Book Description

 “We rarely remember the precious months or years when we experienced our worthiness as a fact. A given. Something as present, real, and natural as breathing and playing and animal crackers.”

IT’S TIME TO REMEMBER.

Dr. Kelly Flanagan is a clinical psychologist and father known to millions for the letters he writes to his children and shares on his blog. Loveable is written to the little one in each of us, who is all too ready to be reminded: you are enough, you are not alone, and you matter.

In Loveable, Dr. Flanagan reveals the core insight gleaned from his years of clinical work: you are here for a reason, yet you cannot truly awaken to it until you have first embraced your truest, worthiest self and then allowed yourself to be truly embraced by others.

Weaving heart-warming storytelling, gentle insights, and the wisdom of Dr. Flanagan’s Christian tradition—including his belief that we are all “the living, breathing bearers of the eternal, transcendent, and limitless Love that spun the planets and hung the stars”—these pages invite you to remember the name you were given before all other names: Loveable.

Endorsements

“Flanagan offers readers many small observations about life, relationships, and the inner working of the heart and mind in easily digestible fashion. Men and women alike will benefit from his humble transparency as he untangles his own struggles with acceptance of himself. Although the book will be helpful to any reader looking for affirmation and relief from self-criticism, Christian readers especially will find solace, a gentle nudge to change as needed, and tender reminders that all people struggle in similar ways.”
Publishers Weekly

“In Loveable, Kelly Flanagan artfully weaves spirituality, psychology, and personal narrative into a compelling invitation to believe the often unbelievable: each and every human being is deeply beloved. Wise and encouraging, honest and inspiration, Loveable is a handbook for how to be human.”
Katherine Willis Pershey, author of Very Married: Field Notes on Love and Fidelity

“Written like a love letter to his readers, Kelly quiets the noise of shame, while gently inviting us all to listen for another sound—the peaceful, playful, and powerful voice of Grace.”
Aubrey Sampson, author of Overcomer: Breaking Down the Walls of Shame and Rebuilding Your Soul
