Altered Stories Show

Altered Stories Show

The Altered Stories Ministry Christian Women’s talk show podcast was started by host Mischelle Saunders-Gottsch, CEO/ Founder of Altered Stories Ministry (www.alteredstories.org). This podcast exists to help women share their God glorifying stories so women across the world can hear them and be encouraged in their faith, emotionally healed or brought into a relationship with Jesus Christ. The evangelistic commission of the podcast aligns with scripture, Luke 8:39 (NIV) “Return home and tell how much God has done for you. So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for his life.”
