Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Ultimate Blog Party 2012
Welcome to my family/homeschool-related blog! My name is Urailak (aka "LivingforGod" around bloggyworld and "Fruit Bearer" on Facebook). I have been blissfully married to my beloved Godly husband for over 20 years. We have three children (18 yo daughter, 13 yo son, and 10 yo son). Our daughter, Alyssa, is a freelance writer whose work has been published by various online and print publications. Her short story e-book, Deadly Delirium, was released by the Euterpe Imprint of Musa Publishing on February 24, 2012.  Our 13 yo son has anxiety disorder but thanks be to God, he is doing quite well. Our 10 yo son is participating in Steps for Life (an annual fund-raising event for Pregnancy Resource Centers). You can visit his personal fund-raising webpage here. Our family loves God and desires to be used by Him for His glory and His kingdom. We enjoy hosting a weekly dinner and Bible study for the international students who attend a local university. The name of our fellowship is "LJ Fellowship" which stands for Loving Jesus or Love in Jesus or Loving J.O.Y. (Jesus Others You).

I have been blogging since 2006 (previously at I also do product reviews and giveaways on my blogs. My main blog is "Living for God" and I also have a photo blog. My Facebook page is Christ Alone. Please stop by and visit when you get a chance :).
