A Personal Profile, and Ministry History of the Director;

Leonard GrubbsLeonard Grubb began ministering to individuals who were afflicted with alcohol, drug addiction, and obsessive/compulsive lifestyles within two years of his own A TESTIMONY supernatural deliverance from addictions and suicidal depressions.  His redemption and transformation are an answer to his personal prayer and acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord in December of 1984..

Leonard’s Calling as read from: II Timothy 4:1-5 (Quotation from the KJV)


History & Focus;

Since 1987 Leonard has reached hundreds of people, and has a vision of reaching more men and women with the hope that is present in the gospel of Jesus Christ; beginning with personal repentance, forgiveness of sins, and Gods ability and desire to transform broken lives.

In 1998 Leonard and his wife Maureen purchased a 5 bedroom rooming house that had been an active drug house. After evicting the drug dealers they rehabbed it and dubbed it Caleb House – “a transitional housing opportunity for men”, with a Christian Focus. This property provides a Christ centered environment, availability of individual assistance, and encouragement for those needing  alternative housing during a time of transition from recovery facilities, to life in the community as a new & growing Christian.  His work with the men in the house and the maintenance of these and other facilities has kept him active in Urban Cleveland, Ohio, where he has attempted to reach out to other agencies and make himself available as a mentor, counselor and minister to others in need.

Caleb House is currently receiving referrals from The City Mission, and the Salvation Army, Veterans Hospital in Brecksville, all in Cleveland area; from other pastors and churches who are aware of this ministry and calling – and from treatment facilities, and jails, around the state as the need for safe, sober housing and spiritual counsel may arise in Cleveland.

The coalition for housing, through Project Hope has encouraged the development of another “Caleb House” in Lake County Ohio, a project which we hope to undertake in the near future.

Leonard’s mission work & ministry involvement expanded when he was asked by an individual to assist in providing recovery meetings at the Lake County, Ohio, Jail. He began as an individual trying to assist another man, and after experiencing the need of the inmates, and having lost the support of the individual who had asked him to help, Leonard assumed a role of facilitator to expand the meetings and continue the program. Working with the individuals in charge at the jail he reached out to the community of active 12 step members to organize and staff two regular “recovery” meetings a week. In addition, Leonard’s personal commitment to providing Monday meetings on a regular basis, and two additional Bible based “Recovery focus groups” per month has placed him in a proactive position with the inmates who are seeking avenues of change based upon application of Gods word to everyday life.

Leonard has counseled men, women, families and clergy from all walks of life, from his biblical perspective on practical ways of overcoming debilitating behaviors through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ – and is open to working within the community with individuals and churches to continue to develop solutions that are based upon faith in and dependence upon God through Jesus Christ.

Most recently Leonard has taken on the mantel of responsibility associated with being a police chaplain for the city of Painesville, Ohio where he serves the officers and staff along with 3 other area pastors. They are seeking ways to develop and expand this effort to include service to the city employees, and Fire Department by developing a “Chaplains Corps” in Lake County, Ohio.

These ministries have been the focus of his life and activities for over 18 years, after having begun his outreach working with halfway houses in the mid 1980’s.

The formation of Christian Community Missions as an umbrella organization was the suggestion of a number of his advocates, as a vehicle through which he may continue his ministry and raise needed funds to continue, and to expand these efforts.

Can you help Leonard realize his vision for full time ministry? Please pray, and call to discuss how you might be able to support his efforts, and continue to send him into the community as a minister for change through the sharing of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Leonard is married to Maureen and they live in Painesville, Ohio – They worship at Pilgrim Lutheran Brethren Church, in Concord, OH; Rev. Robert Heggestad, Pastor.

I am outside hanging some clothes….and from a far distance, I see a beautiful bird, maybe an eagle? Not sure, but it was dancing in the sky, leaping, in every sort of way, as it lunged here and there. I said a prayer, Lord, bring it closer to me, to see. Instead it disappeared, and I lost sight of it. So no big deal, I am thinking Lord, its o.k. I go in, for a few minutes come right back out, and there it is so clear in sight! Wow God answered my prayer. A little one, but don’t give up anybody, sometimes He does not answer us in our timing, but His timing is always better. Glory to God for this bird! Made me smile, as I thanked Him…..

Growing up I was never taught how to pray, never taught of Gods love, or even the sacrifice Jesus made for our sins. None of the woman in my life were spiritual women and my father and I weren’t very close. My entire teens and early adulthood were somehow surrounded by people who didn’t know or care to have a relationship with the Lord. In ways if nothing else I felt cheated out of this the most. I look back on the years that God was always there and I never knew to call on him. I wonder how my life could have been different if only I knew of his goodness and mercy and his love for me but I didn’t know any better. Instead I lived a very unfulfilling and lonely life full of leaning on my own understanding and making mistake after mistake. As my life seemed to sweep by me the years only got worse. My mother wasn’t shown how to be a spiritually leader and even a leader at all. My father moved away when i was a toddler and though I always reached out for his love it seemed it was never there. I yearned for love that only God could give but went looking for it in the wrong places from the wrong people. At the age of 16 I had my first child and was also told I had abnormal cervical cells. Trying to understand what it meant to be a teen mother my health took a back seat. Years developed and so did my abnormal cells. At 18 I went to my doctor and she said that she needed to do a Leap Procedure to remove all the cells that could possibly become cancerous. When I returned for my post-op she said that the margins were much further than expected and she didn’t get it all. I follow with two more Leap Procedures in the next three years and by the age of 22 I was told that i was very close to cervical cancer. Feeling lost and alone my friend invited me to her church. At this point in my life I felt like I couldn’t do it on my own anymore. God called on me March of 2010 and I began to learn what it was to surrender my life to the Lord, I learned what it was to be cleansed of my sins, I learned what it was to be loved for the first time ever. I learned that my life didn’t have to be dark that God could provide the light I needed. For the first  time in my life I felt free; I felt like no matter what happened in my life if I had God I didn’t need anything else. I got baptized and dug deeper into my relationship with Christ and I truly began to understand that through Christ all things are possible. A short time after I was saved God brought a man into my life that I never knew could exist. This was a man that I could have never imagined would come into my life but I certainly prayed for him. This man was a man of God like I’d never seen before. He quickly became a spiritual leader and mentor. We loved each other with the purest love and we pushed each other to be the best we can be. I remember telling him that if I developed cervical cancer and we couldn’t have any children would he still want to marry me; he said yes. I began to pray for a way out, I began to pray for a healing, I began to pray for our family if we were ever going to have one. God has been so good to me my whole life, even times that I wasn’t good to him he was still so good to me. I remember going to bed one night and thinking I’ve been leaning on my own wants and my own understanding for a long time now and it was time that I learned on the will of God and trust that no matter what happened it was his will for my life and what could be better than the will of God? That night I surrendered all. I went to  church on a Sunday morning and our Pastor heard God asking him to reach out to woman with cervical problems such as cancer and HPV. I got out of my seat along with a few others and humbly stood at the alter and began to just give God a praise. I never heard a word the Pastor was speaking I just remember feeling like it was me and God; as his presence covered me like only a fathers can. I was overwhelmed with the most joyful feeling I had ever felt. My mind, body, spirit and soul felt at such peace. I left that service feeling so much joy tears fell from my eyes hours later. There is nothing in this world like the presence of the Lord. I went to the doctors the follow month to have a biopsy to see how far the cells have traveled and what our next plan of action would be. My doctor called me in her office and as I sat on the cold medical bed she walked in with this unforgettable smile and that was the first time I had ever heard a doctor say, “Praise Jesus” she followed and said “Cherelle its gone, the cells are gone”. She couldn’t find any cells. The moment I surrendered my life to the Lord my days have been full of joy. I look back on the years since I was saved and they are the best years of my life and I praise God in advance for what he has for me next. Like myself many people didn’t grow up in a religious or spiritual home, many have grown up without ever having a spiritual leader but when God has a calling for your life no one can stop that. If you have not surrender your life to the Lord, you will never know what its like to be truly loved, you will never know what its like to have someone else to fight your battles, you will never know what its like to know that when your life ends on earth you will have eternal peace and happiness with your everlasting father. God is my everything and if it had not been for him I don’t know where I would be today. Thank you Jesus!

I have been aware of Gods intervention so many times in my life.

I’ve seen on coming cars come to a halt from hitting me as a child. Felt Him bare me up in his arms to run to safety when I was almost kidnapped as a child. Miraculously healed at the age of 8 then heared what might have been angels singing outside our home.

Rescued in a foreign city long story but after crying to God for help He sent a neighbor of who I was staying with to lead me back..did not speak Chinese and was totally lost was only 12. Had the grace of God over me in court over something I had done completely lifted no record.

Was on a mission in the jungle of Hawaii and a wild vicious dog come after me only to get caught on something standing on his hind legs and yelping right after I just had read psalm 91. I’ve seen my gas go up when I was running on empty.

Opportunities and provisions when I thought there was none and even between that I have been through difficult circumstances but when I look to Him it never fails.

He never fails. He will get you by anything in this life. When you call on Him He will be there and always there.

Also when my son was 5 he was getting out of the passenger side and slammed his entire hand in the door and screamed to the top of his lungs. I rushed him to the doctor praying all the way there and suddenly He started moving his hand and said mom I can move my hand it doesn’t hurt anymore and sure enough not one broken bone.

I saw teenagers I shared Christ with come to Him..rebellious ones who ripped up the track I gave them laughed and God sent police after them can’t remember why but it was their lights that startled them as they ripped up the track and laughed at Christianty. They made a u-turn about the same time.

God led me to intercede for them and told me everything and said please pray for us we want to go to church. And they gave their life to Jesus. I can share so much more amazing things.

I know God has shown himself mighty and I don’t ever want to forget all the things He’s done for me. I can say for a fact that when you cry out to God with all your heart He will be there.

Sometimes you may not feel Him, see him and it may seems He’s not doing anything but He wants us to have faith that He does answer us. Just know He is working behind the scenes. We may not know how or when but the answers is sure to come. God never fails. There is power in the name of Jesus Christ. God bless you and ty for taking the time to read some of my testimony.

When I was 4 years old I remember one night waking up to my grandpa touching me inappropriately, I felt dirty and ashamed and I never told any one and at the time I really didn’t know that it was wrong of him to be doing that..

It continued for many years and he would tell me not to tell any one or he would whip me and so I never did but then as I got older and knew it was wrong of him I stood up to him like a lion and told him he better not ever try touching me again like that or I would tell every one!!!

Any how, I knew a little about God, as a child I grew up going to the Catholic church, I used to be very interested in hearing people talk about God and I had a fear about disobeying God! I know that God gave me a kind, loving and forgiving heart!!

I was upset with what my grandpa had done but I forgave him, YES I FORGAVE HIM and I believe because I forgave him and didn’t keep a grudge or bitterness towards him that I was set free from a bondage that the devil was trying to put on my life!

I didn’t understand it much then but now that I’m an adult and think back at the things I used to do that would bring comfort to me while all this was going on..makes sense now!!

I used to sing songs to God that I learned in church and I would always talk to God when I was alone and it would always bring peace over me!! God was with me through it all and because of that I was able to forgive and not live a life that led to destruction, I’ve seen many people who have gone through the same type of thing that I did and they turned to drugs, alcohol etc….

I know that God has a very important purpose for my life because satan has been trying to get at me for a long time, I also have had many other trials but through my faith in God and having God in my life, I have come through them all, when I fall I get back up and keep going forward, I am a survivor and fighter for God!!

I don’t look at it as being a victim, I look at it as being a testimony to help others, the devil needs to be stomped on and kept under our feet, I am a child of the most high and I’m here to serve God!!! God is and always will be my life line, from the day I was born to eternity…

Thanks be to God for carrying me and making me the person I am today!! My relationship with God is the best relationship I’ve ever had!!! All glory and honor belongs to God our Father!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!

I grew up in a very dysfunctional family. My dad, who died in July 2011, still an alcoholic, was a very abusive man. He would make my mother go to the bars with him so he could keep an eye on her. She, in turn, became addicted to gambling. She’s not too bad now, but when we were younger it was bad. She’d be gambling and dad would be drinking and they’d be throwing money away instead of paying bills. We’d have to do our homework by candlelight, go without baths, grab dirty clothes out of the clothes hamper to wear to school. Go without food from time to time and we moved a lot. The longest we stayed anywhere was the 5 years we spent in Portage.

Our sense of stability, comfort and security came from our Grandparents, our Uncles and Aunts on my mom’s side of the family. Mostly Grandpa and Grandma.

Most of my memories are sporadic, at best. The earliest one being of my dad kicking me in the back with steel-toed work boots and my Grandma kicking him out of her house! She kept me for a while and wouldn’t let my dad see me. Another memory, early on, was of a rat-infested apartment where I had a bad ear-ache. I remember Grandpa getting us kids and taking us to his house. I remember Grandma taking care of my ear and nursing me back to health. I have another memory of hiding behind a metal wardrobe, under my baby brother’s crib. While a man was walking through our house with a flashlight. I remember kool-aid glasses on the table, footrpints on the window and bullet holes in the ceiling. Dad fired off his rifle. I don’t know if it was to warn the intruder or if they were fighting over his gun. Don’t remember that much. Mom tells me now that the man put us under Bob’s crib. All I know is you don’t forget someone breaking into your home very easily.

I was molested by two neighbor boys when I was in first grade. I remember some things about that. Things you’d rather forget, but they creep up on you every now and then. I started drinking at a very young age. I used to think I was about 8 or 9. Now I know I was about 12. I would sneak dad’s whiskey and then put water in the bottle. By the time he caught on to who was doing it, I had found other ways to get my alcohol.

When I was 15 my dad kicked me out of the house for giving him a bloody nose. He was going after my mom with a knife and I reached around and pulled his head back. Thus, the bloody nose. So, I went to live with my Uncle Ed and Aunt Jan for a short time. Then I moved in with a guy who beat, raped and sodomized me. He got help and I moved back. He wound up throwing me into our trailer, hitting my back on some weights that were laying on the floor. Then he chased me around with a knife, fractured my cheek bone and forced me to go to his Mom’s with him. When we got back to the trailer I ran away from him and went to my Brother-In-Law’s Parents’ house. They took me to the hospital.

He did this because he was in a drunken stupor from 1 beer. That’s all it took for him, just one. He turned into a maniac. I stayed with him because by this time I was very close to being an alcoholic. I did LSD and Speed, I smoked pot and hash. But booze was my main drug. I was drinking suicides by this time and I was only 17.

After moving out of that mess, I moved in with my Sister and Brother-In-Law. Big Mistake! From there I moved into a trailer with a “friend” who stole from me. So, obviously, that didn’t work out! LOL

I bounced around a lot, but managed to finish school and work a part-time job. I don’t know how I did that, but I did! My transcripts showed my decline. I went from and A/B student to a C-/D student. So, I barely graduated.

I was having black-out periods of time at 18 and tried to kill myself. The doctor told me I had enough sleeping pills in me to kill me. But they got me to the hospital in time. I just wanted out of the pain, emptiness and loneliness. I had a lot of relationships, but none were good and I had another abusive boyfriend after the first one. So, to say the least, I was one messed up, chickadee!! There’s a lot I didn’t mention that I remember. Most of it bad.

I do remember some good. Going for drives with my mom, all of us hanging out the windows, hoopin’ and hollerin’. I remember going at night on a deserted road and turning off the lights to watch the “Dance of the Fireflies”. But the bad often overpowers the good and you tend to lose hope in life. For me, by the time I was 18, it had no meaning.

I went to Sunday School and Church. Mostly because Dad and Mom wanted us out of their hair! I thought I was saved twice before I was really saved. Even ran from God once, but that’s another story!

When I was saved, I was Delivered! I had been away from my drinking/drugging buddies for about 4 months. I was reading a passage in the Bible that said to go into your prayer closet and pray. I took it literally. I knelt down to pray and demonic faces started flying at me from the left and the right. I bolted out of the closet and knelt by my bed. The faces followed me. I got up into the bed and threw the covers over my head. I started praying. I know I said something about God sending Jesus to die for my sin and asking Him to save me. As I was praying a peace fell over me and I heard a voice whisper, “It’s okay, you can look now.” When I pulled the covers down there was a sheet of light over my bed. It swirled into a ball, entered the center of my chest and flooded over me from head to toe. Then I fell asleep. The next day the lady I was staying with asked if I had tested the spirits. I said, “What do you mean?” She said, “Don’t you know that satan can come as a Spirit of Light?” I told her, “That may be, but I was praying at the time, and I’m filled with so much Peace, Love, Joy and Happiness, I don’t believe satan could imitate this!” I couldn’t smell alcohol after that. It would make me feel like I was gonna puke! That’s a GOD THING!

I don’t know if what I experienced was my imagination or if it actually happened. Some don’t believe in such things. All I know is it was very real to me and I’ve never been the same since! I’m still growing in His Grace, His Mercy and His Love. Even with my Deliverance, I had, and still have, a long way to go! But I’m so thankful that God saw fit to save me! He longs for you to know Him too. He’s waiting to hear from you.

Praise report on the boyfriend I lived with, he was saved a few years ago! He told my sister and asked her to ask me to forgive him. Because he knew he wouldn’t see me. I told her if she sees him again, tell him, he’s all ready been forgiven! Hallelujah! God Is Good!

Footnote: Praise Report; One of the first things I learned to do. Forgive. Others and myself. There’s no peace in Christ without it and who am I to withhold forgiveness from anyone? If I do, then I’m taking God’s place as judge over those who hurt me and over myself for the horrible choices I made! I can guarantee you will not move forward with Christ if you harbor unforgiveness in your heart.

God’s Grace, Blessings, Peace and Love be upon you, Always!

TODAY is my 30 YEAR BIRTHDAY WITH THE LORD!!!! Nov 22, 1982, in Phoenix, Arizona, I was living there with our 3 kids, and my husband was working in Florida, and I was going through what at THAT time, were the worst times of my life.

I had just gotten ANOTHER phone call with a bad report and I did not know what to do. I was raised Catholic, so I knew there was a God, but I thought He was mad at me all the time and had no CLUE that I could talk with Him. ~

Background is that a year previously, while living in Elk Grove, CA, a couple that were friends of ours, they had a little girl the same age as my little girls, and sometimes the Mama and I would do things together with our children. And so I KNEW they were GOOD people, that they were CHRISTIAN, and that they read their Bible.

One day she mentioned something about tithing, and quoted the Word on it. That’s all it was….very simple, and short. But it STRUCK me, somehow. ~ So now fast-forward a year later and I’m in Phoenix, and had just gotten that bad phone call. I was crying so hard… know how you cry SO hard that you can hardly even BREATHE and you’re just a hot MESS? That was me. And then there was a knock at my front door! That was at 10:00am in the morning.

I quickly wiped away some of my tears as best I could and answered the door. There was a beautiful Mexican woman at my door,Bernadette and she had a HUGE DISPLAY BIBLE under her arm (which instantly alerted me that she was a Christian, that she was good, and that I could TRUST her, because I INSTANTLY remembered my friends from Elk Grove and the “word” about tithing a year ago!

Even though that scripture had nothing to do with salvation, it was STILL the Word of God, which does NOT return void, but ACCOMPLISHED what it was sent forth to do! That’s why I quote Scripture so much….it’s POWERFUL!).

And Bernadette says to me, “Hi. My name is Bernadette Gonzales, and I live just across the street there (and she pointed to her home) and I was praying and reading my Bible, and the Holy Spirit told me to come on over to your house, that something was wrong. Is everything all right?” I wailed, “Nooooo, ….c’mon in” and was crying.

Now I REMEMBERED the scripture quote from my friends from Elk Grove a year previous, and now INSTANTLY TRUSTED and BELIEVED Bernadette. And 10 minutes later. 10:10 in the morning, November 22, 1982, I was on my knees, in my living room, receiving Jesus Christ as my Savior and as the Lord of my life!!!! That was the beginning of my beautiful, miraculous and loving journey with my Jesus!

I have since been a missionary to the Philippines for 18 years, a missionary in Mexico for 4 months, chaplain, minister, and a handmaiden of the Most High God! And that happened…..30 years ago TODAY!

Thank You Lord, for my salvation, for Your tremendous love and faithfulness. I again surrender myself to You, consecrate myself to You, and completely give myself to You. I love you, my sweet Jesus, with all that I am! Thank You for loving me, for Your faithfulness, and for ALL that You have done for me and are doing for me and will do for me! I love You!

My Testimony:


I was one of those people Sunday who was feeling a wave of emotions (and I know better).  My husband’s job had cut his hours back last year which caused us to get behind in some things especially our Property taxes.

There is money that we are owed from several sources but it has been one delay after another and the Township has been less than sympathetic.  My husband has not wanted to deal with this issue at all saying if they sell the house, so be it.  I have been standing for both of us.

The tax sale is scheduled for June 29th.  After Sunday when I really gave it all to Daddy,  I purposed in my heart not to think about it again.  I just began to praise Him and put Him in remembrance of all of those things that have been prophesied at the same time confessing His word over everything.

I told Him that I didn’t need to know how He would work it out and that I knew He had me regardless.  I have been in that area of “perfect peace” resting in  Him knowing if I had to walk away from it all, He still had me and would provide for me.

Still making calls about the money owed to us, I finally rested in that as well and really didn’t care whether it came in or not just trusting and praising Daddy.  I knew in my spirit that something had shifted in my situation and I began to praise Him in a different way.

Yesterday, my youngest son got a refund check from college and it is for almost exactly the amount that I need to cover the Property Taxes.  This doesn’t even take into account the other funds that I am waiting to receive.  Yesterday was when He placed very strongly in my spirit that He had taken care of everything.

I deposited the check today and when it clears, Hallelujah.  When He blesses me financially, since last year it has always been a “double portion” which is exactly what it turned out to be this time as well.

I needed to be reminded to refocus my sights on my Daddy and trust Him no matter what.  When I have done that it the past, Him moves overnight.  I call it resting in the Abba Zone which centers my thoughts and my praise solely on Him.  He is so good.

Another testimony for someone I have been mentoring and interceding for a breakthrough:

Cheryl told me that a young lady I had been praying for and mentoring that God was about to do something miraculous in her life.  I didn’t know who at the time because I intercede for so many people.  Yesterday this young lady posted a message on her Facebook that had me concerned.  It was a cry to Daddy for help.  Praying He had me to contact her.  Within 20 minutes of the prayer (she had financial need to be met), I shared with her what Daddy had said about her.  She checked her account and there was a deposit that she was not expecting which took care of that need.  Breakthrough again!

Daddy also said that the Breakthrough’s in people’s lives are going to be like a chain reaction for those that are ready to receive.  Hallelujah!



Today, I went to go and have lunch with my dear friend Shirley. After many years, it was good to see her. Anyway, as I looked down at my wedding ring, I realized my diamond was missing from my ring. I was so upset through the whole lunch, I could not even eat. But as I came home, and wrote in my blog, about my prayer, and how great God is, I called another dear friend, Marilyn, and asked her to pray for me.

As she began, to pray, she said: “Father, you know where this diamond was created, whether in Africa or Brazil, and you know where it is”….as she said that, I walked right into our kitchen, and as I looked on the floor, there it was shiny.

And I picked it up and began crying and screaming I found it. But it reminded me of this scripture, and I pray you take this to heart as well. God answers prayer.     


This is what exactly happened, as my friend began her prayer. I thank God, for her prayer and for his answer. Please, please, please know….God hears you and me, when we pray, he loves us all. I am in awe of him now, and I just know….How great God is. Blessings, and much love, Elena  

Father, thank you for the testimony of this, may it bring you honor praise, and glory.  I so appreciate your love and considerations in this matter.  I shout it to the Mountain tops, how great you are.  I will never, ever forget this, and I thank you so very much.  May you receive all glory honor and praise.  May people read this and be in awe, and say, wow….if God could do that for her, he could do that for me, for you are not a respecter of persons.  YES, HALLELUJAH!! You are the King of Kings, and ever so kind, I am in awe.  Thank you Lord.  In your love, thank you, Amen

Today I received what I thought was junk mail and ‘for some reason’ opened it instead of throwing it away.  I’m glad the Holy Spirit prompted me to as in it was a notice from a media company saying that I would be charge $5.50 per month for a listing in their directory unless I sent a fax saying that I wished to OPT OUT of this.  I was very unhappy when I saw that.  I never ordered the listing.  They were going to put it in and charge me without my approval.  I called the number listed but the phone never rang.  I called the operator who had the same problem.  I’m getting more and more disturbed about this as it just doesn’t seem right.  I finally got through on the other number listed and told them I was upset about this.  The lady said she wasn’t there when the mailings went out and she would remove my listing from the paid and free listings.  I thanked her and hung up.

I could have thrown this away as well as all the following bills and then been caused trouble with collectors, which wouldn’t have stood up in court. But who wants to go to court for something that shouldn’t have happened in the first place?  I was spared that by our loving Father.

I’m amazed, and yet not, at how God protects us not just from physical harm but financial as well if we listen to His promptings.  Thank You, Holy Spirit!
