Candace Cameron Bure is now a committed Christian — but it wasn't always that way. She says on her website that, even though she grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ at age 12, "church became more of an afterthought."
She had a good life and was part of a hit TV show Full House. It wasn't until she read a certain book that her Christian life began to change.
The book she read? It was "Left Behind", part of a series by Tim and Beverly La Haye. In the book, there was one character that stood out to her. It was Pastor Bruce Barnes, and he was left behind when Jesus came and gathered his church.
Candace Cameron began to wonder, how could someone be left behind and be a pastor? This started her on a journey to discover more about her relationship with God. She ended up getting really serious about her faith, and it is that personal commitment to Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior that helps her today as she is a spokesperson for Christ and stands up for God even in the midst of secular media.
