I love Candace Cameron Bure. She is just so genuine and not afraid to declare her Christianity. I love that she uses her public platform to proclaim her faith! A few months ago, I had opportunity to read her book Reshaping It All.
About the Book
Candace Cameron Bure first became known to millions as a co-star on the hit ABC television series Full House. Today, like her brother Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains, Fireproof), she is the rare Hollywood actor who is outspoken about her Christian faith and how it helps overcome certain obstacles.
Bure’s healthy lifestyle has been featured in US Weekly and People magazines as well as national talk shows including The View and NBC’s Today. In Reshaping It All, she continues the story, inspiring women to embrace a healthier lifestyle by moving faith to the forefront, making wise choices, and finding their worth in the eyes of God. Candace shares a candid account of her struggle with food and ultimately her healthy outlook on weight despite the toothpick-thin expectations of Hollywood.
More than a testimony, here is a motivational tool that will put readers on the right track and keep them there. In addition to practical advice, Candace offers a biblical perspective on appetite and self control that provides encouragement to women, guiding them toward freedom.
Includes 16-page black and white photo insert.

She lives in the Los Angeles area with her husband and three children.
Heidi Says . . .
I really enjoyed this book and I loved reading more about Candace’s life, both on Full House and now, as a wife and mother. I love that she is so down to earth and real. I feel like I could bump into her on the street and have a normal conversation with her.
I really loved the way each of the chapters in the book were set up – there was the main chapter itself, followed by “the Pantry” section (which contains the main idea of the chapter, a letter to Candace along with her reply, some practical advice, food for thought, a verse or quote that ties the chapter together, and a simple recipe). I can’t wait to try her Bacon Brussels Sprouts recipe (as soon as my Brussels Sprouts are ready to be harvested!)
My only “issue” with this book is that, as a “fat lady” I find it hard to take Candace’s weight loss tips too seriously, since (to me) she never had much of a weight problem. I look at her and see a slim, trim woman (who maybe had a little baby fat back in her Full House days) – I certainly don’t see anyone who has ever struggled with weight issues like I have.
But, I do really respect the things that she’s learned and the ideas that she’s trying to express. If I could learn to treat food the way God intended it, as simply a means to keep me alive but not to be something that I regard so highly, I could probably make a big difference in my life!
So, even though I may not necessarily recommend the book to my friends who need to lose weight, I would highly recommend it just because it’s a great book to read!
