Asleep in JESUS is beautifully written with many words of inspiration dealing with the loss of a beloved husband and father. The book is filled with encouragement and spiritual support. Being able to understand the loss of a love one and how to move forward. There is in this book a Supernatural Experience that both Vivian and her daughter witness in the clouds at the same time bringing them both great comfort. I truly believe they saw the vision in the clouds for I have had one similar experience that left me filled with faith and comfort. The prayers devotional and Christian counseling are I truly uplifting. I believe that everyone in Law Enforcement needs to receive this message, understand how to deal with the stresses that come with the job and to seek help when needed. Even though the book it’s about the loss of a loved one, it gives great comfort and help in dealing with many issues in life. The book is a great tribute to the life of Officer William J. Sielaff.

So very inspiring! "Asleep In Jesus" is a true and heartfelt testimony to the healing power of faith. Nothing prepares us for the devastating loss of a loved one, and only through the loving grace of Jesus Christ, can we find such comfort and consolation as described in this inspiring book. Author Vivian Sielaff beautifully captures the wondrous resilience of the human spirit when touched by the grace of God and provides great insight into dealing with loss. Few books address the subject of grief with such sincerity as "Asleep In Jesus", and every page will draw the reader closer to finding a better understanding of how faith can strengthen us and those we love.

 Truly inspirational.....a treasure to hold on to and read over and over!  A must read, Asleep in Jesus is a book for everyone.  What I like is Vivian's heartfelt description of how much her husband meant to her and how tragic his loss still is.  This remarkable  woman  has devoted her life to praising the Lord; teaching her children to praise and worship Him, and continues to live her life with joy in her heart,  It's a testimony to her strength for survival.   The scripture quoted throughout the book was inserted in just the right places.  We can all relate to the loss of a loved one; it's how we process the loss and what we do with our life thereafter that distinguishes us.

For all those dealing with lifes losses and diseases as depression and addictions it gives you much encouragement. Also Vivian has given many bible verses to refer to in our trials. Thank you Vivian for following God's plan for you to share your situations and faith with everyone who reads this book.Patsy T.

Asleep in Jesus has helped me to understand that I'm not alone when I pass through difficult situations in life. On Chapter 7 pg's 121-123 I found God's comfort reading Psalms 121 and the scripture "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever." John 14:16 Also, I found hope and peace on Chapter 12 pg's 134-136 reading the scripture "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27. Vivian, praise God He guided you to write Asleep in Jesus, by sharing your pain you have helped many to trust God and overcome adversities in their life.

This is a good little book for everyone who has experienced grief, especially from the loss of a spouse. The book has a compelling personal story of the author. She shares how God used her husband to bring her to a personal relationship with Jesus, then she experienced the death of her spouse. The rest of the book is about how God can comfort and help those experiencing the hurt of grief. Following her own story, she includes some devotionals and other resources. All of these are good tools to help people learn from their grief and to draw closer to God through Jesus Christ. I read the book and used some of her story as a sermon illustration to help people experiencing the trials of life. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. God can help those who have experienced loss, as well as equip Christians on how to comfort and help those in a time of need.

I purchased Asleep in Jesus to understand what it is like to lose a spouse, as my brother lost his wife 3 years ago and is still struggling.  I like the ways to cope guide and resources at the end. I will give this book to my brother and I pray that it will help and encourage him as he tries to move on with his life.

Throughout the book, the author tells of her story on how she lost a loved one, and how God comforted her and her family. The story and devotionals towards the end of the book brought comfort to me as I lost a loved one too. This book can help people understand a little better, the hope only God can give.

A sad but very inspiring story indeed! It amazes me to see how God comforts people in the loss of their loved ones. I found the other sections are good to read as one may need them in the many seasons of life. It is well written and helpful to those who may suffer from depression. and addiction.
