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!

  • 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!!!

  • 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!

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

    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

    2014 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 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!

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

    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • What an amazing time! And what a blessing!!!!! Thank you so much for organizing this event.... We leave refreshed, energized, encouraged, sometimes "convicted", excited -- and waiting for next year!!!! I was especially encouraged by Shirley Solis and my husband, Andy, was really impressed with Mike Snavely. Andy said he recommends for Mike to be given a larger room because many people were turned away -- and DEFINITELY invite him back again to speak! Thank you again for Teach Them Diligently!!!! Looking forward to next year!

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

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

    2013 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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!!

  • 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
  • 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!
