Nut-Free Banana Bread (paleo)

Nut-Free Banana Bread (Paleo)

I have made this Nut-Free Banana Bread more times than I can count, but each time I make it, it gets scarfed down before I get a chance to take a picture of it. I don’t remember where the original recipe came from but I’ve tweaked it a bit since I started making it and with that it’s become a family favorite where I make two loaves at a time whenever we have leftover bananas that need to be eaten.

A Survivor Always

11009342_10152658525682407_6185119779250400793_n

I was raped and ritually abused nearly every day for 2 years straight at 5 and 6 years old by close friends of my parents, and their son who babysat me. Mom dad and son. All three were involved.

I am 34 years old now… After 28 years of suffering the torment of silence, alone, ashamed, and riddled with guilt. I finally got the courage to post this on my wall on Facebook because how grateful I would have been to see this pic 20 years ago!

You can check out the link to the picture I posted HERE.

A survivor always,
Justin Holmes

Toxic Family Members > God says “Walk Away”

Toxic Family Members > God says “Walk Away”

I am often asked why I don’t associate with my birth mother, my brother, and two of my half-brothers. The conversations all start with, “How is your…?” To which I reply, “I’m not really sure, I haven’t seen them or talked to them in years”. Then I am asked “Why?” To keep it simple I  just say that we took different paths in life, which sums it up in a nutshell, but that never seems to be an acceptable answer, because as soon as it’s said, the interrogation begins. At this point I usually just say that the house I grew up in was abusive and I walked away, so I wouldn’t become a product of my environment. I am then told, in so many words, that it’s sinful and wrong that I’ve cut off ties with my family, that it doesn’t matter that they are abusive to me, that the proper thing to do is be patient and tolerant of their sins.

HIDDEN AMONGST THE RUBBLE

Hidden Amongst the RubbleMany years ago, I met this guy named Alan. He was everything I’d ever dreamed a man to be.

 

I had just moved 856 miles away from my family, escaping 13 years of sexual abuse. I was 22 years old, standing alone, raw and lost to say the least. Love was not something I ever knew, it was something I’d never been shown. I was stifling years of pain, staring down scars, scars embedded in my soul. Continue reading
