things? I’m insulted.
Hello! Standing right over here waiting to be asked. You know, just watching the world spin, twiddling My all-powerful thumbs and whatnot.
Let not your heart be troubled, as you believe in God, believe also in Me…
(Note: This is a revised version of Believe In God, Believe Also in me -God’s Hand Book 3- with additional scenes and chapters, hope you enjoy!)
First, this book was well-written and if you're anything like me, that matters. Second, this was a great dramatic and yet beautifully spiritual ride. The Bible verses, reflections, and different takes that characters had on how the Word was relevant to their situations was uniquely woven into a satisfying story. This is one you’ll feel good about reading.
This was a wonderful story...the moment when Mom started singing really broke me down...as you said the words are so simple but so impactful and I hadn't heard it in a long time...and also I would love to hear Dove's and Evan's story...you can't just leave their lives up in question like that 😂...looking forward to reading more from Ms. Desiree...your audience needs to hear from you
Mary and the gang are a mess and they had me laughing the whole time. I like how they ride for each other no matter what. I also liked the spiritual references throughout the book. It was a great ending. I would be interested in Dove and Evan if they have a story to tell.
“She needs you, baby. More than you could ever know. Now, I want you to promise me something. Promise me that you’re gonna take care of your Mama, Dove?” “Yes, Grandma. I’ll always be here for her…”
Dove made a promise to her grandmother as a child, right before I’d called her home to glory. She’d promised to be there for her mother no matter what. But keeping that promise was killing her.
Life for her was never easy, but she never thought that it would be. She’d been made aware of their lack of money, love, and support from the moment that she was old enough to understand what those things were. But Temple Zion had always been there for her. I made sure of that.
The church Dove grew up in was her family. Her backbone. They were the only real family she ever felt she’d had. However, things seemed to be getting worse, not better. And at 23, no matter how much she tried, she couldn’t even so much as keep a job.
Some Christian gossip and a simple introduction I’d orchestrated long ago, changed the rest of her life one day. Gave her something that she never knew she’d needed, as well as a group of people she never would’ve even known to ask or pray for.
It also gave her the love of her life.
Happily ever after or not… this is how Dove got her wings and learned to fly.
