Raised in Louisiana, Effie migrates to San Francisco in the 1940s and quickly adapts to the new climate. Always the storyteller, she seizes each moment to share the parables of her life as she keeps her daily divine appointments in her home and on the streets of The City. In 1976, Effies life-long dream to get her biography wrote down leads her into friendship with Tammy, a college dropout whose faith is transformed as she hears the miraculous stories and witnesses the hope and love of this amazing woman. With tales of harsh child labor, traumatic loss, and a string of six husbands, Effie recounts her long road toward freedom as she struggled for decades to find her identity in the Lord and to forgive others- and herself. In one sense a manual for the redemptive prophet, Go Find My Story tells how prophets are born- and made. Effies God-given prophetic abilities to see and hear surface in early childhood, much to the astonishment of her family. Her visionary gifts mature as she traverses seasons of incredible hardships and personal tragedy with an ever-growing awareness of the voice and presence of the Lord watching over her. With her eyes fixed more and more on Jesus, Effie shows herself far less concerned about using her supernatural gifting than about becoming a vessel of His love to a lost and hurting world. A true spiritual mother, Effie begins to mentor her spiritual daughter Tammy on the sly in her stories- a true prophetess, Effie speaks words that shape Tammys course for the next thirty years.
