Meet LeAnne

Welcome to Glimsen. I’m so glad you’re here! My name is LeAnne Martin. I’m a writer and speaker, a wife and mom.

Glimsen, a Middle English term, means to shine faintly with a wavering light, to glimmer. To give or catch a glimpse of.

In this space, Glimsen means me sharing a glimpse, a glimmer, of beauty with you. I believe that seeing and noticing the beauty around you will brighten and enrich your life like it has mine. And I can’t wait to share those glimpses with you.

I love beauty. I’m a beauty-seeker and -appreciator. Do I have a degree in aesthetics, or art, or music, or landscape design? No.

What I do have is an eager heart that’s open to wonder and awe. And excited about sharing the beauty that I find in daily life.

Speaking of daily life, my husband, daughter, and I live with our big, gorgeous dog outside a large city. Our house is filled with colorful folk art set in a quiet neighborhood with woods and wildlife. 

I love my family and friends, my church and community. I love writing and reading and taking snapshots of the moments and days that make up our family’s life.

My other favorite thing to do is to hang out with my people over a meal that I didn’t cook. If chocolate is involved, well then, that’s even better.

So, thank you for stopping by! Please take a look around while you’re here.
