A spirited mind never stops within itself; it is always aspiring and going beyond its strength; it has impulses beyond its powers of achievement.     – Montaigne

A Spirited Mind is a blog devoted to living a thoughtful life in the midst of working, parenting, homeschooling, and the busyness of modern life.  You’ll find weekly book reviews on topics ranging from literary fiction to education to spiritual life to time management and everything in between.  I also write about homeschooling, parenting, juggling responsibilities, and the bigger issues that tie them all together.

Thank you for reading!

    I followed a blog link to yours for a recipe. As I viewed other items from your site I saw an entry about Connor Prairie. I figure you must live in Indiana so I just wanted to say ‘Hello!’ to a fellow Hoosier! I am in Purdue Country myself. Have a Blessed Day!

    I so appreciate your blog and have found many great books through your recommendations. I wrote a book review today on my blog about Ben Carson’s “Take the Risk.” I thought of you when I read it and wanted to recommend it to you as I thought you might find it helpful.


    Blessings, Julie
