Candace Cameron-Bure credits her success to her faith
By Kevin Payne
Most people over 30 will remember Candace Cameron-Bure as the spunky D.J. Tanner from the popular 90’s sitcom Full House or the more recent Netflix spinoff, Fuller House. She also did a short stint as the single conservative voice on The View.
Candace recently spoke with Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about her Christian faith and how she credits God for her ability to enjoy a long and successful career in Hollywood.
“My Christian faith has always been a huge part of my life and I love to share it,” Bure said. “In the entertainment industry, a lot of people tell you to keep that part of your life to yourself because, entertainment tends to be more liberal, but I think the fact that I haven’t shied away from it and I am passionate about it is the reason I’ve been able to do as many of the projects and things that I’ve wanted to.”
Bure has never been shy about sharing her Christian convictions on camera. However, unlike her older brother Kirk Cameron, who is very outspoken about his faith and often films himself confronting people on the streets with their sins, Candace prefers to keep it more low-key. Bure said that while she is very open about her religious convictions, she doesn’t think being confrontational with people who do not agree with her views is the best way to share her faith.
“I don’t think you ever win anyone over by yelling at them or making them want to hide or run away from you. I think kindness will always win in the end.”
Bure told Stigal that she has always tried to stay true to who she is and not be ashamed of her faith. She added that she always tries to be respectful and listen to others who may have different opinions.
