As a woman who’s bold and vocal about her Christian faith, Candace Cameron Bure never fails to use her celebrity status as a platform to shine the light on Jesus. Whether it’s regarding marriage, parenting, or politics, Bure is constantly affirming how integral her Savior is in every aspect of life.
As a natural extension of her faith, she’s also quite invested in the dating life of her children, as she revealed in an June 11th interview with US Weekly.
During the interview promoting her Hallmark series Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Til Death Do Us Part, Bure was asked what kind of dating advice she gives her kids.
Her response was simple, yet powerful.
The actress said she wanted her children to find a companion who will “love Jesus the way I love Jesus.”
Those seven words pretty much sum it up.
“That’s all I really want,” she added with a smile and giggle. “Is that too much to ask for? Yeah. It’s not too much.”
The proud mother of three expressed enthusiasm for her children’s dating lives in the past as well, noting confidence that they are level-headed and grounded enough to make good decisions.
“I feel great about them dating in the sense that they have a good head on their shoulders,” Bure told Us Weekly back in 2019. “They’re all looking for good people to hang out with, or date, looking for a wife, looking for a husband and I’m proud of that… I wish that they would date more in a sense!”
The Fuller House star, who’s been married to Valeri Bure for over two decades, knows a thing or two about what it takes to ground a lasting relationship in Christ.
Candace and Valeri have three children together; daughter Natasha (22), and sons Lev (21) and Maksim (19).
“I’ve been married for 24 years,” Bure said in a recent interview with PEOPLE. “I’m a Christian, my husband’s a Christian and I’m really proud that we’ve managed to stay married for 24 years.”
