My name is David Heflin and I am the preacher at the Woodward Church of Christ in Woodward, OK. “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 own story in that regard and what led me to make the change of focus for this blog 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 to them, but it matters to know that there are those who can relate to you in a daily struggle with pain.
As a Christian minister, I try to 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. Don’t expect my point of view to be neutral, however. I don’t expect yours to be either.
Also, I am married with three kids (2 boys and a girl). My first commitment in being a disciple of Jesus is to be a godly husband and father in hopes that my children will know our Savior no matter what may come in this world.
