Candace Cameron Bure Reflects on ‘Difficult’ Year: ‘I’m Very Grateful For God’s Protection And Love’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Candace Cameron Bure is reflecting on a difficult past year and showing gratitude for her loved ones and her faith for getting her through tough times. 

“I’ve had a very difficult year on a personal level, which has really shown me who my true friends are,” the actress explained, listing the death of co-star and close friend Bob Saget, a fire in her office, and loved ones’ health issues. 

“It felt like a lot of loss this year,” the actress continued. “When you have those friends that are there and show up; I’m grateful. I’m so grateful to my friends, my true friends and my family, of course. Just seeing what so many of us and our loved ones have gone through over the last three years … I’m so, so grateful for my health and my family’s health. And I am grateful for true friendship.”

Bure also shared how her faith has been a great comfort during these difficulties. 

“My faith is so the core and foundation of who I am that sometimes I don’t verbally acknowledge it because it’s just my assumption,” she shared. “It’s like, well, ‘If you get Candace, you get faith.’ It’s one and the same. It is with me all the time. It is in all that I do. I’m very grateful for God’s protection and love.”

In addition to talking about past struggles, Bure discussed her work in Christmas movies. 

“I never imagined that I would be known for a Christmas movie career,” she laughed. I’ve done one every year. I love it.”

She continued, “It truly is [my] favorite time of the year. I love all the things associated with Christmas and how it makes people feel. Warm and happy and merry … and also emotional, depending on what’s happened during the seasons or loved ones that have you’ve lost. It just brings up a lot of emotions. To be associated with something that is so beautiful has been an incredible part of my career.”

Bure is getting ready for the release of her first Christmas movie with Great American Family, A CHRISTMAS…PRESENT. Movieguide® previously reported on the partnership:

Candace Cameron Bure is getting ready for her first movie with GAC Family to premiere!

The actress left Hallmark in April, but quickly partnered with GAC to continue creating and starring in content. 

Bure’s first movie with GAC is called A CHRISTMAS…PRESENT and will premiere on the network in November. 

The actress stars as Maggie, a Type-A real estate agent who takes her family to spend the holidays with her widowed brother and his daughter. The siblings have very different ideas about how to spend Christmas and, after “a series of transformative events,” Maggie learns the true meaning of Christmas.

In a statement about the upcoming movie, Bure shared, “A CHRISTMAS…PRESENT is about slowing down enough to recognize what’s right in front of our eyes. The hustle and bustle of the Christmas season will arrive before we know it but it’s through the quiet moments that we hear God speak to us, directing our path to what’s most important.”

A CHRISTMAS…PRESENT was conceived and developed through Bure’s Candy Rock Entertainment company, and is its first project since signing with GAC. 

“I am thrilled to be kicking off our partnership with a must-see film like A CHRISTMAS…PRESENT,  which will delight our fans this holiday season and is indicative of the memorable movies and family-friendly entertainment that Great American Media is looking forward to creating with Candace and the Candy Rock team,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO of Great AmericanMedia.
