Singer and teen author Natasha Bure is hoping to inspire people to be the best versions of themselves, releasing a new book this week aimed at helping guide her peers through life’s oft-times difficult challenges.
Bure, daughter of “Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure and author of “Let’s Be Real: Living Life as an Open and Honest You,” stopped by the Faithwire newsroom on Monday to discuss her faith, music career and plenty more.
“I think one of the biggest things is to just stay true to who you are and to stand by what you stand by,” she said while offering up advice for young people who might be struggling to hold onto their values amid an increasingly difficult cultural atmosphere.
Bure encouraged her peers not to waver, and explained how she relies on those closest to her to help her stay on the right path.
“My friends and my family play a huge role in that,” she said, adding that she’s a firm believer that it’s essential to surround oneself with good people.
Listen to what Bure had to say about life and her new book below:
In the end, Bure said she simply wants to encourage people to aspire to be their best selves.
“Be the best person that you can be,” Bure said, telling listeners not to compare themselves to “society’s standard of perfection.” In her own life she said she uses her own unique gifts and abilities as best she knows how, and encouraged others to do the same.
Bure is hoping readers of “Let’s Be Real” can take away tips that will help them learn and grow, explaining that the idea to write the book came after she started seeing how girls and boys, alike, often compare themselves to what they see on social media — something she said simply isn’t healthy.
“I wanted to talk about what it’s like to be a real teenager,” Bure said. “And the struggles that everyone goes through no matter what age you are.”
Bure also talked about her decision to have good friend Sadie Robertson pen the foreward for the book, explaining how the two met a few years ago while Robertson was a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”
“I love Sadie,” Bure said. “Everything that she stands for I absolutely love … she’s just a good friend of mine, so I really wanted her to be a part of this project.”
