The story of Be Broken Ministries began with the story of Jonathan & Elaine Daugherty (pictured). Their personal journey through the devastation of sexual addiction and brokenness led to the formation of the ministry. As healing began, they started to realize just how prevalent sexual brokenness was for individuals and families nationwide. Not wanting their healing to be in vain, they decided to begin reaching out to other men and their families who could benefit from the principles they learned on the journey to freedom and restoration. The road was difficult and painful, but the results have been worth every step. And we believe it will be worth it for your life and family too...

Why the Name "Be Broken"?
We have gotten this question a lot over the years. And it's a fair question. After all, most who come to us for help don't want to "be broken" any longer. But there is beauty to be found in our brokenness when it intersects with the grace of God.
"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise."
This verse in the Psalms is a key foundation for our name. There is a kind of brokenness in true contrition over sin that ushers in the flood of God's compassion; He will not reject the offering of a broken and contrite heart.
We believe such humility is not to be a mere moment in time, but rather an attitude by which we live every day. As we grow in this faithful humility we experience more and more the abundant overflow of God's mercy. This, in turn, draws us into a deeper and deeper trust in our loving Creator.
Therefore, to "be broken" is both the bridge of repentance over which the grace of God pours in and the cornerstone of humility on which a life of grateful godliness is built.
