Tara-Leigh CobbleStaff - TLC

D-Group Founder & CEO

Her earliest memory is learning John 3:16 from her mom, shortly before her brother led her to Christ. Despite an early introduction to Christianity, she wasted years coasting on the second-hand information she learned from others. In 2008, through the gentle encouragement of a friend, she read all the way through the Bible for the first time. That changed everything. "I wanted and needed people alongside me in my pursuit of God -- people to hold me accountable for scripture memory and Bible reading and all the things that were bringing me so much newfound joy!" Out of that need, she started D-Group with a handful of strangers in a living room in 2009. She lives in Dallas, TX, where she has no pets or children - or anything else that might die if she forgets to feed it.

As the daughter of a Minister of Music, Rachel grew up being at the church "every time the doors were open." She became a Christian at the age of six but it wasn't until joining D-Group that she was truly challenged with the question, "Is what I believe deeply rooted in scripture or is it just what was taught to me as a child?" Through processing that question, God strengthened the truth of her faith and gave her a burning desire to know Him and His Word more. Rachel lives with her husband, Chase, and their two sons in Simpsonville, SC. They are members of Newspring Church in Greenville. Lindsay grew up in a loving, Christian household and came to know Jesus as her Savior at 7 years old. In recent years, she has pursued a much deeper understanding of Scripture and her relationship with God, and as a result, she’s zealous about inviting others to join her in D-Group and The Bible Recap. She loves getting up early to spend time learning with her online D-Group! She enjoys doing anything creative and RV camping with her family. Lindsay lives with her husband, Grant, and their two kids in Fort Worth, TX.

As a child, Meg taught Bible stories in front of her dolls, stuffed animals, and any neighbor she could convince to listen. Over time, her zeal for God morphed into merely serving Him, which led her to a season of spiritual burnout. In His kindness, the Lord awakened her heart with reminders of who He truly is. She genuinely desires to spend her days “testifying to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24). She lives in Dallas, TX, where she enjoys a spontaneous game night and serves at City Church International. Lauren came to trust Christ with her salvation at the age of seven. She trained to be a professional ballet dancer with Ballet Magnificat and served as a missionary with them for three years traveling across the USA. She later went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Texas at Arlington where she met her husband at a Bible study. D-Group catapulted her to “love God and love people” more than she had ever previously while maintaining doctrinal soundness. She is currently studying for her M. Div. at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary as a Pirsig Fellow. Her family of eight attends Hope Fellowship in Denton, TX.
