Elise Adams


Elise Photini Adams shares from her heart on the subjects of rebuilding physical, emotional and spiritual health after coming out of homelessness, addiction and abusive relationships.

In short Elise’s deepest joy is sharing her experience, strength and hope! She’s been to the bottom of life and lived to tell about it, surviving 3 years of homelessness to come “home” to both her church family and hometown with two beautiful girls. Over the past 5 years she’s rebuilt her emotional health with the help of an amazing accountability team and completely transformed her parenting, personal recovery and relationships in the process.

Now Elise reaches out to others facing personal struggles with practical solutions for stress, chaos and conflict. Her message is that a life free from fear, chaos and both physical and emotional misery is within all our grasp!

When speaking to audiences of all kinds Elise focuses on the singular transformative experience in her life of breaking free of an abusive relationship. Relating openly the mental metamorphosis required to change her circumstances, audiences relate that her practical and uplifting strategies for reaching out to those trapped in addiction, abuse or illnesses are invaluable.

Elise also writes and speaks on helping children deal with stress, handling family or social conflicts and personal recovery topics revolving around the 12 steps and the life of an Orthodox Convert in America today. Her blog targets those struggling to escape difficult circumstances as well as those simply struggling to get through the ‘normal’ challenges. Having worked as a Professional Organizer, Health Coach and currently working on her RN degree brings a wide range of topics within Elise Adams expertise.

And Elise is working on all these topics close to her heart while keeping up with 3 small children, a young-adult daughter, a God-given home, a super-busy full-time Nursing School schedule and all the myriad practical challenges that come with these responsibilities.  The thriving Adams’ family lives in Eastern WA state where they are active in their local Russian Orthodox Christian parish as well as serving as volunteers with a local Celebrate Recovery group.  Gardening, organizing stuff and reading are some of Elise’s favorite hobbies.


Elise’s speaking topics include:

 -healthy & simple family living

 -frugal, simple living in today’s complicated world

 -creating an oasis of spiritual safety for our kids

 -Elise’s personal story of conversion

 -the transformative power of The Jesus Prayer

 -sustainable living without spending a penny more

 -helping our kids eat healthy

 -urban gardening & homesteading

 -becoming a good parent after a difficult childhood

 -healing and hope for addiction, trauma & struggle

 -the Twelve Steps and Orthodox truths, do they fit together?


Elise focuses each talk on the particular audience and environment she’s asked to address. Elise is comfortable speaking to all types of audiences and looks forward to serving yours!
