What is Real Woman?

REAL Woman is an independent, Christian organization that exists to equip and encourage women to be who God has created them to be. We do this by providing resources, opportunities, and tools to learn about and share God’s Word. Any woman who desires to learn more about her value and purpose is encouraged to join us on the REAL Woman journey!
