Evangelical-based online community MomLife Today has announced that Kirsten Watson—a public speaker, activist, nonprofit leader, and mother of seven—will serve as executive editor of the website that counts Priscilla Shirer, Karen Lorrits, and Dannah Gresh among its contributors.
“I want to meet moms where they’re at,” Watson said in a phone interview with Faithfully Magazine. “Because of where I am in my journey of motherhood, raising seven children with my husband, the way we connect might be different. We want to offer tidbits of inspiration.”
Her husband, NFL tight end Benjamin Watson, retired last year after 16 seasons. The couple collaborate often in their creative endeavors, including a weekly podcast that premiered last fall and a documentary film, “Divided Hearts of America,” that grapples with complex issues of life and abortion.
With her MomLife Today role, Watson will differentiate her voice to a greater degree—and it may surprise some moms. Since the site’s launch in 2008, MomLife Today has become a hub of devotional and parenting advice content featuring such voices as Barbara Rainey, Kay Arthur, and Mary Beth Chapman.
