Growing up in Texas, Matt Holcomb was well acquainted with Dare to Discipline, by Dr. James Dobson. His parents relied heavily on the bestselling book. Back then, he didn’t appreciate the "discipline" part of his instruction as much as he does today. Matt and his wife Ariel now rely on the book just as his parents did to raise their two adopted children, Finn and Hazel Grace.
As a military pilot, Matt’s job has taken his family across the country and him around the world. With the constant moving, he and Ariel used the truths in this and other resources from the Dobson Family Institute to ground their marriage and their parenting in the Word of God. In 2021 their time in the military came to an end after almost 15 fantastic years.
Now they are slowly transitioning back to civilian life and plan to settle in West Texas where they met. As homeschooling parents, Matt and Ariel seek to apply the wisdom they’ve learned through the years so their children will know Christ and make Him known.
