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!

  • 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!

  • 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
  • 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 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 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.

    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 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
  • 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
  • Israel Wayne's workshop challenged us as Full-Time Parents! Great workshop!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • I came last year and loved it, and it was even better this year!

    2014 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
  • 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
  • Please tell me there will be a Teach Them Diligently convention next year!!! I was so very BLESSED this year!

    2012 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!

    2015 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Have had a tremendous time at the Teach Them Diligently Convention. So grateful for men of God such as Ken Ham who are not afraid to proclaim the Word!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • Already planning for next year!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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 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
  • 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
  • I loved everything! I especially loved the emphasis on Christ in everything! There were plenty of speakers and topics to choose from. I loved the women's prayer time. It was so encouraging!

    2014 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
  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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! :)

  • 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
  • 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
  • Mrs. Sally Clarkson spoke from her heart tonight at the Teach Them Diligently Conference. Moms heart matters its my child's classroom. What I pour into myself my children can withdrawal. My children can not grow spiritually unless my focus is On The Lord. A mom has the opportunity to change the world through education!! Can't accomplish that in the flesh. Created in the image of Christ. All ability needed is already provided through a surrendered life. In the photo is her blogs. Thank you Mrs. Clarkson.

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • I am so EXCITED about TTD because when you pack that many people who are PASSIONATE ABOUT FOLLOWING THE LORD, the atmosphere is so PEACEFUL and LOVING and ENERGIZING!

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Please tell me there will be a Teach Them Diligently convention next year!!! I was so very BLESSED this year!

    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!
