My Promise My Faith Awards
All Girl Scouts promise TO SERVE GOD.
Girl Scouts encourages girls to grow in their religious beliefs by earning Religious Recognitions offered by their faith communities and by earning the My Promise, My Faith pin, which helps a girl strengthen the connection between the Girl Scout Law and her faith.
While Girl Scouts is a secular organization, Girl Scouts of The USA has always encouraged girls to take spiritual journeys via their faiths' religious recognitions. Girl Scouts recognizes that religious instruction must come from the family and faith community.
Attached is information regarding the GS My Promise My Faith pin, this is a pin that can be earned each year. The girls choose a line of the GS Law and research information and ways these lines are part of their families lives. Do not let the name including " My Faith" lead you to believe that you must suddenly teach religious ideas or think your troop is going to begin teaching them. Your Faith and what you choose and introduce is up to you as the parents. If you are interested in learning what religious recognitions are available see P.R.A.Y Pub the organization.
Created by national religious organizations to encourage the spiritual growth of youth members, religious recognition programs reinforce many of the values integral to Girl Scouting and help girls grow stronger in and learn more about their chosen faith.
Each religious organization develops and administers its own program. The brochure "To Serve God" (PDF) lists the religious recognitions created by various faith groups.
