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, 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!

  • I was convicted and encouraged by Rachael Carmen's session on doubt and how we should be doing our Bible work first and what that tells the kids when we push academics ahead of God's Word. So, we sat down as soon as we got home and cracked open Who Is God? that I bought from Apologia LAST year. The kids were quiet, listened, and interacted! Yay! I'm very encouraged, even if it was tough getting back to the "real" world. Anyone else up for sharing how God spoke to you through the sessions this weekend?

    2015 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.

    2013 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
  • I am so looking forward to attending next year's convention. The 2012 convention was WONDERFUL and so IMPRESSIVE for it's first year. I'M SURE 2013 WILL BE EVEN BETTER!

    2012 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 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Excellent presentation by Sonya Shafer on Looking Past the Fear. Thank you!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • 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'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
  • 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
  • That's hard, because I loved ALL of it. The workshops were SO encouraging. The prices and sales on the books were awesome. And the fact that the speakers were so personal and real. Getting to talk with them in person, and not just be lectured. Wow. It was such a blessing to my heart to be there all weekend!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • We got so much out of last year's conference. Our whole family has EXPERIENCED SO MUCH SPIRITUAL GROWTH as we use the resources we found there to walk closer to the Lord. We are so LOOKING FORWARD to LEARNING and being ENCOURAGED more.

    2012 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 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
  • 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.

    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
  • 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
  • It was, by far, THE BEST convention I've ever attended!!! No detail was left out! I came away with a wealth of knowledge about the Lord and how to better teach my boys!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Oh I had an awesome time. I'm overwhelmed with the way I feel God moving the homeschoolers to share the truth of God's word.
    I went there thinking I needed to get a math program from my kids but left feeling like I'd been to revival. Thank you so much for the great speakers.

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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.

    2015 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
  • The sessions!! There where so many wonderful ones to choose from. All of the speakers I saw where passionate and informative. They were willing to hang around and answer questions or pray with the attendees. I felt like I was surrounded by godly wisdom and was so very blessed.

    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Thanks for a great convention! We really enjoyed hearing so many wonderful speakers. Our kids were apprehensive about participating in the children's program, but they loved it!

    2013 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
  • 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!

    2015 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
  • Thanks so much to General Matt and crew, our 5 year old had an amazing time and is sharing all he learned with us.

    2013 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
  • We had a life changing experience and absolutely loved the convention. We are making plans to attend next year's convention as well and bring many friends with us!!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Trying to decide which of the many blessings to share. I think realizing my child isn't broken just because he can't sit still, can't look someone in the eye. He isn't broken because he had ADHD tendencies.

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • He certainly did give me a JOYOUS time with my daughters. I guess most every homeschooling family gets a case of the February doldrums each year, and we certainly had a good case of it in our house this year. We did a girls' trip to this conference, and I got to have so much fun WITH my girls on the way here and while here. If you've ever traveled a significant distance as a solo adult with multiple kids, you know that it COULD have been a misery. So I'm attributing the terrific time we had to the hand of God!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • The countdown was on when the dates were released! It's already on all my calendars and I CAN'T WAIT to head to Nashville this year because our family needs the time of ENCOURAGEMENT and TEACHING. We LOVED Spartanburg and are EXCITED about what God is doing for each location!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thanks so much to General Matt and crew, our 5 year old had an amazing time and is sharing all he learned with us.

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention

    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
  • What a beautiful lady Mrs. Pam Tebow is as she shares her love for The Lord and her family. Jesus love shines on her face from a close walk with her Saviour. Enjoyed her speaking tonight at the Teach Them Diligently conference. Exactly what I needed to hear from The Lord tonight.

    2013 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 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
  • 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
  • Swing and a HIT Benham Brothers! Thanks for pinch-hitting today!!It was our first conference and we registered for 2016 while there! Even with minor hiccups, we (all five members of my family) learned so much and are refreshed to finish out the year!! Thank you, thank you!!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • It was, by far, THE BEST convention I've ever attended!!! No detail was left out! I came away with a wealth of knowledge about the Lord and how to better teach my boys!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I love that every speaker truly speaks from the Teach Them Diligently philosophy. Each one I listened to emphasized that God is the one leading our home schools. Love that!
