Real Kids Real Faith is reimagining how children’s spirituality looks, sounds, and acts in this moment.

Our Vision

Growing up human today means facing big challenges and high expectations. So we’re rethinking how to help children respond creatively to whatever life brings their way.

Children’s spiritual lives don’t come prepackaged, but are stitched together by snuggles on the sofa, tears over a lost lovey, and gaming with friends next door. Their spirituality is also shaped by a parent’s job loss, learning challenges, and allergies that mean nobody else can have peanut butter.

The good, the bad, the really hard – it affects a child’s spirit. And we’ll address it all.

The ideas you’ll find here are research-based, motivated by a desire to see kids flourish in significant ways. This is important work, best done together. We’re glad you’ve joined us.
