We believe in the
POWER OF COMMUNITY

Join the nextTalk movement.

You need a village.

Groups can look and be different! The key is that we all need help and support on the journey of parenting. Here are a few ways you can get connected or use our nextTalk resources for your group.

  • nextTalk hosts structured online parenting groups every fall and spring. Registration is announced in our newsletter and on social media at the beginning of each semester. SEE BELOW FOR NEW SPRING GROUPS!
  • When we speak at Christian churches and schools, groups are often launched after the event to go through our 9-week video study. This keeps the conversation going and establishes a support group in your own community.
  • If you want to go through our faith-based video study with a few friends at any time, it’s easy to watch the 30-min video on your own and then meet for coffee or hop on a Zoom to discuss.
  • We have some parents who listen to our new podcast content each week and then meet in-person or use an online platform to discuss (for example, you could use a closed Facebook group, a group text, Zoom, etc.)
 

At the end of the day, we want you to find support and encouragement from the people around you. Together, we can be empowered and tackle the challenges of keeping our kids safe in a digital world!

Kim Nichols’ Book Study
Our team member wrote a new book!!! Kim Nichols will walk you through her newly released book about fear and parenting in all ages and stages. 

Kim is a survivor of sexual abuse. When her daughter asked to sleep over at a friend’s house, Kim froze in their kitchen because she had so much fear! Whether you are an abuse survivor or not, sometimes fear takes over. We want you to overcome the urge to hover so you can form a healthy relationship with your kids!
