Why or Why Not with the Watsons

From the outside it may look like we get along "all the time".  Let us be the first to tell you that is not the case.  Meet "Why" aka Benjamin and "Why Not" aka Kirsten as we discuss topics ranging from keeping the spark in your love story, to how to talk to your kids about race.  Tune in to hear how we approached the crazy life of the NFL and mindfully apply biblical truth to our daily lives with our family. You will laugh and you may cry, but in the end our hope is that our different approaches to situations bless you and your family. Podcast episodes are coming soon!
