TTD Live 2023
Grace Baptist Fellowship | February 4th 2023
A conference For refocusing your vision for your homeschool
Teach Them Diligently events and resources have been used by the Lord to impact countless homeschool families just like yours by encouraging their hearts, refocusing their minds, and helping them find joy and order in what God has called them to do. It is truly a JOY to get together with thousands of others who are making decisions that put the hearts and minds of their family first. Make your plans to join us this season in Greenville, SC for a 1-day celebration of faith, family, and homeschooling unlike you’ve ever experienced. We cannot WAIT to see you there!
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
valuable event for you.
The live event will start at 9am and end at 6:30pm. You can find the specific event schedule above the FAQ.
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.
We are catering in Tropical Grille for lunch on Saturday. You can purchase a lunch ticket above.
We will not have any discounted room blocks, so you can book a room at any 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.

Leslie Nunnery- Teach Them Diligently – Refocus on your Marriage (Ladies Only)
The world is full of messaging that breeds discontent— your finances are not enough, your opportunities are not enough, your marriage is not enough, etc. Instagram and Facebook absolutely breed that discontent and encourage us to lean into it and feast on it.

So today we’ll focus in on that human relationship that’s the bedrock on which all of our others are built— our marriage. We’ll see how God designed it to be and how focusing in on the truths found in the Bible can transform our marriages from the inside out.

Heidi St. John and Leslie Nunnery Q+A
Hal and Melanie Young – Raising Real Men – Middle School Madness
When our oldest was eight, we thought we were pretty great homeschool parents. Then he hit nine or ten and the wheels fell off his educational train! Another child did pretty well until he was eleven, then all-of-a-sudden he couldn’t focus at all or remember things he’d learned last week. Others didn’t struggle until twelve or thirteen, but there seems to be something that makes middle school just plain hard, for nearly everyone. How do you live through it? Is it possible to make the middle school years great? Join Hal & Melanie for doable ideas and real hope for getting through the challenging tween/preteen years and laying a foundation to make high school even better.
