Ep 32 - Benjamin and Kirsten Watson: Big Families & Figuring Out What's Next
Benjamin and Kirsten Watson sit down with Paula for a fun conversation about parenting their seven children, sharing the spotlight with your spouse, and discovering new callings outside of the identity your career creates. They talk about the good and bad times they have shared during their 16 years of marriage and working through unexpected difficulties like resentment. Benjamin also talks about the process of redefining himself outside of the NFL after recently retiring and turning 40 at the same time.

Find out more about the Watson family and Kirsten's new book, The Watson Seven.
