Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention

Homeschool Convention EventsThe Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention is a Christian homeschool convention that celebrates the focus of Christian home education — that is, the discipleship of children to glorify God. More than simply a convention about home education, we purposefully develop the themes of Missions, discipleship, and Christian parenting in addition to the traditional academic "how-to’s."

We believe home education is a form of ministry. Whether we realize it or not, we reproduce who we are in our children, and consequently, homeschool families have a constant need for renewal and encouragement in Christ. This is the reason for Christian homeschool conventions; at least, this is the reason for the Teach Them Diligently Convention.

You'll find the convention to be a waterfall of enrichment and encouragement in Christ, and a re-focus toward discipleship. We invite such speakers as Voddie Baucham, Ken Ham, Carol Barnier, Chuck Black, Rachael Carman, Debra Bell, Crystal Paine, and many others to minister to the homeschool families at our homeschool conventions in Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio and Texas.

If you are a Christian homeschool family, this is the convention you want to attend. Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention is an experience that you don't want to miss, and built for the entire family!

  • Wow-- not sure I can adequately describe the encouragement and support this new to homeschool mom received at TTD!! I kept messaging my husband telling him he HAS to come next year!! I was shocked at all we got out of the workshops and so much that had little to do with homeschool and so much to do with serving Him!!!! Thank you especially to Karen DeBeus,Kendra Fletcher, Todd Friel, David and Jason Benham, and others for their wisdom and willingness to help those just beginning our journey to leave inspired and ready to tackle this new challenge!! It may not look like my pinterest board, but our homeschool will reflect Him and that's all that matters!!

  • After an awesome weekend at TTD we came home to finalize our son’s adoption. We have had him since he was a baby. He is now 5! We had a few issues along the way. He is officially ours today. We are so blessed.

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I was blessed, challenged, and changed by my weekend at the Teach Them Diligently Convention! Each workshop I attended spoke directly to my heart - SO glad I came!!!!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • It was an AMAZING weekend. I feel renewed and rejuvenated. I pray blessings on you as you prepare for the next three TTD still to come. My 15 year-old daughter just shared the Gospel with an inquisitive mom of a special-needs child who had to know what "all this homeschooling business" was about. Apparently, she had been watching all the homeschoolers at the Gaylord and decided Bre Elise was unintimidating enough to approach.

  • Mark Hamby's session on the Strong-Willed Parent will shock you, move you, and have you in tears. But if you have a child you butt heads with, and learn that they are not the only strong-willed one in the house, this is for you. God spoke to me so much through Rachael Carman, as well - "That Child" and "How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You." Also Carol Barnier. Oh, and of course, Ken Ham was amazing!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • This was our 3rd homeschool conference and by far, the BEST one yet!!! Thank you for all your hard work in putting this conference together! We will be coming back next year!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you for putting on such a Godly convention! We left the convention on day 3 and went to Walmart, I immediately felt the difference between the Godly fellowship of the convention and feeling like the minority in the world. There is something so amazing when you draw together like-minded people who love the Lord and their families, thank you for putting so much work into TTD! :)

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Everything was amazing!! I loved it all, you guys did an amazing job! WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL job, and we are already making plans to come back next year!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Our second year at TTD and we are already planning for next year. I am so uplifted and ready to turn the world upside down with my 3 little world changers. Thank you, thank you, thank you for an amazing experience, and all the extra hard work you do. We could never tell you what this week does for our family.

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Inspiring weekend! Already looking forward to next year!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Wow! I don't know how to narrow it down. :) I think coming home more inspired and encouraged to keep going on this path was priceless. The speakers I heard were just what I needed to hear.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you for a wonderful conference and for modeling grace under pressure. I know there were some hiccups (always will be when an event this size takes place) but always pointing us to God and His sovereignty has been a blessing. Our tank is full! Thank you!!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Excellent presentation by Sonya Shafer on Looking Past the Fear. Thank you!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • My family and I had a wonderful time at TTD Nashville. It was a great environment, and the speakers kept it Christ-centered.

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I liked that it was affordable. It made it reasonable for the family to drive from Florida. I liked meeting other people and seeing where they were from. I like that I could buy all the recorded sessions so that when my little one was sick and fussy, I didn't stress about not making it to the session. I liked the restless toddler room!!!! :D

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • AFFORDABILITY, how easy it was to find a hotel through all of the preconvention info, how close it was to the highway. That and, of course, the FELLOWSHIP with other likeminded families! :)

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Loved your speakers and the chance to visit with vendors and missions. We left feeling very informed and empowered to start our first year of homeschooling.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • The encouragement! The sessions! I learned so much instead of feeling like I am failing, I came home feeling on top of the world. I liked EVERYTHING about the conference and can't wait for next year. I already have it on my calendar.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • The speakers. I truly heard God speaking to me through them. I wish I had attended a conference earlier in my homeschooling journey!!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I'm so EXCITED to meet up with dear friends and meet new ones! We feel so LOVED and ACCEPTED at the Teach Them Diligently conventions! What we learned from the speakers last March has drastically changed how we homeschool :)

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you SO much for putting this on! I know it took a lot of work! My husband and I were totally encouraged and came away tremendously BLESSED and INSPIRED!! We will definitely be back next year and bring our kids.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I have had a rough year, and this conference was exactly what I needed to get my focus back on the things that matter most. Thank you for blessing those who attend.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Standing room only at "The Encouraging Husband". Even the floor is full! Truly a good sign!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I want to thank you for a wonderful conference! My daughter enjoyed the teen program and I was impressed with the all-around spirit of the conference. It was so nice to catch snippets of the speakers as we relaxed to eat our lunch. Also, I was encouraged by some wonderful young people that I met. What a blessing to talk with teens who are sold out to Christ!! Moms and Dads, you're doing a great job, and I know you were re-fueled this weekend!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • My special blessing this year? God clearly answered my prayer for a door to be shut... a door that I have been cracking open and peeking around for a couple of years. Part of this was because my hubby came and we had time to talk, think, and refocus on HOW God has could us to do our particular homeschool. I am so glad to move forward refocused, refreshed, and ready to roll!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Excitement was flying high at our house as everyone was packing and getting ready for the next two days of convention! I must say, we are all excited! This tired, burned-out mamma really needs this about now! Just what we need to boost us on for our last several weeks of school!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you for all the evident hard work that went into a fantastic convention! It was like a marriage retreat, parenting conference, and homeschooling convention all rolled into one! We were blessed in SO many ways.

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I give God praise for your conference! I learned so much and was refreshed and encouraged in every area of my life. Fabulous speakers! I so need this time every year to recharge for this homeschooling journey. Thank you!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • What an amazing time! And what a blessing!!!!! Thank you so much for organizing this event.... We leave refreshed, energized, encouraged, sometimes "convicted", excited -- and waiting for next year!!!! I was especially encouraged by Shirley Solis and my husband, Andy, was really impressed with Mike Snavely. Andy said he recommends for Mike to be given a larger room because many people were turned away -- and DEFINITELY invite him back again to speak! Thank you again for Teach Them Diligently!!!! Looking forward to next year!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Wide range of speakers. I felt renewed in my vision to homeschool. I came away with incredibly helpful ideas, some of which I've already implemented. In addition, I felt like I got a marriage seminar and homeschool seminar in one

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you for all the work that went into the Conference this year. I came tired, a little discouraged and ready for school to be over. I left excited, encouraged and my cup was full to overflowing. This was our 2nd year and it was such a blessing like last year. Please keep up the great work of helping parents do what God has placed on our hearts to do. Thank you, thank you, Thank you.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I came to convention last year burned out with lots of questions about whether I was doing the right thing for my family. GOD SHOWED UP! Our family left BLESSED REFRESHED. It is MORE THAN A CONVENTION... it is a ministry!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Christian focus. Very encouraging. Variety of topics. It's not just focused on homeschooling - it focuses on parenting, marriage, health, business, Christian living.

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Learning how to minister to my children in my own home. I wish that I could have learned some of these things years ago. It was wonderful to be with a group of people who have the same goal of raising their children for Christ.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I may need a day to decompress and process all that I've learned and been convicted of this weekend. God spoke to me much more about the Non-Homeschooling One than the Homeschooling One at the homeschool convention. And I had the best talk with him at bedtime tonight. I'm so thankful for Mark Hamby, Rachael Carman, and Carol Barnier sharing their stories and the Word of God..

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • 1st year, mind blown!! God put HS on my heart years ago and these past few days used TTD to convict me and solidify all His gentle nudges for our family. I'm definitely an overwhelmed and tired preggo but the excitement, preparedness, confidence, and solidification of His calling for our family, cover it all! Our first turns 6 this summer and our fun will begin for 3 babies! I absolutely recommend Sonya Shafers "5 flavors" for anyone new. It immediately lead me in the right direction for us and I now have a "plan"! God is in the details and TTD provides Him an avenue to feed them to you! I have a thankful overflowing heart! Thanks TTD!

  • I have had a rough year, and this conference was exactly what I needed to get my focus back on the things that matter most. Thank you for blessing those who attend.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I'm excited about the unexpected WISDOM to be gained at the TTD conventions. The nutrition track was a blessing to our family! We are grinding our wheat and loving the many wonderful foods we enjoy every day. I'M ALMOST 20 POUNDS LIGHTER and continuing to make improvements to our family's food choices.

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I liked the variety of options. I loved the special needs focus, so fantastic for the mother of a dyslexic. I also liked that after a session on special needs I could concentrate on discipleship or raising sons, so many important topics and I need them all!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I thoroughly ENJOYED seeing and hearing the children and babies AND seeing the dynamics of families! :D Being ENCOURAGED to be DILIGENT in teaching and asking the Lord to help me be more so. Thank you to all the speakers and vendors, as well who helped to make this my very FAVORITE conference! Can't wait for the mp3s of the sessions to arrive so I can listen to ALL the ones I missed!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I loved the focus on parenting our children's hearts and being reminded that our first priority is not their education, but their discipleship.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Christian focus. Very encouraging. Variety of topics. It's not just focused on homeschooling - it focuses on parenting, marriage, health, business, Christian living.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • But the entire thing was so inspiring and I had forgotten what it was like to be surrounded with other homeschoolers. It was almost culture shock when I got back to my church!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Never in a million years would have thought my heart could be touched as deeply as it was...truly amazing!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you SO much for putting this on! I know it took a lot of work! My husband and I were totally encouraged and came away tremendously BLESSED and INSPIRED!! We will definitely be back next year and bring our kids.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I knew it was going to be great, however I wasn't sure how the organization would be, considering the size. It surpassed all of my expectations and we will be back next year! Thank you!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Quite simply the GREATEST Homeschool Convention available that shares our biblical worldview and offers the encouragement we need for homeschooling our teenagers... So glad we found you!!!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • So needed Carol Barnier’s session on the highly distractable mom! Enjoyed the encouragement so much! It was humorous how much she described me.

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Speakers were great, exhibit hall was great, hotel was great. My sons could not wait to get to their sessions everyday! They loved it!!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • So ... I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT UNTIL MAY!!! Prayerfully, nothing will come up this year. We are so LOOKING FORWARD to being with LIKE-MINDED people and being ENCOURAGED in our homeschool journey.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Does anyone else wake up having that sad camp feeling? I was so blessed here, coming back home and seeing my parents I don't want to leave. I pray for those that are feeling the same way. Thank you again for everything, TTD.
