Sandy Wilson is convinced that “God never wastes anything. As a result of my personal journey, the Lord placed a real desire in my heart to provide support and encouragement for other women. God directed me to lead annual conferences for women who have been betrayed: Betrayal Redeemed: A Journey From Hurt to Hope. At the conference we offer a keynote speaker as well as workshops on a variety of topics such as: forgiveness, boundaries, next steps, sex, courage, and many others.”

Meg Wilson has been married to her husband, Dave for 33 years. They have two adult daughters and live near Portland, OR. Since becoming a believer, Meg has gravitated towards women’s ministry. From small group facilitator, speaker, to ministry leader she has experienced the hand of God in powerful ways. Her passion is seeing women fully partake of God’s life changing love.
As a follower of Jesus Christ since the age of fifteen, Meg has spent her adult life in many types of ministry. Her mission, however, was born of the pain of betrayal in her own life. After seventeen years of marriage her husband disclosed his secret life. Suffering turned all she knew about God into pure gold.
Hope is what she found in the ashes, and hope is what she offers to other women as she encourages them to grab hold of the same golden threads of truth through her book, “Hope After Betrayal” and now Hope After Betrayal Ministries. Meg continues to offer help and hope to dozens of women whose husband’s are caught in the noose of sexual addiction.
Nicole Wells, songwriter and musician, ministers through her heart compelled by hope. Nicole is the wife of a recovering sex addict. Her CD “Restore” honestly portrays her journey laced with silent pain and despair but bursting with new found joy and trust in God.
Nicole is a professional singer and songwriter as well as a piano and violin instructor in her private studio in Sherwood OR. The mother of 2 sons, her family was reunited in 2009 following a long marital separation.
