Meet Shanon, Newsymom Author

We are proud to welcome Shanon Elkins to the Newsymom team!!

Hello! My name is Shanon and I’m a stay at home mom. I am married and have 2 children. My laid back easy going son Jase is 5 and my sassy independent daughter, Olivia is 3. It’s crazy how different they are. It definitely keeps me on my toes. We also have a few fur babies too! Can’t forget them.

I love the outdoors along with my family! Going on adventures and creating memories are my favorite.

I love missions work! I help out with our missions team at church and went on my first missions trip last year to Haiti. Once you go on one trip you don’t want to stop! I’m going to Ecuador this fall. I love that I can share this with my husband too. He has been to Honduras twice now. I’m teaching my children to give back when they can. I love the big hearts that they have developed. I also teach Sunday school at our church.

In my free time, usually, when the kids are sleeping, I like to spend time on me. I think it’s very important to take the time for yourself so then, in turn, you can be the best mom you can be. Personal development, self-affirmations, daily reflections, bible time, journaling and workouts are some of the daily routines I try to accomplish.

One last fun tidbit. I am obsessed with the Hallmark movie channel! I know they are all pretty much the same but I just can’t help it. Christmas movies and lovey-dovey movies all year round… I’ll take it!

I am so excited to be joining the Newsymom team! Such a great community where moms can just be moms and share happy times along with the messy times. Because let’s be honest there are plenty of those! Looking forward to sharing with all you beautiful mommas.
