Remember To Live March 28 2012
By elizabeth o'mara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Remember to Live" is an important book. While most of us would rather avoid facing the reality of death, we need to do just the opposite. Using scripture and personal stories as well as a bevy of rich resources from both spiritual and religious mentors, Father Ryan gives us the unique opportunity to explore and deepen our own spiritual path in the second half of our life. He writes beautifully. His message is clear. It also is practical. He continually bolsters his message through the kind of poetry, spiritual exercises and "every day" suggestions that all readers can easily access. This is a book to be read and reread. It is a gift to everyone fortunate enough to read it. I highly recommend it.

Love Being Alive March 21 2012
By Alice Latham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Remember to Live is a valuable resource for our time. It addresses our obsession with staying young, as well as our difficulty facing aging, illness and death. We are reminded that life's finitude cannot be controlled, and there is a need to keep our priorities in order and live our lives to the fullest every day. Through personal sories and testimories, the author demonstrates that life's losses are an opportunity for deeper personal growth. The book can be used for personal or group inquiry. The exercises at the end of each chapter allow the reader to go deeper into the themes. Each theme is further emphasized through the use of poetry and prayer. This journey takes the reader through difficult issues to comfort, and concludes with a sense of excitement about living life with consciousness and purpose.

Don't go thru it alone May 23 2012
By LindaH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Father Ryan's book is very comprehensive of all the inevitable events that take place in the second half of our lives. As I was reading, I realized I had already been thru about three quarters of these events: Loss of a loved one; health issues; confusion over future endeavors; change of priorities in occupation, and changes in the way I handled and processed these things. I think Fr. Ryan's book is most helpful in teaching us how to process these punctuations in our life. At my current phase of life, I find that i have come up with the same conclusions as Fr. Ryan, but I did it the hard way without the guidance and support that his book offers. And it took me a lot longer. It is really about an attitude adjustment, handling things a new way, seeing another way to look at the same thing. And remaking yourself to fit the circumstances. Now I will face the rest of my life, with new understanding and a sense of God's wonders till journey's end.
Thank you Fr. Ryan

Attention: All Ages! April 11 2012
By robert watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Everyone over the age of 21 ought to read Father Tom Ryan's book, Remember to Live! Persons finding themselves in the "sandwich generation" will learn ideas to better help them understand their parents; persons facing the addition of years will glean new and needed spiritual, physical and psychological insights.

This book truly resonates with anyone who thinks realistically beyond today, but it also gently prods those who don't have open, realistic minds about aging and the need to "do it well."

Tom Ryan is an excellent role model himself, but he also provides examples of others whose experiences are invaluable. If you hope to have only the best of futures, run, don't walk to get this book, and then reserve a comfortable corner to assimilate its ideas.

Remember to Live July 15 2012
By dcc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book challenges the reader to explore their own expectations about their end of life experiences. The use of testimonials and personal vignettes makes the read easy and real. Some of the author's own stories helps us get to know and love his family. Their stories are amazing examples of giving back and being really alive later in life. While the subject line in this book is really pretty sobering, it raises questions that most of us will have to face. As a result, it's not a light and cheerful read. One must think through difficult and sometimes hard realities about our lives here on earth. But for those of us who's faith is strong, this book helps to remind us of the lessons of our spiritual life, and gives us direction as to how we can continue to grow as individuals and as servants of God.
