I work in a CA state prison. I stumbled onto Dave’s Bread finding it to be the first wheat bread I liked. I was concerned about the “killer” part of the name, once I noticed it. I’m glad to hear that Mr Dahl hasn’t killed anyone and thinks it would be the of his life if he did. Good luck to him in his struggle to live his life. I’m glad I found your article with his story.

My story has many striking parallels to Dave’s. The most valuable thing I’ve learned is that we mustn’t be afraid to totally divorce the negative people and pieces of our past, in order to progress. This includes divorcing parts of ourselves that work against our best interest. Some people are willing to take a chance on one who is destitute or in serious need. I encountered that person .. That is a gift from the supernatural and once it happens, we have an enormous responsibility to make their investment pay off .. we can’t ever return to our old inferior… Read more »

Thank you for the story. So sorry to hear of Dave’s current situation. Will be praying for him because only God can bring peace to the torment he’s in.
Hat’s off to his family, especially Glenn.

Fantastic bread toasted or un-toaster. There is one problem I have…I can and do just eat multiple slices as if they were a treat! In one word…yum!

This is a wonderfully inspiring story of overcoming addiction and mental health issues. Keeping recovery first and finding (and accepting) good support is what is going to bring Dave peace ….. not god.

I love Dave’s Killer Bread, especially Raisin the Roof! Extraordinary! Have the bakers thought about combining oat flour and craisins? All the Killer Bread is tasty and appealing. Good job z!

Having had a sister who struggled with drugs from her late teens until approximately 3 years before her death, I witnessed the rollercoaster of in and out of rehabs, struggles with kicking her addiction and the physical effects. From sharing needles she contracted HIV and Hepatitis. She died at age 45. She had three sons who suffered too and she was in the process of rebuilding her relationship with them when she died. It was hard on our parents (dad fought in WWII) and as our dad was in poor health he died less then two months later. I struggled… Read more »
