Actress Candace Cameron Bure commemorated International Women’s Day with a heartfelt post about “what being a woman means” — and, not surprising considering her strong Christian faith, her proclamation invoked God.
“It means embracing my natural God-given qualities and characteristics as a woman,” Bure wrote. “Embracing my femininity, my love of beauty, feeling beautiful, my nurturing qualities and desire to protect and take care of others.”
And she wasn’t done there, as the actress went on to discuss possessing mental and emotional strength, while being “dependent on God.”
My girlfriend asked me what being a woman means to me and here’s what came to mind. It means embracing my natural God…
“It’s about being strong mentally and emotionally, but dependent on God, and an example to those around me, like my daughter and yours,” Bure continued. “At times it means being meek — having strength that is under control — not to be confused with weakness.”
She said that she loves being a woman and offered up accolades to other incredible women who have helped her become the person she is today.
