Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure recently celebrated 20 years of marriage to NHL player Valeri Bure, and said that it was God’s grace that made it possible.
The Christian Post reports that Cameron Bure posted a picture of her wedding day to Facebook, along with a post about the reality of what marriage has been like for her.
"Let's be real for a second. We are celebrating 20 years of marriage today. 22 years together as a couple. I couldn't be more proud to be here and love my man the way I do. But let me assure you it hasn't been all roses the whole journey," Bure wrote. "There have been several tough years, in a row, ups and downs, bad attitudes and bad decisions, but we've persevered. We rode them out. We loved each other through them."
Cameron Bure has three children with her husband. Her acting career began as a child when she starred on the show Full House. She later took a break from acting to focus on her family.
In 2014, Cameron Bure reentered the spotlight with a role as co-host of The View, as well as a role in the reboot of Full House.
Through all the ups and downs and life changes, Cameron Bure says she and her husband kept the focus on God.
"We kept the focus; God's glory. We are both better for it. I'm so grateful and thankful for the man I married. Neither of us are perfect, far from it, and will continue to make mistakes because we are human. But God's Word and His grace see us through- striving to be the best of ourselves in Him. To God be the glory. Thank you for an awesome 20 years together. I pray for another 60. Amen.”
