CANDACE CAMERON BURE
Shares 3 Words Guiding Her
as She 'Builds Bridges' Between Hollywood, Faith Community
by Leah Marieann Klett,
actress Candace Cameron Bure has shared how
Christians can lovingly engage with that hard-to-love
person and the three words that guide her as she bridges
the divide between the faith community and Hollywood.
"Kindness always wins," Bure told Matthew Faraci, host of The Dove
Channel's original series "Frankly Faraci." "No
matter what, kindness wins. It doesn't mean backing
down; there's a difference. I can stand my ground and
keep the love and be kind."
"I feel like Christians, we have to stop proving it. God's already done
that, and God can do that with that person when they
need to, but it's not our job to force a person to
change and understand," the actress continued. "That's
the Holy Spirit's job, not ours. So, when you take down
that defensive wall of, 'I have to convince this person
and they have to think like me,' I find that taking that
wall down is through compassion."
Bure has worked in Hollywood for over 30 years, from
starring as D.J. Tanner on the hit sitcom Full
House to competing on Dancing with the Stars,
co-hosting The View and starring in a slew of
original films on the Hallmark Channel. Over the years,
she, like her brother, Kirk Cameron, remained
outspoken about her Christian faith and how it
influences every project she tackles.
Cast - Then and Now
"I'm trying to be a bridge builder," she said of being a
Christian in Hollywood, "because I think that both sides
can get misunderstood because we always see the worst of
people on either side...and I don't think the majority
of people are really like that...let's just hear each
other out and talk and try to understand each other in a
nice and kind and respectful way."
Bure found herself to be the only conservative Christian on The View,
regularly sparring with her more liberal co-hosts,
including Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné, and
Joy Behar. Before leaving the talk show in 2016,
Bure tackled a series of hot-button issues, including
prayer in public schools, abortion, and the
controversial presidential election.
didn't realize I had such a voice," she said of her time
on The View. "I still laugh to this day - how did
I get that seat? I just try to be me...yet, I didn't
realize that being vocal about my faith in Hollywood
would really ultimately get me that seat at The View,
because I wasn't looking to take that seat.
"It certainly grew me in ways that I never expected in my career and as a
person and to really be able to sit there with four
other people that would disagree with me 99% of the time
and not be hurt by that or take that personally."
Bure added that she did "ten times as much homework" as
her co-hosts, as she didn''t have a political background
or come from a political family.
"That was all very new," she said. "But, I didn't want to sit at that
table and not know what I was talking about or not have
specific opinion, and that was the great thing about
Still, the actress and author said she tries to have
"compassion and understanding" for everyone - even those
she doesn't agree with.
"I don't know what they're going through, because that person can judge
me so easily from the outside...but they don't know
what's going on my life, they don't know the really deep
personal stuff," she said. "So, if I look at that person
that I may be at opposite ends of in terms of what we
believe about a particular topic, I just always want to
have compassion and that, it lets my guard down and I
can just have a conversation and I don't feel like I
have to prove anything."

'Kind Is the New Classy':
Candace Cameron Bure's New Book on Staying True to God in
by Talia Wise, cbn news
Bure is best known for her TV-role as DJ Tanner in
"Full House." The revamped version of that series,
"Fuller House" with most of the original cast, including
Candace, was just renewed for its fourth season by Netflix.
She, of course, recently co-hosted of ABC's The View and has
starred as a regular in numerous Hallmark Channel original
films, many in the title role of the Aurora Teagarden Mystery
But many people may not know that the mother of three is also a producer,
jewelry designer, and New York Times best-selling author.
The Christian actress took to Instagram to share the cover and title of
her new book, Kind is the New Classy: The Power of Living
Graciously, which comes out at the end of April.
"I am so excited to
share the cover and title of my new book, "Kind is the New
Classy." It will release at the end of April, Candace tweeted
and posted on her Facebook page.
In the book, Bure
teaches women how to stand up for their Christian values in a
culture that is at odds with a Biblical lifestyle.
"How can you stay true to who God has uniquely created you to be in the
face of the script you've been given," the book''s description
asks. "What's more, how can you stand your ground with grace?"
Kindness is a primary focus in Bure's new book.
"Kindness always wins," the "Fuller House" actress told Matthew Faraci,
the host of the Dove Channel's original series "Frankly
Faraci," back in December.
"No matter what, kindness wins. It doesn't mean backing down; there's a
difference. I can stand my ground and keep the love and be
kind," she added.
