As the creator of Roseanne and Home Improvement, producer of successful movies and plays Williams’s never focused on red carpets and Glitzy parties.  Looking back, Williams realized that throughout his life what sustained him, guided him, and inspired him were divine glimpses of goodness and grace.

Williams says, “When I started my quest to find little glimpses of God in everyday life, the clouds didn’t open, and a voice like rolling thunder didn’t call down to me. But I did start noticing simple acts of kindness, moments of grace that reflected God’s loving presence in the world. . . . This practice of noticing these glimpses changed my life. Instead of blasting my way through the week—competing, hurrying and scurrying, fighting for my personal space, my self-care, and my ego-based impulses—I started consciously looking for God’s goodness. And I found it everywhere.”


“This book is a braid of stories about family, a huge career, and God.  It utterly charmed me.  These stories are sometimes funny, sometimes tender and spiritually uplifting, sometimes all at once.”

Anne Lamott, New York Times best-selling author of “Help, Thanks, Wow.” “Some Assembly Required,” and “Bird By Bird.”

“Matt Williams, one of the greatest comedy writers of all time, tells the story of his life in ‘Glimpses.’ Incandescent, emotional and real, this collection is a primer on how to get the most out of life, love and work by a master craftsman who has lived it.

Adriana Trigiani, New York Times best-selling author of “The Good Left Undone”

“Matt Williams has done something extraordinary in this book:  he has revealed his flawed humanity so that we may see ourselves more honestly – and more hopefully.  I finished ‘Glimpses’ inspired to notice more, savor more, and most importantly – love more.  Not many books do that.”
