About the Book

As the creator of hit shows like Roseanne and Home Improvement, Matt never focused on red carpets and glitzy parties during his lengthy and successful career in the entertainment industry. Rather, he says, what sustained him, guided him, and inspired him were divine glimpses of goodness and grace. A collection of personal essays, Glimpses: A Comedy Writer’s Take on Life, Love, and All That Spiritual Stuff, showcases those moments from his private life and career, and encourages readers to search them out in their own lives, because, as Matt says, once “I started consciously looking for God’s goodness…I found it everywhere.”
