Pursue God’s Calling With Clarity

Once Upon A Time…

Long before Cristi Schroeder started offering resources for purpose-driven Christian women, stories were changing!

After obeying God’s call to travel to Eastern Europe to learn about human trafficking, Cristi returned home in 2009 and invited God to use her, for the effort, in any way He wanted.

Altered Story began when Cristi transformed vintage books into home decor and other goodies to sell on Etsy, art fairs, etc. Her goal was to alter those ink & paper stories to change the real-life stories of trafficking victims by raising awareness and giving back a % of profits.

Using her interests, talents, skills and connections for something that mattered brought Cristi such joy and peace and increased confidence to make a bigger and bigger impact on the world!


Cristi experienced amazing transformation in every area of life… simply because she was living for God’s purposes.

She decided it was time to connect and equip other Christian leaders to go after God’s purposes with greater intention, too! Helping women discover and pursue God’s calling so they can enjoy a more meaningful and fulfilling life is now her biggest passion.

Women of faith are experiencing spiritual maturity, personal growth, relational health and meaningful impact… alongside other women who are intentional about pursuing God’s purposes, each and every day!

Leading Ladies who want to make the most of their one life story find encouragement and equipping through Cristi’s offerings.

Meet Cristi Schroeder
AKA: Your Purpose Guide

Pastor/Pastors Wife – I’ve been blessed to serve in Christian ministry alongside my husband for 20+ years. As leaders in the Assemblies of God, we believe the Holy Bible is the infallible word of God and we love Jesus and His Church! When Jesus-loving Christians of various backgrounds & denominations come together, He is glorified! 

Social Impact Entrepreneur – Quitting my “safe” day job to pursue my dream of mobilizing Christian women to live for God’s purposes was a pivotal moment in my story! I know that what I’ve learned can help you as you pursue new things, too!

Abolitionist – The reason I began Altered Story was to help raise funds for the anti-trafficking cause. I started out crafting home decor and other goodies out of vintage books, changing those stories to alter the stories of trafficking victims.  Now, Altered Story’s focus is to help you alter YOUR story so you can make your own difference in the world! I encourage your involvement in causes you care about as I continue to raise awareness to fight modern day slavery.

Author – My big dream has always been to be a writer.  So, as I encourage YOU to learn new skills and grow abilities that will help you reach your dreams, I practice writing. All the content I create is geared to help you transform your life to change this world. My current work in progress is a contemporary young adult sure to inspire anyone seeking God’s direction. 

Artist – If you hang around me long enough, you will likely hear about my hobby of painting using mixed media materials- especially vintage book pages. I don’t sell my creations at art fairs, anymore.  Using creativity to help you discover God’s best for you is more fun!

Adventurer – While I don’t climb mountains or deep sea dive, I enjoy an exciting life for Jesus! I choose to live beyond my comfort zone by inviting God to take the lead in my story. It can be scary, but it’s worth it to make this one life truly matter for eternity!

My belief is that you are the Leading Lady of your own story. I’m here to help you make the most of it by pursuing God’s purposes through relationships. I’d love to guide you along your Path to Purpose so you can enjoy a more meaningful and fulfilling life! Let’s alter our stories to change the world!
