Candace Cameron Bure: "Don't Only Quote The Bible, Walk The Walk"

Candace Cameron Bure, the actress known for her role as "DJ" in the show "Full House," is very open about her faith. She recently spoke at a Liberty University convocation where she encouraged students that as Christians they should do more than quote the bible. Bure says they should "walk the walk.”

Bure speaks about several aspects that are important to her. She shares how kindness shows off the character of God and how it's essential not just to recite the Bible, but also to do what the bible says and represent Christ.

Bure is a mother of three and is a well-known name in Hollywood. Because of her experience, she encouraged the student to be a light in multiple industries and to find their way after college.

“If you are not in every type of business out in the world, then who is going to be doing it?”

“If you are not in every type of business out in the world, then who is going to be doing it?”Bure asked. “We have to be in spaces that are not only in a Christian bubble. We have to get out there so we can be an influence on other people.”

Even though Bure is very honest about her faith, she shares that she is still careful in her choices for the roles she takes in the film industry. For example, she explains why she accepted the offer to co-host the daytime talk show “The View” for two seasons: “My whole goal for that show was to be kind and respectful and to represent Christ in my speech truly. When I talk to people, I want to listen, and have compassion, or empathy, or see where you are at in your life so that I can understand your point of view,” she continued. “I don’t know anyone that has ever changed because someone yelled and screamed at them.

I don’t win every battle, but I’m fighting (for my values). I know it's honoring to God,”

I don’t win every battle, but I’m fighting (for my values). I know it's honoring to God,” Bure added. "Every little difference, every little fight, makes a difference for God.”

In the “The Wendy Williams Show" she reveals that it is not always easy though. Her faith has not always been accepted. “I have experienced discrimination in the faith department for sure, in my career. But I don’t experience it so much right now,” Bure described. But nonetheless, Bure keeps firm to her believes and has even managed to have platforms like The Hall Mark Channel back up her values.
