In an interview with Fox News, actress Candace Bure, 44, mentioned that she would rather be sharing Jesus than return to “The View” a popular talk show she co-hosted in 2016.
Bure told Fox News:
“I just don’t publicly want to talk about politics. Not because I don’t believe that my viewpoints and opinions are important but I would much rather share Jesus with people. That’s really my passion.”
The question came up because ABC’s popular daytime talk show is looking for another cohost after Abby Huntsman announced in July that she was leaving the show.
Candace left The View citing conflicts with her acting career and stating that travelling each week from California to New York for the show was proving hard on her and the family.
In an interview with Explore Entertainment, Candace explained her decision to leave:
“I tried to be Superwoman, but I’m gonna not try anymore.”
Candace rose to fame when she played the role D.J. Tanner in the popular TV series Full House. She continued the role in a remake on Netflix entitled The Fuller House.
In addition, she has had several guest roles on other TV shows and lead roles in made for TV movies including several on the Hallmark Channel where she also served as executive producer. She is currently working on two Hallmark movies being filmed in Canada.
Candace has written several books including Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction and a New York Times bestseller, Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness.
Candace married former Russian hockey star Valeri Bure in 1996, and they have three children. In an interview with OK Magazine she said that a key to a successful marriage lies in the Bible and God.
“Our marriage is grounded in the word of God. That’s really it. God is the core of our marriage, and the foundation and the blueprint for it is how we live, and being open and honest and communicating, but ultimately doing what pleases God, and not in a selfish manner.
In a testimony on her website, Candace said she didn’t grow up in a Christian family, but that changed when she was 12 years old and a friend invited her family to church.
Candace also goes into much more detail explaining her faith in Jesus and the motivation that governs her walk with God.
But I finally learned that God’s standard of goodness is different from the world’s standard, and for the first time I saw myself as a sinner. I really understood that I broke the law, that Jesus paid my fine, and that there was no love greater than that. He rescued me, He saved me, He delivered me, and knowing those truths led me to real repentance and change. Out of gratitude for what Jesus did for me, I started to live a life of service to Him, and my deepest desire is to hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
