5 Heartbeats launched in October 2016 for a community of people longing to live their lives intentional! Mind, body and soul. I love to see people win! My desire is to encourage others to do just that, as I daily seek to win in this life myself. Blogging five different areas that I consider the theme of my life. Faith, Family, Friendship, Fitness and Fun.

My name is Shanell Henry, born and raised in Lansing, MI. I’m a Recording Artist, Speaker, Artist Missionary, Community Organizer and Motivator. I’m passionate about people, purpose and engaging communities to help impact lives and change perceptions. Aspiring daily to live life intentional by design. Connected to my power source, Jesus Christ.  Married to a wonderful man, who is also the father of our three sons. I have a great love for people, family, friends and fun! Physical fitness is also a great part of who I am.  I desire to become stronger and better on the outside as well as the inner.

If you love encouragement, excitement, truth, and humor, you should feel right at home here. You can expect just that! 5 Heartbeats was a God given assignment without a doubt. After attending the funeral services of my loving grandmother Fannie Crook, I was re-ignited to live my life more intentional. Upon inspiration I will blogging through various forms; written, video, photos, quotes, scripture, or even song and poetry. Stay connected and enjoy the ride!
