About Kirsten Watson
Kirsten Watson is a mother of seven and the wife of communicator and retired NFL player, Benjamin Watson. After graduating from the University of Georgia with degrees in marketing and Spanish, Kirsten worked for a Fortune 500 company and later in the nonprofit sector, aspiring to one day run her own company. Currently, she serves as the CEO of a family of nine and is the Executive Director of MomLife Today. Alongside Benjamin, she co-founded The Watson Seven Foundation, and together they co-host “Why or Why Not with the Watsons”.
When Kirsten speaks, it’s a heartfelt invitation into her world. Her words, often drawn from her personal journey, center on family, womanhood, the complexities of marriage, and the rollercoaster ride that is motherhood. As a communicator of truth, her desire is to inspire, motivate, and provide a sanctuary of understanding and acceptance. It’s a space where the honesty of the Titus 2 model flourishes, where wisdom is shared, and God’s truth lights the path.
With every beat of her heart, Kirsten embodies the spirit of servant leadership. Co-founding The Watson Seven Foundation and playing a significant role as a social business ambassador, she works tirelessly to create waves of change. Kirsten’s philosophy is simple: love deeply, serve generously, and stand in unwavering solidarity with those in need. Even when times are tough, her faith fuels her commitment, and her prayers reach out to the world.
Kirsten’s passion for giving back is evident in The Watson Seven Foundation, a nonprofit she co-founded with her husband, Benjamin. The foundation’s mission is to strengthen families by enriching marriages and equipping parents, empowering them with opportunities to thrive and make a positive impact in their community.
