ROCK HILL S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – Kirsten Watson, is the proud mom of seven kids – once worked for a Fortune 500 company – and is the wife of Football City USA Star and retired NFL Player Benjamin Watson. As if she didn’t have enough on her plate – she is now a book author.
Watson spending time in Rock Hill on this Thursday as part of the YMCA of the Upper Palmetto Speaker Series. Watson has a new book called – “Sis, Take a Breath”. She says the Lord was telling her to write something and after ignoring his calls – the idea came to her during COVID when she was at home with seven kids.
Watson says she hopes people will find peace throughout their hectic day to stop and pause. She says it’s during those moments – she says God will speak with you.
She says while the Watson family has had success – they also have the same struggles as everyone else and are human at the end of the day. “In our time of social media we have an opportunity to see people’s highlight reel and sometimes we compare their highlight reel to our reality and that’s very dangerous. Hopefully in the book you will see an opportunity of vulnerability, being real and authentic and though I don’t know everyone’s story we have a lot in common. There are highs and lows and trauma and that connects us more than success and things we see on TV.”
