Actress Candace Cameron Bure is known for living out an authentic Christian faith — something that’s generally perceived as a rarity in Hollywood.
Bure has worked and thrived for years in Tinseltown without compromising her values, with the actress recently telling “The Pure Flix Podcast” that living her beliefs out comes totally naturally.
“My faith is just my life, it’s a part of it. It naturally flows from me and I feel like I’ve navigated my entire career differently than most people have,” she said. “The goal for me isn’t necessarily the next project or making more money or being a bigger star. I’ve always chosen the things that are true to me and that I’ve wanted to do.”
Listen to Bure break down her life and faith:
Bure hasn’t said yes to everything that’s come her way. In fact, she’s said way more “no’s” in her career. But she said her decisions have always been respected in the Hollywood community.
“I just can’t not be who I am,” she said.
The actress went on to explain how she came to faith, noting that she and her family started going to church when she was 12 years old.
Her parents’ marriage was in trouble at the time, and the family was looking for answers and solace. While church helped reconcile her parents and introduced her to faith, it wasn’t until years later that she truly owned the Christian worldview for herself.
“I became a Christian by asking God to be my Lord and Savior at 12 years old … but it didn’t become my own until I was in my early 20s,” Bure said.
It wasn’t until she got married and had her own kids that she truly started thinking deeper about her faith. Bure was neither reading the Bible nor going to church frequently at the time, but that soon changed, and she realized the importance of true devotion to God.
