Shawn Reynolds family
the reynolds

Shawn and his wife Katie reside in Lexington, KY with their six amazing kids. Shawn & Katie have experienced both an unexpected pregnancy as a young, unwed couple and have also adopted one of their children, so the gift of life and celebrating that gift is close to their hearts.

These experiences along with the journey of some of their kids is an impactful part of Shawn’s events.

One of their daughters, Kiley Grace, is currently attending Asbury University where she’s pursuing a career as a Christian keynote speaker, teaching on the dangers & darkness of social media for teens after experiencing her own personal trauma. The adoption of their fifth child, Keegan, is an incredible story of God’s amazing plan for all of us and sometimes Keegan travels with Shawn as his tech manager, road manager, and fellow mac ‘n cheese connoisseur.
