Comedian and actor Dave Coulier’s “Full House” character Joey Gladstone had a fun-loving personality — one that doesn’t seem all that far from Coulier’s real-life nature.

Coulier, who stars in a new Pure Flix show “Live+Local,” recently offered Americans some words of encouragement regarding the divisive and hateful chaos plaguing our culture.
When asked to offer words of encouragement for those who might — like he once did — face struggles with alcoholism and addiction, Coulier offered a broad message to inspire all Americans.
“We’re having such a tough time in our world right now. People are … really at war with each other over a lot of things,” he said. “We need to get back to the United States of America — that word ‘united’ is really important. We’re not united right now, and we need to bring ourselves together.”
Coulier said “love” is the only thing that will bring Americans back into the fold with one another.
He also pointed back to his hit sitcom “Full House” to stress the show’s examples of kindness and love.
“If you go back to ‘Full House,’ you’ll see a lot of love. It’s a real simple thing,” he said. “It’s a good life lesson for us all to just think about — that word ‘love’ — before you start to really go after somebody because maybe they don’t agree with you.”
The actor said understanding people is important, even if disagreement abounds.
“I think we need to try and understand each other,” he said.
Loving God and loving others are two commands to which Christians are called. This balance of love and truth can be tricky in today’s culture, though it’s something for which believers must strive.
As CBN’s Faithwire previously reported, Coulier also spoke in the interview about finding sobriety and dealing with the recent deaths of loved ones — including fellow “Full House” star Bob Saget — Coulier was candid.
He shared how he and Saget met when Coulier was 18 and how their friendship and “Full House” tenure sparked a lifelong bond. Read more about that here.
