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!

  • 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
  • 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 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!

    2012 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 really enjoyed Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies. She was so encouraging and helped me to realize that the Devil will pull me away from motherhood at every opportunity. It was all stuff I knew but hearing in a new way really convicted me.

    2015 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
  • 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!

    2014 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!!!

  • 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

    2015 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
  • Inspiring weekend! Already looking forward to next year!

    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.

    2014 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention
  • I liked the variety of options. I loved the special needs focus, so fantastic for the mother of a dyslexic. I also liked that after a session on special needs I could concentrate on discipleship or raising sons, so many important topics and I need them all!

    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.

  • 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
  • While the godly speakers and huge vendor hall will be WONDERFUL, I am most looking forward to the FELLOWSHIP with other home school families. It is a BLESSING to meet up with old friends and make new ones who all desire to train their child in the ways of the Lord.

    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
  • The speakers. I truly heard God speaking to me through them. I wish I had attended a conference earlier in my homeschooling journey!!

  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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

    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

    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!

    2014 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
  • Loved your speakers and the chance to visit with vendors and missions. We left feeling very informed and empowered to start our first year of homeschooling.

    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
  • 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 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!

    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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!
