We are committed to providing you with the gift of being seen, heard, and supported.

It is amazing what can happen in your life when you get to process your thoughts and feelings . . .

Coaching provides you with an emotionally safe space and dedicated support to help you gain clarity and make decisions that line up with God's best for your life.

Through our network of More to Be coaches, you can experience this gift . . . really this freedom . . . by choosing to work with a coach that fits with your schedule, budget, and area of focus.

All More to Be Coaches have been trained through our founder, Elisa Pulliam, and received their certification through Life Breakthrough Academy.

Once you book your consultation session, you'll get to work exclusively with that coach as she customizes a program that best meets your needs.

Let's Get Started

Meet Elisa

As a biblically-focused trauma-informed coach, Lisa is gifted at helping you understand how you've been made by God for a purpose, shaped by your experiences, and how you can align your life with God's best as you move forward. She is especially passionate about helping you find healing of your mind, heart, and body so that you may live with joy and peace in any and every situation.

In addition to being a certified coach for nearly a decade, she is also completing training to become a trauma-informed equine-assisted coach (yes, coaching with horses) and is also in process of becoming a clinical counselor. As a certified Highlands Ability Battery consultant, she has access to one of the most effective assessments available to help you gain awareness about strengths, personality, learning style, and relational style.

Elisa founded More to Be in 2010 as an overflow of her real-life ministry mentoring teenage girls for more than 15 years at a boarding school. She has been coaching since 2011 and training coaches through since 2012. Her passion is to see women pinpoint their mindset obstacles and strategize practical steps for moving forward according to God's plan for their lives as a result of what she's experienced for herself, overcoming childhood abuse and living years apart from the love of God. Each day, she seeks to savor time with Jesus, enjoy the simple things with her family, and, as a recovering workaholic, devoting as much time to rest as to productivity.

Meet Carly

Life thrown you a curveball? Me too. In the span of a year, I found myself divorced and raising children with special needs. It left me feeling like I was sitting on the sidelines while everyone else lived on. I struggled to figure out where I fit now, both in life and in church. But I’ve discovered there is joy and good, even on the sidelines, and I want you to know it too.

Whether you are feeling emotionally or practically stuck, I would love to help you discover hope and joy again, wherever life’s circumstances have taken you.

I am remarried now with an additional little bundle, bringing my total to four children. One of which is adopted. I love adoption and foster care and helping walk families through that process as well.

I am a creative empath at heart and enjoy spending my free time visiting with a friend, or on whatever creative outlet is my current fav including photography, knitting, and home decorating. If there is one thing the last several years has taught me, it’s that God wasn’t finished with me and I’m certain he isn’t finished with you either.

Meet Perry

Perry's passion is to help mature women embrace their season of life and become the best version of themselves through discovering how God uniquely designed them by examining their values, strengths and gifts.

Walking people through where they currently are, seeing where they want to go, identifying and overcoming obstacles and establishing an action plan is not new for Perry. She has converted these skills developed over the past 26 years of being a physical therapist to her life coaching career. She sees that no matter what age we are or what season of life we find ourselves, we have value and have so much to offer. Having gone through several major life changes, she understands how women can feel lost (whether in identity, purpose or direction), but also understands how to get through their circumstances and to truly live an intentional and impactful life again.

Ultimately, Perry envisions a world full of women in their second half of life who have rediscovered themselves, rejuvenated their dreams and transformed their with purpose, passion and peace.

Perry is a wife, a mother of three and is active in her church and other mission work. As a life-long learner, she not only enjoys reading and discovering new truths, she seeks respite in the outdoors by camping, boating, backpacking and participating in wilderness adventures.  Connect with Perry at

Unexpected life changes? I've been there multiple times. My life has taken many unexpected paths, including a complicated marriage of 30 years that ended in a heartbreaking divorce. 


Yet amid the unplanned pit stops, the Lord has drawn me into a deeper relationship with Him. 


I understand how easy it is to fall into a pit that's hard to crawl out of, yet God always pulled me out.  I'm passionate about leading women through the Bible as they walk through the difficulties life brings to climb out pits down a new path where the Lord leads.

Meet Kristen

Kristen focuses her passion to speak life into women through coaching ministry wives of all stages and ages. She helps them to release their burdens and identify their expectations in order to live the joy-filled life they know is available through Christ.

She wants ministry wives everywhere to know and experience that they are deeply loved for who they are (not what they do/ don't do), they are seen, and they are heard by a loving Savior.

Growing up in a pastor's home, Kristen considered it to be a joy and often thought she'd marry a pastor. She loved leading serving and leading women of all ages, but she most enjoyed serving and training other ministry wives throughout the years. At some point, she began to experience the drain (and eventually resentment and bitterness) to which working without boundaries and surrendering her own expectations and plans will always lead.

Aside from ministry life, Kristen and her husband, Jason, are continually seeking God's wisdom to raise 6 busy and growing children, ages 4 - 16. When not busy with all the "mom things," you can find her sitting at the piano putting the Psalms together with tunes she likes to create or reading a good book.

Meet Lanae

Lanae is passionate about coaching young individuals who feel stuck and unfulfilled to give them hope, direction, and clarity in who God has called them to be. After suffering life-changing back injuries following a car accident at age 16, she felt hopeless and alone. As a young mother of 2, she found herself lost in everyone’s expectations and had no idea who she was besides a full-time mother. She recently came across life coaching and once she realized she could coach alongside God’s word, she knew she was moving in the right direction. She had always imagined herself owning her own business but knew she wanted to serve others in a special way. She will help you discover your God-given purpose, passions, values, and set personal boundaries to reach your goals. Connect with Lanae at

Elisa Pulliam

I'm often asked, "What does a coach actually do?"

It's a great question because I wasn't sure until I went through my coach training certification nearly a decade ago. I didn't realize that it was way more than cheerleading and had nothing to do with advice-giving.

I often compare coaching to what you experience when you go to a doctor's office. The nurse's job is to make you feel comfortable and gather all the necessary information for the doctor. Meanwhile, the doctor's job is to diagnose your problem and give you the course of treatment. As a coach, I function like the nurse and the doctor is your Creator God, who knows you best of all.

God is the One who has everything you need and through the work of the Holy Spirit can lead you in the right direction.

I help you get ready to hear from God and spur you on to keep going back to Him until you get the answer you're looking for.

Whether you're seeking to get unstuck or explore new opportunities, build a new ministry or launch a new business, a transition to a new career or move towards a dream, it is my privilege to serve as your coach.

I understand what it feels like to be stuck and overwhelmed. I'm here to help you feel heard, seen, and supported as you pursue your God-designed life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

Coaching is more than merely having a conversation. It's about strategizing your best next steps forward through gaining awareness, pinpointing obstacles, clarifying vision, and identifying solutions.

Is this Christian-Based?

Yes, and no. I am a Christian and would be honored to pray for you and offer a biblical perspective as we coach. However, this experience is about you. I can coach you without speaking about my faith.

What is the time commitment?

Session length and frequency of appointments will be discussed with your coach, as packages are customized to your needs.

Where do we meet?

Check with your coach to see how she would like to meet with you.

How much will this cost?

Coaching packages typically start at $249 for three 45-minute sessions.

How do I know this will work?

That's a great question. I wouldn't still be coaching for nearly a decade if it didn't work nor train hundreds of coaches over the last six years. However, what I've come to see is that coaching works if you're willing to invest in the process, show up prepared, and put into action your ah-ha.
