Why is this important? Religious recognitions are created by the national religious bodies. MPMF Impact Girls – Girls will see how the Girl Scout Law is connected to their faith. Leaders - MPMF helps ADULTS to make the connection between Girl Scouting and faith. Councils - MPMF can strengthen the partnership between the local Girl Scout council and the faith community.
