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!

  • 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!

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Inspiring weekend! Already looking forward to next year!

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

    2013 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
  • 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
  • Already planning for next year!

    2013 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • Thank you SO much for putting this on! I know it took a lot of work! My husband and I were totally encouraged and came away tremendously BLESSED and INSPIRED!! We will definitely be back next year and bring our kids.

    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 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 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
  • Had a friend that attended last year, she told me how fabulous it was...but you really have to experience it for yourself!

    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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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!!

    2015 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 Bible saturated and Christ focused aspect of everything

    2014 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 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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

    2015 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
  • 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

    2012 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 loved the focus on parenting our children's hearts and being reminded that our first priority is not their education, but their discipleship.

    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!

    2015 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!
