My name is Kirsten. I’ve been married for over 15 years to a man that has spent his life being an NFL football player and a disciple of Jesus. Together we have seven kiddos and two babies in heaven.
I have a knack for organizing, savory foods and honest discussions about life. Lately, I’ve fallen back in love with Jesus. Like, for real. I love spending time talking about, reading about, and thinking about the grace, mercy, and righteousness of God!
But, I’m just going to say it. Being a Mom is hard.
If you’re anything like me, I go from giving myself a “gold star” for motherhood, to counting down the minutes until 7:30 pm when we put the kids to bed.
As mothers, we need encouragement. We need wisdom. We need community.
So what if there was a safe place for moms to be real about what happens in our homes and hearts? What if this safe place was accessible in your busy schedule, provided the Titus 2 model of serving women, and was rooted in scripture and God’s truth?
This is a place for us to be encouraged and become more like the women God designed us to be. It’s a place for accountability, truth in love, and space to simply take a breath. And I’m so glad you’re here as we learn to enjoy God’s blessings and the journey of motherhood.
I’m eager to get to know each of you in the coming days as we share our stories and find encouragement together. Exciting times are ahead!
– Kirsten Watson
