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!

  • Thank you, Teach Them Diligently family! The LORD USED this BLESSED weekend to encourage me through my homeschooling journey. Thursday was a breaking point for me. I was completely ready to throw in the homeschool towel! GOD USED many speakers, vendors and new homeschooling friends to ENCOURAGE me not to give up! It is not by my might but by HIS POWER! Thank you and God bless!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • 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!!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Wow, could go on for days about all my husband & I learned & how excited we were to discuss the sessions at the end with each other. Wonderful, thank you very much for all the hard work that went into planning this event!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I really enjoyed Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies. She was so encouraging and helped me to realize that the Devil will pull me away from motherhood at every opportunity. It was all stuff I knew but hearing in a new way really convicted me.

    2015 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
  • The breadth of amazing speakers; the welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere; the focus on Jesus; and the huge Expo Hall.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • The eternal value of what has been taught so far this weekend is infinitely worth more than I've paid. To see where we have been idolizing ourselves and not leading our families focused on the Gospel, and not performance, will lead to generational impacts in our family! Thank you for having these conferences!

    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
  • 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
  • Mr. Todd Friel's session on parenting....wow!!!! I laughed. I cried. I can't wait until tomorrow. Praise God for this convention.

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I've been reading so many wonderful comments from others about encouragement they received at The Teach Them Diligently Convention in Nashville this weekend and I want to add my voice to theirs! It was an absolute God-send for me! I can't begin to explain the kind of help and encouragement I received. I know that so much prayer and effort and hard work, (most of it unseen by anyone but God,) goes into an event like this. But please know how deeply it is appreciated. God used you to bless SO MANY this weekend! Thank you and God bless you all...

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Once again, we came away refreshed and renewed just by the godly, high energy atmosphere, not to mention the amazing sessions. Can't wait until TTD 2016!!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • While the godly speakers and huge vendor hall will be WONDERFUL, I am most looking forward to the FELLOWSHIP with other home school families. It is a BLESSING to meet up with old friends and make new ones who all desire to train their child in the ways of the Lord.

    2012 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • A convention where I knew that I was surrounded by like-minded parents, speakers and vendors! I got almost as much out of all the moms I talked with as the presentations I went to! SO worth the money, time and effort.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • The focus on the importance of a foundation in God for homeschooling. Not in my strength can homeschooling be what it is meant to be for the future of my children; it's God's strength that brings success

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I just want to say how much my 2 older kids (almost 12 and 13) loved the youth program. They are still talking about it. My kids were very impressed with Bob Jones and Liberty. Thankful for what they did for our kids.

    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
  • We had a wonderful time this weekend and thought you did a great job with the conference. It truly blessed our family and renewed our spirit; it was just what we needed.

    2013 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
  • I couldn't possibly pick just one thing:) I loved meeting like-minded friends, hearing the Word and homeschool encouragement, shopping for curriculum. My kids would say their favorite is the ULTRA playground as they call it. They also loved all the cool boy toys!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • 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
  • 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
  • Wow. You all improved on last year (which was already excellent) in every way. The children's program was MILES better than last year. The speakers were top notch and are affecting a great work in my heart and mind for being a better woman, wife, mom and teacher! Esther Wilkinson, Mark Hamby, Debra Bell, Heidi St. John, and Todd Friel were the stand-outs for me this year, but ALL were good. The Vendor area being open in the mornings before sessions was helpful for extra shopping time. It was better than I hoped, and I had high hopes! Thank-you! Once again, I already look forward to next year!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • By far, the BEST convention I have ever attended! Just want to share a testimony. My teenage son began the weekend with the attitude that he did NOT come to the convention to hear anyone talk. By the end of the weekend, he had attended almost every session by Ken Ham and was inspired by the question/answer session with the media track speakers! He COULDN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT IT the whole way home! Praise God! Thank you for all your hard work to put the conference together!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I am one of those supportive but a little reluctant dads. I came with an open mind but not sure what to expect. I LEFT BLOWN AWAY. I left with more than just an impact on my homeschooling convictions but also left SPIRITUALLY-STIRRED. The speakers I heard were all EXCELLENT. I was so IMPRESSED with the FRIENDLINESS of everybody there and how well behaved all the kids seemed to be. Without hesistance I will be back next year. Wonderful job.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I am home now after a GREAT 3 days at the Teach Them Diligently Convention. It was such a BLESSING to be part of such an AMAZING convention. This is definitely a convention you MUST attend next year.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Many told me that they had life-changing encounters with the Lord. One woman remarked, "The Lord saved my marriage through the message I heard today." I certainly don't know the whole story, but let's now give praise and glory to God thru Jesus Christ for His grace and presence. Thank you. If I could listen to Todd Friel, Ken Ham, Israel Wayne, and Carol Barnier all day, I would never have a discouraging moment! I'm getting all of their lectures on audio so I can listen constantly in my car.

    2015 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Soooo enjoyed seeing "old" friends, meeting new ones, and discussing the incredible options available to all parents. Thank you to ALL exhibitors, speakers, and parents for making this such a wonderful conference! = )

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • For those of you in one of the classes with Carol Barnier- I laughed so hard this morning when Zach fell out of his chair finally knowing I am not the only one!

    2015 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

  • Thank you Teach Them Diligently Convention for a wonderful weekend. Heading home now encouraged and refreshed to see our sweet little ones. Already looking forward to next year!!!

    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.

    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

    2012 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

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • We love the focus on family and my husband really appreciated the men's focus this year. The session by Alex Kendrick for men only touched the depths of his soul. He said they ended up having an impromptu prayer session with all the men on their knees. He came out in tears. Loved the Getty's concert.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I came last year and loved it, and it was even better this year!

    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.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Wow, could go on for days about all my husband & I learned & how excited we were to discuss the sessions at the end with each other. Wonderful, thank you very much for all the hard work that went into planning this event!
