About Elisa

While Elisa wears many hats, she has one mission . . . to inspire women to unlock their God-given callings (yes, plural) and purpose for the sake of impacting the next generation.

She is passionate about living from the overflow, which means this mission starts first in her personal life before unfolding in her business, writing, speaking, and ministry. As the owner of the Kaleo Agency, a life coaching and leadership development company, Elisa works with women as well as students in all areas of personal, spiritual, and professional growth. She also the founder of More to Be, an organization devoted to equipping women to embrace biblical mentoring relationships for the sake of impacting the next generation.

Elisa's first traditionally published book, Meet the New You: A 21 Day Plan for Embracing Fresh Attitudes and Focused Habits for Real Life Change, released in December 2015. It's a foundational tool she uses with her coaching clients, as it is designed to help women get unstuck as they encounter God personally and put into action biblical truths as well as life coaching principles relevant for their life today.

Elisa is also the author of Impact Together: Biblical Mentoring Simplified, which not only focuses on mentoring but considers the importance of understanding generational differences. Elisa frequently teaches on the topic of mentoring and generational differences, inspiring women to implement an Impact Mentoring Ministry for women at their churches.

In addition to Elisa's coaching and mentoring endeavors, you'll also find her contributing to TheBetterMom.comMothersofDaughters.com, and serving on the leadership team of WomenLeadingWomen.us, as well as a speaker at women's events and MOPS groups.

Elisa considers her most important hats to be the ones she wears at home with her family . . . as wife to Stephen for more than 20 years, and mom to four amazing children, who she lovingly refers to as the littles (son and daughter in sixth grade, yes twins) and the bigs (tenth and twelfth grade daughters). She finds her soul-rest in sitting long with the Lord and a cup of coffee at the start of the day and confesses that fun looks like binge watching Netflix with her family or lounging by the pool in the summer.

Meet the New You: How to Embrace Fresh Attitudes and Focused Habits

Most women find themselves in desiring authentic life change from the inside out. But craving change and experiencing transformation are two different things, so Lisa makes it simple by inviting women to experience a fresh encounter with God and unpacking His relevant truth for their life today.

The Call of a Message Bearer {for Writers, Speakers, and Ministry Leaders}

Wouldn’t you agree that being a message bearer is no easy thing? It’s a responsibility and calling. It’s a burden and privilege. It is full of blessing and too many trials. But have you considered how it’s been this way since the very beginning? Oh yes, since the days when Jesus’ followers first step forth to bring the Good News forth to listening ears and longing hearts, being a message bearer meant saying yes to rejections and trials and uncertain futures.All we have to do is look deeper into Paul’s letter to the Corinthians to find the tension points and wisdom for how to approach the calling of being a writer, speaker, or ministry leader in today's culture.

FreshFocus: An Invitation to Taste and See the Goodness of God in Your Life Today

This four-part messages, ideal for a weekend retreat, unpacks the  goodness of God through discovering how to embrace the way God wired us up discovering how to prepare ourselves to join God in His work, learning how to surrender to God in trials and suffering, and choosing to serve God as well as embrace rest with a pure heart.

She'll equip you to lay the ground-work for establishing a clear vision with actionable goals. Combined with the Wired Up Workshop, this is a great opportunity to grow a team or an organization.

Wired Up Workshop

With her passion for helping women, students, and organization unlock their God-given purpose and potential, Lisa believes that the first step is to understand how individual wiring works and how to utilize it for the benefit of the whole community -- whether that is in a family, a church environment, a school, or workplace. In this workshop (which can be easily turned into three to four in-depth sessions), she unpacks the nuances of personality type, spiritual gifting, and learning styles with a focus on practical application and lasting impact.

While it may be normal for every Millennial to grow up in a world of social media and screens, the reality is that their devices serve as both tools and weapons in their hands. The dopamine loop addiction is a dangerous experience for nearly every user,  so it's time face this reality and make necessary changes. This workshop is designed to educate, challenge, and encourage the implementation of safeguards and habits for responsible usage for all of us, especially as we're tasked with training up and preparing the next generation for their future. 

Connected Motherhood

We are designed by God for connection, with Him first, and overflowing into our relationships with our spouses, children, and beyond.

"I was another who gladly STOOD in the back of the packed-out room [at Raising Generations Today], spellbound and relieved by her honesty." ~ Faith

"With beautiful integrity and an open heart, Elisa Pulliam encourages women to embrace life. The attitude-focused lenses she recommends reveal vibrant color in daily living." ~ Rachel Wojo, author of One More Step

"Elisa Pulliam is the coach I always wish I had. In her book Meet the New You, she uses her signature grace-filled and honest approach to help you uncover the person you were created to be. If you are ready for a change in direction or simply want to refresh your heart, walk through the pages of this book with Elisa. You will be so glad you did." ~ Stacy Thacker, co-author of Hope for the Weary Mom

"I was so blessed by your talk! My daughter is turning 11 next month (my oldest) and I also work with the teen girls at my church and your words were incredibly helpful. My girl is a strong LEADER , and I so long for our relationship to bring glory to God and for her to be blessed in it. So, thank you." ~ Becky

“Her transparency and genuine passion to share God's healing grace and power in her life have touched the lives of so many of our girls dealing with issues of abuse, relationships, sex, marriage, abandonment and forgiveness. Her story has been used to penetrate masks and walls and probe the deeper issues of the heart's cry for fulfillment. I highly recommend Lisa as a relevant, heart-felt speaker that will compassionately challenge, encourage, and instill wisdom for young ladies, and woman both single and married.” ~ Amy Helm

"Mrs. Pulliam spoke on issues that, in our society, we are taught to cover up as women and pretend to be perfect and flawless. It was so refreshing to hear her wisdom, as she also is on a journey, growing in her faith with God. She revealed to us a message and testimony that was poignant and relatable to our own stories and struggles. She presented trusting the Lord in a new way, that personally touched my heart, and inspired me to forgive, to not be ashamed of my problems, and to live within God's protection. It, literally, changed my life, and it was the absolute perfect message I needed at this time." ~ Sarah Kratz

"Lisa allows God to redeem her ashes by sharing how He is working in her life. It was 2 Corinthians 1:4 in action, “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When there are troubles, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” ~ Marie Crandall

"I am so thankful for God giving Lisa all of her life experiences. Aside from my Bible, her writing has been my best devotional. He is allowing me to heal and to get closer to him each day, and Lisa is such a big part of that. Sure, I have lots of Christian friends, but Lisa is special. Special to me, and so special to everyone she is reaching with her words. Thank you!" ~ Alli Miller

"Lisa was a wonderful speaker with a great story to tell. She was very passionate in her beliefs as she described her personal relationship with Jesus Christ in an inspiring manner, indicating the work done on her heart." ~ Thoughts from some of the ladies attending a luncheon sponsored by Christian Women's Club

"It was a blessing to have Lisa speak at our recent Spring Ladies Brunch. She was authentic, biblical, humorous at times, and connected well with her audience. There were numerous comments indicating that her openness in sharing, as well as the topic she chose, ministered on a deeper-than-surface level. I'm confident that God used it to touch hearts and give them a more balanced perspective on what it means to be beautiful in God's eyes." ~ Joyce Musser, Women's Ministry Director

"God is so good! I have received numerous positive feedback regarding the Ladies Luncheon and the wonderful guest speaker - you! Some thought you teach a bible study and wanted to know where they could sign up. Others were so deeply moved. So many, were touched and they were from all walks of life (young, old, new believer, non-believer, mature believer). God truly used you to bless the souls of many." ~ Melodie, Luncheon Coordinator

"I've heard nothing but positives about retreat - especially about you! They appreciated that you weren't a "finished" product - a work in progress and for your realness and transparency. One our "mid age" (under 50) singles said it was the best retreat she's been to. Kudo's to you for following the Lord's direction and prompting." ~ Marjie Fischer, Retreat Coordinator

"What I loved most about the taking the life coaching course through Elisa is that she is so relational. I felt like I could ask her anything, she always took time to give wisdom-filed feedback, and she shared from her own personal experiences which was so powerful. I don't regret anything about these 10 weeks! Elisa helped to equip, empower, and encourage me in my desire to become a life coach!" Charissa

"We give thanks to Lisa for the outstanding program she gave at our Christian Women Club's luncheon. Her spell-binding story and inspirational faith ensured that your attentive audience will remember her presentation. I received countless compliments from our ladies on her behalf. We are grateful she shared her love of our Lord and her faith journey. We were deeply touched by her message." ~ Diane Kelly

"Lisa was an AMAZING guide on this journey of becoming a trained Life Coach! She kept me encouraged and really made this a process of growing for me. I will forever treasure this experience!" ~ Rose

"I had the extreme privilege to go through the life coaching process with Lisa. God used her to help me recognize the God-given strengths that I have as well as the truth of God's promises to me. Life coaching with Lisa has helped me to be more intentional and purposeful in my spiritual walk, social life, and career decisions. Lisa is warm, inviting, honest, and real and makes one feel comfortable from the start! I'd highly recommend life coaching with Lisa. I know you'll be blessed by the journey!" Kathyrn M.
