Integration: Doing and Being Energy w. Dr. Kelly

Guest Presenter & Pillar Partner:

Dr. Kelly Flanagan

Dr. Kelly Flanagan, a licensed clinical psychologist, author, and speaker, joined the Front Row Dad Community on October 26, 2020. With a career spanning two decades, Kelly has dedicated his expertise to enhancing interpersonal relationships through his writing and coaching.

Kelly’s passion for writing illuminates his understanding of the human condition, specifically focusing on the essentials of a satisfying life: worthiness, belonging, and purpose. His regular contributions to his blog and his books, “Loveable” and “True Companions,” have resonated widely, positioning them as #1 New Releases in their category. His first novel, “The Unhiding of Elijah Campbell,” not only topped charts but also clinched multiple literary awards, akin to a dark horse winning a triple crown.

Beyond his professional life, Kelly is an avid cyclist and a proponent of mindfulness, cherishing every moment spent with his family. He believes in crafting lasting memories through simple yet profound family routines and rituals, much like an artist carefully chooses strokes to complete a masterpiece.

His family is a central part of his universe. Kelly’s wife is his staunchest ally, seeing potential in him where others may see limits. Their three children, Aidan, Quinn, and Caitlin, each bring their own unique qualities to the family dynamic, from Aidan’s adventurous spirit to Quinn’s architectural dreams and Caitlin’s desire for family unity at the dinner table every night.

Kelly was introduced to the Brotherhood by Daniel Bingham, but it is the collective support and camaraderie of the group that has cemented his stay. Through his engagement with the community, Kelly aims to leverage his substantial experience to be the best father possible, blending his professional acumen with his personal journey in fatherhood.
