Lyschel Burket, PCC, FRLC, APSATS-c, ADOH, has been working with women since 2008 as they take steps toward healing and their pursuit of God. She has facilitated support groups specific to partners of sex addicts since 2013 both locally in Knoxville, TN and online through Vicki Tiede Ministries.

Lyschel is the Lead Hope Caster and Founder of Hope Redefined. She desires to be a part of something so much bigger than herself as she continues to expand the reach of support for women who are facing similar things to her own recovery story. She and her husband, Garren, have five kiddos. Lyschel and Garren have been on the road of recovery since 2006.

Kristen Kelly is the Executive Assistant at Hope Redefined. She is trained as a peer facilitator through A Door Of Hope and enjoys serving in administrative roles. Her desire to refine systems and processes behind-the-scenes in the community of Hope Redefined is ultimately a hope to create calm for women who are battling the turbulent storms of betrayal trauma.

After growing up in the South Dakota plains and raising her children in the Southwestern desert of New Mexico, she finds herself empty-nesting in Houston. She has been married 25 years and has been navigating the healing journey since 2004. Trips back and forth to Lawrence, Kansas, to visit her young adult children and to cheer on the KU Jayhawks have been recent highlights, though she hopes to pick up kettlebells and landscaping again soon!

Julie Palmer is the Support Group and Retreat Coordinator for Hope Redefined. She and her husband, Aaron, have been married since 2009 and have two awesome kids.

Faye Dykema has been with Hope Redefined since the fall of 2019. She is passionate that others know how awesome God is at blessing everyone in incredible ways. She has volunteered for Hope Redefined since the spring of 2020 by helping with the Hope Online community, formatting manuals and marketing
materials, helping at retreats, supporting the team and staff and assisting Lyschel with any special projects that are needed in the background. Faye and her husband, Rich, live in Palo, Iowa and have walked the betrayal journey with multiple D-days since 2009. They continue to work at their relationship – now through God’s lens of healing and unconditional love. They are both retired, have two children and two granddaughters whom they love to spend time with, and love time photographing God’s nature. Faye’s life passage is from Ephesians 3:14-21 and she prays that “you know the unfathomable love of God even though it is too great for you to fully understand.”

Sharon Jackson found Hope Redefined in January 2020 and for the first time, she found safe community where she could be among others who could identify with her pain and hope for healing. She believes that God's plan is to use her unintended journey as a way to help other women who are seeking healing from sexual betrayal. Her passion for walking with broken women who want to heal and find connection is a calling from God which continues to provide Sharon with spiritual and post traumatic growth. Some of her most enjoyable activities are walking outside, massages, aromatherapy, coloring and listening to praise and worship music.
