WHO IS LEANN THIEMAN?

From Chicken Soup for the Father & Daughter Soul

Who Is LeAnn Thieman?

LeAnn Thieman is a nationally acclaimed professional speaker, author and nurse who was “accidentally” caught up in the Vietnam Orphan Airlift in 1975. Her book, This Must Be My Brother, details her daring adventure of helping to rescue 300 babies as Saigon was falling to the Communists. An ordinary person, she struggled through extraordinary circumstances and found the courage to succeed. LeAnn and her incredible story have been featured in Newsweek Magazine’s “Voices of the Century” issue, FOX-TV News, PAX-TV’s It’s a Miracle and countless radio and TV programs.

Today, as a renowned motivational speaker, she shares life-changing lessons learned from her airlift experience. Believing we all have individual “war zones,” LeAnn inspires audiences to balance their lives, truly live their priorities and make a difference in the world.

After her story was featured in Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul, LeAnn became one of Chicken Soup’s most prolific writers, with stories in eleven more Chicken Soup books. That, and her devotion to thirty years of nursing, made her the ideal co-author of Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul. Her life-long practice of her Christian faith led her to co-author Chicken Soup for the Christian Woman’s Soul. All of the above earned her the honor of co-authoring Chicken Soup for the Caregiver’s Soul and now Chicken Soup for the Father and Daughter Soul.

LeAnn and Mark, her husband of thirty-five years, reside in Colorado where they enjoy their “empty nest.” Their two daughters, Angela and Christie, and son, Mitch, have “flown the coop” but are still drawn under their mother’s wing when she needs them!
