+ HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE BRAND JUSTUS®?
CEO/founder of The Justus Love Corporation, Stacy Snapp-Killian, follows the teachings of a man named Jesus, known as “The Christ.” Written in Holy Scripture, Matthew 7:7, Jesus teaches his disciples to “ask, seek, and knock.” Stacy “asked” for the name of her business, and then she “sought” the answer. Obsessed with finding a name that best describes her intellectual property and conceptual idea she began paying attention to every word that crossed her path. Four weeks after her prayer, while sitting in church reading through scriptures, Colossians 4:11 (KJV) said, “And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of my circumcision. These only are my fellow workers unto the Kingdom of God, and are a comfort unto me.”
Immediately, she had an answer to her request, and wrote along the side page of her Bible Justus Love.

+ WHAT IS SEXUAL ABUSE SUPPRESSION?
"A state in which the conscious mind keeps sexual abuse from publication or being made known.”
+ WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEXUAL ABUSE AND SEXUAL ABUSE SUPPRESSION?
Sexual abuse refers to any action that pressures someone to do something sexually he or she does not want to do. It is any sort of nonconsensual sexual contact. This happens to men or women of any age. Sexual abuse can include derogatory name-calling, manipulation, deliberately causing unwanted physical pain during sex, and/or rape. It is unwanted sexual activity with anyone using force, making threats, or taking advantage of you without your consent. Sexual abuse is the term victims use to describe their past sexual experience if it was not consensual. Sexual abuse can involve treating someone with cruelty once or multiple times.
Sexual abuse suppression refers to the conscious mind’s way of keeping sexual abuse from publication or being made known.During an encounter of sexual abuse the victim is aware of the fear he or she is experiencing but chooses to mentally and emotionally detach from the pain.The victim deliberately chooses to push the memory of sexual abuse out of awareness because the person wants to avoid any responsibility for it.
+ WHO IS THE GRASS ROOTS FOUNDER OF THE SEXUAL ABUSE SUPPRESSION MOVEMENT?
Stacy Snapp-Killian is the founder of the movement since 2013, she has studied what scientists have recently learned about the brain and the way it works. Her hypothesis is, “We experience sexual abuse in a conscious state of mind but choose to suppress it.”
After years of research on the effects that carry over into the victim’s adolescence and adulthood, she was led back to her own childhood memory, and the fear, guilt, and shame she continually experienced because of the sexual trauma.
After working with hundreds of adult men and women who have suppressed the truth about their own sexual abuse, she came to the theory that they all consciously knew something wrong had been done to them and felt the fear associated with the trauma, but as children they did not have the vocabulary, education, or sexual experience to articulate the incident properly and chose not to publish it.
Stacy also discovered through survivors’ stories a misunderstanding between the parent and/or caregiver and the adults who were once victims of the sexual abuse.In most cases they were informing someone of the encounters (e.g.,“He’s mean to me,” “I do not like him,” “He’s hurting me,” or crying and begging not to stay in a particular place with the perpetrator).But again, without the proper education, sexual experience, or vocabulary needed to explain the act of sexual abuse, as children, they became silent.
Breakthroughs in brain science are helping The Justus Love Corporation better understand how scientists have made new discoveries over the past five years concerning the brain. As of now, we believe a more accurate description of the effect sexual abuse has on a person into his or her adulthood is sexual abuse suppression.
+ WHEN SEXUAL ABUSE SUPPRESSION SETS IN DO NEGATIVE EMOTIONS CREATE FUTURE PROBLEMS?
Yes. Sexually suppressed adults link emotions to fear, and articulate episodes of sexual abuse in forms of nightmares. Hiding from the emotion brought on from childhood sexual abuse years later results in: Depression, low self-esteem, anger, stress, anxiety, and in some cases of extreme trauma—physical sickness in the body.
All sexual abuse suppression has a natural way of releasing itself through some form of self-medication. Typically, sexually suppressed adults who never spoke out or told anyone about their sexual abuse end up emotionally destroyed and carry with them negative energy they did not anticipate having to deal with as adults.
This negativity causes the victim to self-medicate with such things as food, drugs, alcohol, over-the-counter medication, sex, and in some cases self-harm.
+ WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ABUSE SUPPRESSION?
These adults did not report sexual abuse when they were children. There was no Child Protective Services involved. They did not know who court-appointed special advocates, or CASA volunteers, were, and there was no known need for a judge to defend them. They stayed silent to protect their religious beliefs, dignity, families, reputation, and lives. Their story didn’t concern wars between family members or court case battles between loved ones.
As a matter of fact, in the majority of people, adult survivors of sexual abuse believe if they never spoke of the crime it would go away, or they would eventually forget the trauma. However, after years of not talking about their sexual abuse they suffered in other ways.
Now, as adults who have experienced sexual relationships they have a better understanding of the vocabulary needed to define their past, and are willing to share their story.
There are millions of people who suffer from sexual abuse suppression. Based on our statistics, every family in the United States has someone in their life affected by it.
+ WHAT SHOULD SURVIVORS STOP DOING?
There is a natural tendency for survivors to focus on what they should start doing immediately. But the harder question for The Justus Love Corporation is, what will we eliminate? The answer is simply that we will no longer push the truth under the rug and silence the epidemic of sexual abuse suppression. What we will stop doing is silencing the heroes of sexual abuse and ask you to do the same!

+ WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF WRITING A SURVIVOR LETTER?
The most effective way survivors heal is through writing. Letter writing is therapeutic. So, ask yourself, “Do I owe myself an explanation?” We encourage you to stand back from the trauma and create a new perspective. Then, you can burn it if you want to. A letter written but not seen by anyone else is yours to do with what you want. However, if you would like to have your letter featured on our website, we would love to share it to help inspire another person to “Pray it out, write it out, speak it out™!”

+ CAN I HELP?
Yes! We believe God is doing His greatest work yet. There are currently 42 million children who are Survivors of sexual abuse in the United States right now. That’s 42 million children who were once victims of sexual abuse protected by government agencies and programs designed to help them.
In the past, we did not have this protection offered, or we did not choose it, or perhaps we were silent because we did not talk about sex at all.
Nonprofit organizations, churches, individuals, and our government on local, city, and state levels joined together to make a stand when it came to protecting our children from sexual abuse, and The Justus Love Corporation is apart of this.
We create platforms for adult survivors of sexual abuse suppression to speak out. We are designed to bring together millions of survivors who stayed silent, and allow them to openly discuss their past in an informative, inspirational, and educational way.
Education and communication are vital to the expansion of our business. We ask everyone who visits our website to share with another person the JustUS® brand.

We are uniting millions of people worldwide, to stop suppressing and start speaking!

She was sexually abused at nine years old, became a mother at nineteen, was raped at twenty-two, and after she began therapy when she was twenty-four, she finally shared with a counselor her own sexual secrets of abuse. She was married for almost ten years until 2010, when her marriage failed because of emotional abuse caused by infidelity.

She founded JustUS® in 2014 and funded the complete start-up out of pocket with money she saved as a hairstylist.
