First Blog Party Here

Welcome to my blog!  My name is Urailak (Thai name) Liljequist (Scandinavian name).  I am known in the blog world as "LivingforGod" and on Facebook as "Fruitbearer."  I am a Christ-follower, Bible-believer, daughter & servant of the King of kings, the helpmeet/blessed wife of my beloved Godly husband, blessed homeschool mom of three precious blessings, a sister in Christ, and friend to all.  I was born and grew up in Thailand. I first came to the U.S. in 1989 to study for my master's degree. In September of this year, I had my half and half day :).  After I graduated, I got married to the love of my life (we met in 1988) in 1991; we celebrated our 18th anniversary last month.  I desire to honor and glorify the Lord in everything I say and do, including blogging.  I hope that it is evident to all :).  Soli Deo Gloria!

I like the name of this party, "Harvest of Friends" :); last month, I posted about a different kind of harvest, Plentiful Harvest.  I am so glad that you decided to stop by and visit today.  Please take a look around and leave me a comment.  Below are my answers to some of the questions that Lynnette Kraft at Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground, the hostess of Harvest of Friends Blog Party, came up with for us to get to know one another better and other questions I got tagged on Facebook.

    I usually don't eat while blogging; however, I occasionally have some chocolate :).
   
2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without?
     I wouldn't want to live without Christ.  But for "thing," it would be my Bible.

3. Beach, Mountains or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice?
    Farm near beach and mountains :).

4. Prefer parties and socializing or staying at home with the fam?
    I prefer staying at home with the fam.  If I socialize, my family is usually with me.

    I don't wear make up.

14. Are you a big spender or frugal?
