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!

  • 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
  • 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 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
  • Speakers were great, exhibit hall was great, hotel was great. My sons could not wait to get to their sessions everyday! They loved it!!

    2014 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Already planning for next year!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • So needed Carol Barnier’s session on the highly distractable mom! Enjoyed the encouragement so much! It was humorous how much she described me.

    2015 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Israel Wayne's workshop challenged us as Full-Time Parents! Great workshop!

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

    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 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
  • 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
  • Thank you Teach Them Diligently Convention for a wonderful weekend. Heading home now encouraged and refreshed to see our sweet little ones. 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Great weekend! Blessed and informed more than I ever expected.

    2015 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
  • My friends and I definitely want to return next year to the TTD conference. I can’t tell you how much we learned and how grateful we are to you all for the work you do.

    2015 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.

    2015 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
  • 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 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 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
  • 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.
