Candace Cameron Bure isn’t going to be picky about who her kids choose to date. However, she says she does have one requirement.
The Full House and Fuller House star sat down with Us Weekly recently for an interview. It was there where the popular actress explained she has asked her kids to date people who “love Jesus.”
“When it comes down to it, I just want [their significant others] to love Jesus the way I love Jesus,” Bure said in the video interview. “That’s all I really want.Is that too much to ask for? Yeah. It’s not too much.”
Candace Cameron Bure, of course, is known for her role as DJ Tanner on Full House and Fuller House. And she is coming up on her 25th-anniversary date. She married former professional ice hockey player Valeri Bure back on June 22, 1996. So, it’s safe to say she knows how to maintain a happy marriage. She says that her faith plays a big part in that.
“My faith is really the foundation of who I am,” Cameron Bure said. “It’s so important to me. And it’s always a part of me, whether it’s at home and privately, or when I’m reading the Bible in Bible study. But also at work, and the choices I make within work, and the companies I choose to work with and the projects that I choose to take on.”
Kids of Candace Cameron Bure Have a Good Role Model to Look Up To
The 45-year-old actress is a mom to three children: Natasha, 22, Lev, 21, and Maksim, 19. According to Us Weekly, each of her kids is actively dating. And because their mother is so vocal about her strong Christian faith, it’s likely they know exactly what to look for in their own partner.
“The Bible to me is truth,” Cameron Bure went on. “I can always go back to the word of God and find the hope, the encouragement, the positivity, the trust that I know I have in Jesus. And so it never fails, even when life doesn’t go the way I want it to or had planned it to. I know that God’s in control of everything.”
Meanwhile, although her kids are free to choose who they date, momma Bure isn’t against the idea of setting them up with someone she has in mind.
“If you know they’re from a good family and you know they might get along, we’ll do that for sure,” she admitted.
It has definitely been a time of retrospection for Candace Cameron Bure. As she helps her kids navigate the dating world, and as she looks back on her own 25 years of marriage, she surely has a lot of lessons learned and advice to give.
