Build Rock-Solid Family Relationships

What is the focus of this event?

This event provides the unique opportunity to be strengthened not only by the sessions given by our fantastic speakers but also to be uplifted and encouraged by fellowship with fellow homeschool parents, plus there is just nothing like a live event. Don’t start your school year before attending this event!

Why is this event valuable to homeschool families?

We are focusing on strengthening homeschool families as they begin this school year. As Homeschoolers we have the opportunity to disciple and teach our children in a way that others may not. Which makes it all the more important that we know What we are doing; How we should be doing it; and What we stand to gain by doing it.

Why does it have to be a face to face event?

There is just no substitute for the energy that radiates from a live event. The connections you make and the experience a live event provides can not be matched. People are meant to be with people. We learn and encourage best when we are with a community in-person.

Why does it matter that the videos are recorded live before an audience? 

If you can not make it to the live in-person event, the next best thing is watching the livestream of the speakers on stage. This is not a collection of info provided across a desk on a Zoom call. The live stream will be from stage in front of a live audience. The delivery from the speakers and the energy from the audience can not be matched, and you will benefit even while watching from home.

Why these speakers? 

Each speaker touches on a specific aspect of homeschooling and family that when put together will thoroughly equip parents to strengthen their families. As you will see from our speaking schedule—which can be seen on this webpage—the speakers address reaching the heart of your families as well as the day to day function of running a homeschool successfully.

Can we watch with friends? 

What a great idea!! Gather some friends together to make an event out of the live streams. You’ll get the same benefit of fellowship and fun that can be found in Greenville. You will all want to have a ticket, though, so you have access to the recordings in the days ahead.

1000 Hours Outside

Hi! I’m Ginny.  My husband Josh and I are parents to five children ages 12 and under and we reside in Southeast Michigan.  Throughout our journey of parenthood we have consistently seen city, county, and state parks, as well as trails, campsites, and nature-scapes in general, nearly devoid of children most of the time. About five years ago we started to ask ourselves a simple question: Why? With so much natural beauty all around us (even though we take it for granted at times) it seemed counterintuitive that so many outdoor spaces were just empty.

With that question of “why” still unanswered, we did some research and read that striving for a goal of 4-6 hours of outside time within a day (what!?!?) was an ideal amount of time for children to spend, well, outside. This seemed excessive to us and quite frankly, way too long – most children’s activities are at most an hour (like a library program) and, many times, much less. BUT, we tried it. And you know what? We have not looked back. Our greatest times as a family, and my most successful times mothering almost exclusively point back to these fully immersive nature days. In time, we began to find that there is benefit upon benefit to this wonderful time outside.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our goal is to make each conference an informative and
valuable event for you.

The live event will start at 9am and end at 6:30pm. You can find the specific event schedule on the event page once it is released.

Yes, you can add them for an additional $15.00 to any in-person ticket.

Besides the obvious video feed vs in-person experience, we are live-streaming only one session per hour. The livestream will provide access to all three events, but only one room per hour. This means that we will rotate sessions at each of the TTD Live Events so there shouldn’t be any duplicate sessions livestreamed. Plus, you will have access for 60 days to all livestream sessions to watch at your convenience.

Our TTD Greenville and TTD Cedarville events will be hosted on college campuses. You can purchase a meal at their dining hall, or you can go off campus to nearby restaurants.

We will not have any discounted room blocks, so you can book a room at any local hotel that suites your needs best.

TTD Live is designed for adults only for mom and/or dad to take a day away from everyday life and be encouraged. We suggest you get childcare for the day. Infants are welcomed at no additional cost. If you bring older children, each of them will require a ticket to the event.

This event will focus on encouraging and challenging parents. At this time of year, it’s easy to get mired in the day to day activities of homeschooling and life in general. We hope this day of refreshment will help to refocus you on the importance of your mission and build your excitement about the privilege of parenting and discipling your children as God called you to do.

We are focusing on strengthening homeschool families as they begin this school year. As Homeschoolers we have the opportunity to disciple and teach our children in a way that others may not. Which makes it all the more important that we know What we are doing; How we should be doing it; and What we stand to gain by doing it.

If you can not make it to the live in-person event, the next best thing is watching the livestream of the speakers on stage. This is not a collection of info provided across a desk on a Zoom call. The live stream will be from stage in front of a live audience. The delivery from the speakers and the energy from the audience can not be matched, and you will benefit even while watching from home.

Each speaker touches on a specific aspect of homeschooling and family that when put together will thoroughly equip parents to strengthen their families. As you will see from our speaking schedule—which can be seen on this webpage(coming soon)—the speakers address reaching the heart of your families as well as the day to day function of running a homeschool successfully.

What a great idea!! Gather some friends together to make an event out of the live streams. You’ll get the same benefit of fellowship and fun that can be found at the actual event. You will all want to have a ticket, though, so you have access to the recordings in the days ahead.

Usually, a Teach Them Diligently event will have over 100 homeschool speakers, with 1,000 families in attendance and over 5,000 people in the building. This event is much more intimate. 

This is truly a live Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Event with the same Family- and Gospel-Focus you have come to expect from our organization. Every session will be in-front of a live audience which will re-create the same energy, encouragement, and know-how of one of our traditional events so that even from the comfort of your own home, you can feel like you’re actually there.

This event will provide substantial opportunity to speak with experts and speakers.

There will be books available to purchase from our speakers and stores. This will not be of the same scale as a traditional Teach Them Diligently event, but there will be resources available onsite.

Most hours of the day will have 3 workshop options available to you onsite. One room per hour will be streamed live on Saturday.

All sessions will be recorded and available through a TTD365 membership, along with every session ever recorded at each event over the last 10 years! You can also purchase a live stream ticket that will give you access to every live-streamed session for each TTD Live event up to 60 days after the event.

The cost for the event is for each person. This means that if you bring children that will use a seat then you must purchase a ticket. Furthermore, these seats at the live in-person event are non-refundable.

There are tickets available for just the internet livestream if you can not make it to the in-person event.
