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

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 take you along with me.

I love beauty. I‘m a beauty seeker and appreciator. I’m a writer with an eager heart that’s open to wonder and awe and excited about sharing the beauty that I find in daily life. I believe that beauty points to something greater, something bigger than ourselves. It hints at the transcendent. It points to hope, and hope is something we all need.

Speaking of daily life, my husband and I live outside a large city in a quiet neighborhood with woods and wildlife. Our daughter goes to college in another large city with its own beauty. I miss her every day, but we see her as often as we can.

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 daily life.

I hope you enjoy Glimsen. Have a beauty-filled day!

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, that’s even better.

Thank you for stopping by! Please take a look around while you‘re here. You can:
