Actress Candace Cameron Bure has long been known for her role as D.J. Tanner in "Full House" and the more recent reboot "Fuller House," among a plethora of other popular roles including the film, "Finding Normal."
But Bure is also known for her authentic Christian faith, her defense of the Bible and her open touting of the power of prayer. Let's explore some of the "Finding Normal" star's most powerful quotes about faith, God and scripture:
“My faith is just my life..."
Candace Cameron Bure lives an authentic faith, often explaining how it's simply a part of who she is, with her Christian walk guiding her in personal and professional matters:
"My faith is just my life, it’s a part of it. It naturally flows from me and I feel like I’ve navigated my entire career differently than most people have. The goal for me isn’t necessarily the next project or making more money or being a bigger star. I’ve always chosen the things that are true to me and that I’ve wanted to do.”

"The lightbulb went off in my head..."
In sharing how she came to accept Christ, the actress inspires others to consider how they, too, can find peace. She describes the moment as one that led a "lightbulb" to go off in her head, and she asked God to never let the flames of her faith go out:
“I prayed that day when literally the lightbulb went off in my head. I prayed, ‘God, please do not let this fire ever go out from under me.’”
"I’m constantly having conversations with God."
The "Finding Normal" star routinely speaks about the power of prayer, and has said she is "constantly having conversations with God" throughout each day. Here's what Candace Cameron Bure told podcast host Heather MacFadyen back in 2018:
“Now sometimes I literally have to roll out of my bed and onto my knees every morning and start my day. I don’t feel connected if I don’t do that. But throughout my day I’m constantly having conversations with God. It might just be under my breath asking Jesus to help me because I want to snap at that person right now or I’m going to lose it with my son who just talked back to me. It’s a constant dialogue and I trust that He hears me.”
The trust that God hears her is fascinating, and offers us a glimpse into the power of her faith.
"God’s in control..."
When life feels out of control, Candace Cameron Bure remembers that the Lord is always in control. The actress told Fox News that she can always find peace through Him:
"I know that God’s in control of everything."
This is a powerful reminder that can give us solace when we least expect it — and when we need it most.
"I Continue to Stay in God's Word..."
In addition to prayer, Candace Cameron Bure also relies on scripture to navigate life, telling "Today" earlier this year that her faith in Jesus is "the foundation of who I am." She added:
"I continue to stay in God’s word, the Bible, so I am comforted by truth and the hope God gives to all humanity and not allow fear to drive my emotions or decisions."
The "Finding Normal" star's reliance on prayer to keep herself grounded — a powerful example for us all.
"God gives hope..."
Candace Cameron Bure also offered a truly simply proclamation about hope during her "Today" interview, encouraging fans to seek out God in their everyday lives:
“God gives hope to all who ask Him for it. Seek Him."
It's easy to feel disconnected or scared in today's world. But it's important to know that we can seek God out and find peace through Him. This quote helps remind us of this essential reality!
