Branson Convention Center | May 16th - 18th, 2024
For the past 13 years, Teach Them Diligently has worked to focus families on the Kingdom impact of the work they do within their homes every single day. We believe that as believers, we are all called to share Jesus’ love and make disciples everywhere we go, and for Christian parents, the Great Commission Begins At Home. Your mission is to bring your children to Jesus and to prepare them well to follow Him all their days. Home education is a great tool for accomplishing that mission as it gives you time, conversations, and intentionality. That’s why this year’s theme for our events and through our media all year long will focus on the fact that our Mission is Greater. It’s greater than curriculum, co-op, academics, influence, worksheets, finances, health struggles—and even our own limitations—because the One Who has called us is greater! Join us in Pigeon Forge, TN for a celebration of our mission and a focus on the fact that we can trust God’s great plan for our families as we seek Him day by day.

Why Should You Attend Our Homeschool Convention?
Get Actionable Answers and Ideas.
Enjoy 3 days of Education and Fun with your Family.
Families who attend homeschool conventions and are engaging in community groups are more likely to continue homeschooling and to do it more effectively than those who don’t.
Teach Them Diligently has been producing homeschool events for 12 years. These events have become a highlight of the year for the thousands of families who attend.
See What Others Like You Are Saying.....
I can say that this conference is doing more than helping homeschools. It is changing lives. Please do not ever stop.
You reach out to the family, in all of its various stages, with open arms. The goal is to educate/enlighten and equip. Delivery and follow through of offerings is superb. ORGANIZATION is on point!
I feel like as a parent and homeschool teacher I heard things I’ve never heard before. I was so thankful for all the scriptures that were shared and that that was the real foundation for it all!
These 3 days are marked off on our calendar like Christmas. It is a time of much needed renewal and encouragement. The Lord showed us opened doors for ministry while we were at the conference.

Why this theme for 2023?
For the last 11 years, Teach Them Diligently events and resources have focused on the HEART of our homeschool, and we’ve stood in awe as God has transformed families by opening their eyes to the incredible importance of what they do every single day within their homes. By prioritizing discipleship, relationships, and giving our children a foundation for their faith that will hold no matter what craziness the world tries to push on them, we are truly preparing them for success no matter what God calls them to do in the days ahead. Time after time, we’ve heard from families whose lives have been transformed as they’ve realized the importance of their mission and re-aligned their thinking to fit that.
Homeschooling for the heart of your children is a lifestyle choice that goes well beyond a mere educational decision. It can strengthen your family, give increased confidence, and bring peace to your days. We believe in the method so much in fact that we’ve coined the phrase “Heart Schoolers” to identify those of us who prioritize discipleship and allow that to drive our educational efforts. Heart Schooling prioritizes the hearts in children. When priorities are in line, hearts are won, academic excellence is achieved as love of learning increases, and confidence grows in children and parents alike. It truly is the unexpected intersection of great parenting and excellent home education. By the time this year is over, I pray that your family, like ours, will happily identify as Heart Schoolers and that you too will enjoy the incredible life Heart Schooling affords.
You’ll find that the secret to becoming a true Heart School family and enjoying the lifestyle that comes along with that is to change the central focus of your homeschool. We invite you to check out Leslie’s newest book, Homeschool with Heart: How Amazing Parents Become Excellent Home Educators to really dive into what we’re talking about and then join us in Teach Them Diligently 365 all year long and at an event this season to get even more encouragement and helps for your family to adopt this life-giving way to homeschool.
