Showstopper: Hollywood Actress Hopes Her Children Find Spouses Who 'Love Jesus the Way I Love Jesus'

Candace Cameron is an outlier.

She seems wholly embraced by Hollywood, but she sticks to family entertainment and frequently flaunts her faith.

She even took a turn as The View’s lone political conservative, yet she remains colossally uncanceled.

If you doubt her contrast with Tinseltown, take a look at a recent interview in US Weekly.

Speaking about her kids and who they date, Candace didn’t celebrate diversity.

In fact, her vision for them’s rather one-dimensional for the modern world.

“When it comes down to it,” the 45-year-old Fuller House star explained, “I just want [their significant others] to love Jesus the way I love Jesus.”

How many times has US Weekly printed that line?

Candace and her husband, retired hockey star Valeri Bure, have three children: Natasha, 22; Lev, 21; and Maksim, 19.

As for Natasha — who’s a great singer — it’s all about what’s right:

“She is dating, and I’m good with that. I’m happy. She has to date the right guys.”

Perhaps more than ever, there are a lot of the wrong guys.

Mom might even be open to setting up her first-born:

“If you know they’re from a good family and you know they might get along, we’ll do [that.] For sure.”

She’s been sporting the look of a good family for quite some time.

In my opinion, Candace did a fantastic job during her tenure on The View. She stood for her convictions while always coming across as kind.

She also never appeared to speak on things about which she was uninformed, which — so far as I can tell — is virtually unheard of on TV.

And it wasn’t always comfortable:

The actress, it seems to me, is a standout example of what an individual may best be: someone unashamed of what they believe, yet unencumbered by their views where friendships are concerned.

Apropos of that, she famously maintains close ties with her Full House costars, including raunchy standup comedian Bob Saget.

Candace takes her show to the live stage, too — that of the American Christian church:

Consider these clips as well:

Last September, she explained things to Fox News:

“God has changed me in ways that words can’t describe. He has transformed the way I think and live my life. Things that were once important to me are no longer. I can’t help but share the Good News with everyone!”

Hollywood has drastically changed over the years, in terms of its product and participants.

Politics has, too.

In both realms, I believe Candace is a good example for young girls, and a great example of what we can all be: people believing in something bigger than ourselves, who — in letting that light shine — may offer it to those experiencing darker times.

The world has enough islands. It needs more bridges.

I believe Candace has been just that.

And now, she hopes her children connect to people of faith, to continue her family’s legacy of belief.

It’s not a typical Hollywood hope.

But it used to be a popular American one.
