Balancing it All by Candace Cameron Bure

About the Book:

How do you do it all?”

That’s the question that wife, mom, actress, and best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure is often asked. And it’s a question that women everywhere are asking themselves as we seek to balance all of our roles, responsibilities, and opportunities.

So, how do we do it? Working since the age of 5, Candace has been in a balancing act for nearly her entire life. She is the first to tell you that there is no miracle formula for perfect execution in every area of your life, but there definitely are some lessons to be learned, lessons that come to life in Candace's story.

Come along and dig into Candace’s story from her start in commercials, the balance-necessitating years on Full House, to adding on the roles of wife and mom while also returning to Hollywood. Insightful, funny, and poignant, Candace’s story will help you balance it all.

My Thoughts:

It's so easy to look at the life of a celebrity and think he or she has it so easy.  But we're just people, people.  Candace might have access to more resources than the average wife and mom, but she's still a wife and a mom, and heavily involved in the lives of her family.

So, what's it like to have all the opportunities and responsibilities and live in the public eye?  Candace writes about her everyday life as well as her journey to being a celebrity, and how she's kept it all in perspective.

It's no secret that Candace is a devoted  follower of Jesus, as is her brother Kirk Cameron.  So expect a lot of Scripture, a lot on prayer, and a lot of transparency.  She's honest about both her successes and her missteps.  And she comes across as someone you could hang out with at the gym or over coffee.

I enjoyed reading about her life and all she's learned.  My husband was quick to get me my copy when I asked, and I'd recommend it.  It's not deep, but it's enjoyable.

Happy Reading!
