Review of the Book by Candace Cameron Bure
Recently a friend of mine and I took my oldest to meet Candace Cameron Bure. I was a fan of Full House and have seen a couple episodes of Fuller House, but honestly I was no more of a fan of Candace Cameron Bure than anyone else. My friend on the other hand saw something beautiful in her and strongly encouraged me to join her. I agreed because I love to read, and I heard it was a Christian book. I enjoyed myself immensely and she was truly kind.
Despite the great time, I did not have high hopes for the book. I bought one anyway, because why go to a book signing, if you are not going to purchase the book.
Candace Cameron Bure Displays Strong Christian Values
Now, I knew that she was a Christian. Since I watch very little TV and rarely read about celebrities, I assumed she had a watered down faith. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that her book promotes having a strong relationship with God, reading the Bible, and praying continuously. From the beginning to the end, she discusses how her faith has directed life in every area whether she is working, being a mom, or even working out. Her faith in God rivals other Christian speakers and writers. She is definitely a person worthy to look up to, in order to grow as a Christian.

Ignoring Our Natural Impulses
Even for those who do not have a Christian worldview, they would find that the overall message resonates with them. We all need to treat each other with respect and kindness. Sometimes that means ignoring our natural impulse and choosing to be kind, even when others are not. She talks about how even the simplest gesture can change someone's day. It is important for us to find those opportunities.
I strongly recommend for people to read this book. I am not affiliated with her nor was asked to write about this book. I just thought it was an excellent book to share with others.
After six years of infertility, she was blessed with the adoption of her oldest daughter who now is a teenager. Six years later, she finally became a mother a second time, this time with a baby through a donated egg and ivf. Throughout that time, she fostered nine babies and toddlers, met wonderful women who helped her grow, and learned to rely on Jesus. She started this blog with the hope that she could share her joy, experience, and willingness to grow with others, whether they battle infertility, toddlers, or teens.
