Product Description

Loss can occur in many forms, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or termination of a job. Healing Takes Time is filled with 52 meditations and reflections to help people experiencing loss start a journey of healing. This biblical resource draws on experiences from Gallagher's life, and includes a theme, relevant Scripture passages, personal illustrations, and practical steps to take toward healing in each meditation. Just as a physical injury takes time to mend, emotional and spiritual anguish require time, patience, and faith to heal. Perspective is often lost during painful times, and the Scripture passages in this book are a fresh reminder of God's love and faithfulness. Most people have heard about the stages of grief, but knowing the stages academically is quite different from knowing them in the heart. Healing Takes Time helps those suffering loss, loneliness, and sorrow prayerfully walk through the stages of grief step-by-step. This book is ideal for support groups or people working at their own pace. This short, practical, and focused book is a helpful companion for anyone experiencing emotional or spiritual distress.

Editorial Reviews

Using this book will help the grieving person to regularly set aside a few minutes: to pray and turn to God for the help needed.

Catholic Library World

Because ‘Healing Takes Time,’ Dr. David Gallagher’s deceptively brief devotional is all the more important as a companion along the way. For those who have experienced loss in any of its shattering and life-transforming manifestations, this book is a sensitive and encouraging guide. With a seasoned pastor’s deep store of experiences and a fellow-sufferer’s intimate knowledge of the terrain of grief, Dave shares his vignettes, drawn from his own life and from the losses of those he knows. With a word of Scripture, a brief prayer, and a suggestion or encouragement, he makes God’s own concern palpable and real.
Dr. Dennis E. McFadden, President/CEO, Atherton Baptist Homes, Alhambra, California

In his book, Healing Takes Time, Dr. David Gallagher gently takes the reader’s hand and together they walk the tough journey towards spiritual wellness through scripture promises and quiet reflections. His support and guidance smooth the rough spots as his gentle voice quiets the restless and provides hope for those who need understanding. Above all, his faith in God’s love and compassion for each of us brightly lights the way.
Molly Wright, St. Thomas More Newman Center, Columbia, Missouri

The vignettes, useful Scriptural encouragement, questions for self-reflection, practical-step suggestions, and prayers are relevant, sensitive, and helpful in providing guidance for the healing journey that takes time—with God’s help and His healing touch.
Jane Bruzzese, Program Director, Interfaith Community Care, Surprise, Arizona

Dr. Gallagher invites you on a journey of healing in Healing Takes Time. It is a practical guide, offering encouragement for the times when we feel so alone in our loss, offering hope that, in time, God heals our hurts—He is faithful!
Michelle Dionisio, President/CEO, Interfaith Community Care, Surprise, Arizona

David Gallagher has carefully written a book that is sensitive, encouraging, and relevant to all who experience loss. The 52 meditations include themes, scripture passages and personal response that draw you into truth and understanding. I found myself wanting to read more because it made so much sense as I thought of loss in my own life and the lives of friends. This book will be used to heal you and those you know to work through loss and experience healing over time.
Pastor Michael Slater, Author of Becoming a Stretcher Bearer, Founder of Stretcher Bearer Ministries, Whittier, California

Dr. David Gallagher’s new book is a winner---big time. It is steeped in the elements of love, forgiveness, grace and hope---through all our tears. Healing does come for any and all who can see the hand of God at work even in the dark clouds that hover all around us. The real-life stories-like the bird guarding the bird feeder, the tragedy of 9-11 and the famous quote of Winston Churchill and others make for great insights and vital topics of discussion. Lay people and staff members of the wider church will find in this fresh devotional book a clear and workable path on the road to healing.
Staff Chaplain Don Farrior, Del E. Webb Memorial Hospital, Sun City West, Arizona

Transitions are hard. In fact, they can be devastating! But why do people who experience the same loss end up at different places? While some stop living and simply exist for the rest of their years . . . others rebound and even excel beyond their previous limits. This book can make a difference in one outcome of the other for many people who will experience such transitions.
Charles Arn, President, Church Growth, Inc., Monrovia, California
