English Spanish

Nashville, Tennessee and Tucson, Arizona USA — Elise was raised in a Christian Science family and has always loved God and been interested in the healing practice. The first healing she remembers was on her 6th birthday when she fell off a new bicycle and was picked up unconscious and bleeding.  Her parents read the Bible Lesson to her, and through the power of God, Elise was healed within the hour.  Elise began talking to others about Christian Science and began healing herself and others. She has been a Christian Science practitioner since 1985 and a teacher of Christian Science since 1997. Elise has lectured in 13 countries and more than 300 cities in English and Spanish.

Each lecture is filled with healing examples and practical tips on how to pray and be healed.  There are examples of healing unemployment, injuries, chronic and acute disease, addiction, and children’s cases as well as examples of safety and protection. Several talks are Bible-based and help listeners connect Christian Science and Mary Baker Eddy with Christianity and Jesus’ teachings.  Those who might question God’s existence are helped to feel the divine Presence and learn something of God as Love. 

Elise lectures in churches, senior centers, care facilities, prisons, city jails, deportation centers, homeless shelters, universities, divinity schools, and Bible study groups in English and Spanish. She also gives talks in libraries, convention centers, medical settings, outdoor venues and wherever a church has been inspired to provide a talk. Having served as a chaplain in a homeless shelter as well as with Spanish speaking immigrants, Elise connects with people from diverse cultures and experiences. 

Elise has 2 step-sons and 6 grandchildren.  She loves young people and enjoys giving talks at summer camps, youth meetings, and youth groups.

Preventing Violence
