It’s been a year since Candace Cameron Bure voluntarily exited her co-hosting role on “The View,” leaving the popular talk show to focus more intensely on family and her busy acting career.
And in a recent appearance on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast,” Bure looked back on her experience, offering up some essential advice for Christians who might sometimes find themselves alone in their worldview.
“It challenged me. I like my brain to work,” she said of her own experience as the odd woman out on “The View.” “I want to continue to grow and learn as I get older.”
Bure also offered up advice to others who might find themselves — like she was on “The View” — as one of the only people with a Christian worldview.
“It’s okay to be the only one in the room that thinks like that, and it’s not weird,” she said. “You don’t have to be ashamed of it.”
Listen to her share these thoughts around the 9-minute mark below:
While Bure said that it is the tendency of many people to “shy away” when they know people disagree with their worldview, she argued that holding back “closes us off.”
“My encouragement is to know what you believe. You don’t have to have all the answers,” she said. “Invest the time to know what you believe so if you do have those conversations you’re confident.”
In the end, Bure encouraged Christians to be “part of the solution” by serving as good representatives of what they believe. This, she said, is accomplished by “being the light of Christ” and showing love in these interactions.
