Ex-NFL player, father of seven, co-founder of the “One More” nonprofit organization, who loves Jesus and loves family and gives of his resources to help others do the same.
If you are an American football fan, you may recognize Benjamin Watson from the NFL teams, the New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, or New Orleans Saints. His football career is nothing short of marvelous.
But that isn’t the only aspect of his life that is outstanding. Benjamin and his wife Kirsten have done amazing work for impoverished communities. Their nonprofit organization “One More” was established in January 2008 and aims to promote education and to provide enrichment opportunities to those in need. Not only does the organization meet physical needs, but is also aims to support spiritual needs. They spread the hope and love of Jesus Christ to those they serve.
When Benjamin isn’t giving his time to “One More” or family, he involves himself in interviews, speaking engagements, and service projects. He participates in the International Justice Mission which aims to put an end to sex trafficking.
His family has been an invaluable motivation in his endeavors. Since Kirsten and Benjamin’s wedding in 2005, they have grown into a family with seven kids, as of 2019. Their children are twin girls, Grace and Naomi, Isaiah, Judah, Eden, and twin boys, Asher and Levi.
Benjamin gives all glory to God for his family, career, and accomplishments. Find out what fuels his passion!
The Bible reveals our
hearts and unclothes
It gives hope on
our darkest day,
wisdom in our most
truth in a world
full of lies.
God’s Word is the only
word by which life
truly makes sense.
In fact, his Word is the
only way we know
about true life.
Passing by a gym of vibrant people that stood next to a cemetery caused Benjamin Watson to think about life and death, priorities, and what we live for.
Benjamin Watson shares with us what he learned about our identity as Christians while attending a soccer game with his daughter.
Here’s an interview from Ben Watson,
where he opens up about his faith,
sports, race relations, fatherhood,
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
For everybody, I think that we all, when we look at this situation of race, we need a change of heart, and I said it before. I believe the heart change comes from repenting of your racism, repenting of your bias, repenting of your prejudice and understanding that, you know what, God sees us all the same.| Source
