Candace Cameron Bure has spoken publicly about her Christian faith over the years. In the early days of the pandemic, she shared how her faith helps her cope with hard times.
“My faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation of who I am,” she told TODAY in April 2020. “My faith is so important to me whether in celebration or in challenges like this pandemic. 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.”
