About Broken & Mended

“Broken and Mended” is a Christian chronic pain support ministry and became a registered nonprofit organization in February of 2021. You can read about my (David Heflin) story and the origin of Broken and Mended here.

I intend this to be a place where those who are hurting, literally every day of their lives, can come and be encouraged that there are those out there who understand what you are going through. Everyone’s suffering is unique, but it helps to know that there are those who can relate to you in your daily struggle with pain and/or illness.

As a Christian ministry, we view the world through the lens of being a disciple of Jesus. All are welcome here and especially those who struggle with pain or support those who do. Broken and Mended is a Christian ministry but will serve as a connecting point for all those who struggle with chronic pain, regardless of religious background. However, it would be misleading to suggest our viewpoint is neutral. Broken and Mended is very intentionally a Christian ministry.

Resources available to everyone include our blog and our podcast, In The Seams. You can request to join the Facebook group for Broken and Mended here: Broken and Mended Facebook. It is a closed group, but I will gladly add you. We also have a Facebook Page. You can contact me directly using our contact form

We have support group meetings that meet in different places and/or online throughout the month. They may be arranged around geography, age, disease type, etc.

If you are interested in starting your own support group, see the information here, or fill out the contact form, and I will get in touch. Leader’s Guides and Participant’s Guides are available.

Thanks for visiting! We hope to see you again!
