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!

  • 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! :)

  • 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!!

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

    2013 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
  • Already planning for next year!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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 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
  • 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'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
  • 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! 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
  • 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
  • Standing room only at "The Encouraging Husband". Even the floor is full! Truly a good sign!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • The Bible saturated and Christ focused aspect of everything

    2014 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.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

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

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

    2012 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Great weekend! Blessed and informed more than I ever expected.

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Really?!? Everything! The variety in the sessions offered was outstanding! My husband was able to attend some that were just for him, and one about adoption (which we have been praying about for a while). I feel renewed spiritually, and encouraged in this calling. I can't pick one thing!

    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

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

    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
  • 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
  • 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.
