Titus 2:3-5

We are a group of R.E.A.L women that have a passion to build intentional connections with one another focused around our faith in Jesus Christ, and our desire to honor and serve Him with our whole lives. We know that relationship with one another is a vital part of living out our faith, so our desire is to create opportunities to be a R.E.A.L. woman fostering Relationship, Encouragement, Accountability, and Love!

We accomplish this by offering weekly Bible studies, events to deepen and grow in our faith and community with one another, and life-journey specific gatherings meant to encourage you where you are.

We're excited to do life together!

Mom to Mom

Moms of Diverse Backgrounds, Churches, & Communities

We are women of diverse backgrounds from many different churches and communities all over the Lodi area who have children of all ages (infancy through high school).  Though at various stages of parenting, we share a common desire to grow as women and as mothers.


Our mission is to educate, encourage, and equip women for the most important yet toughest job in all the world - parenting. Through practical, Biblically-based teaching on parenting and through supportive interaction in small groups led by experienced mentor moms who follow the Titus 2:4 model in the New Testament, we wish to foster growth, not only in our parenting skills, but in our wholeness as women - intellectually, relationally, and spiritually.  

Titus 2:3-5

"Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children,  to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God."




Inside Out Parenting: A Mom's Mission is a biblically based curriculum designed to take a close look at what God's Word has to say about our mission as moms—and what that looks like for 21st-century moms. As we explore God's Word together, we will gain godly mom-confidence in a confused world, learn to create contagious Christian community amidst a chaotic culture, and grow in our ability to build Christlike character in our kids.
