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!!

    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
  • 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
  • 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

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

    2014 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

    2013 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!

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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!

    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

    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!

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you Leslie and crew!! This was my husband's first one (outside of a quick trip to the vendor hall on a Saturday last year since we're local). He's hooked! We are booked for next year too!

    2015 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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!

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

    2012 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!

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

    2013 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
  • 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! = )

    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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!!
