    Candace Cameron Bure has achieved a lot in life: actress, producer, author, wife, and mother. I first came to know of Candace from her role on Full House. But in this book she shows how much she has grown both personally and professional since that time. She truly does it all and in this book tells us how she keeps all the balls in the air. A great book!

    Seriously, your story's good and all, but sounds a lot like 'Strong Enough' by Ana. Jade is even in it!

    Memories of the Past (part two)

    Age 13/14<p> Zeke, Jade and I had reached the top of Pikes Peak. Jade looked at me with her jade green eyes as if to ask 'what now?' I shrugged in response because Zeke was the reason why we were up here. He said he had an old friend who lived up here that we should see before we continued on to Camp Jupitor.<br>Now here we were at the summit after a two and a half hour long trek up the moutian, there were almosts always monsters on the cog train Zeke said, and standing around looking like a bunch of idi<_>ots. The cog train started boarding to go back down the moutian and the tourists made their way out of the buliding.<br>"She should be here any time now." Zeke said scanning the rocks around a plaque. Jade sat down and looked off at the disant clouds.<br>I felt sorry for her cause she was only here out of loalyty to me. She could have stayed behind at the Greek camp instead of following Zeke and I across the counrty to the Roman camp.<br>It had begun to feel like my little quest to figure out who my godly parent is was useless. What if it turned out I wasnt a Roman demigod after all?<br>The cog train slowly rolled away back down th mountian. Zeek turned to face us, his hand on the hilt of his sword. "Its time."<br>"Where is she?" I asked looked behind him for a person.<br>"You know Elizia, this whole time I had you convinced you are a Roman demigod I was lying?" The tingle at the back of my neck started up. "I knew from the day I met you in that New York Subway that you were Greek. Then a certain god came to me in my dreams at Jades pathetic camp." Jade stood up brandishing her sword. "He was the one who cursed you Elizia. Do you know why? Because of what your mother did. You arent supposed to be alive, you are a stain on the tapestry of the gods!" His voice rose filling with emotions. In the pit of my stomach I felt an awakening power buliding. It was the very same curse he was talking about.<br>"He sent me to kill you, and Im going to." He pulled his sword out and advanced. Jade stepped in front of me to block him and the sounds of the blades rang out against the mountians. The power within me was growing faster than it ever had befoe. I backed away, I had promised myself I wouldnt let my power kill Jade. Zeke fought with the powers of his father beating her back towards me. I tried to get a grip on the power but I couldnt.<br>All of a sudden the powerful curse burst forth driving me to the ground, a violent cold wind picking up, the temprarure droping, and shards of ice flying everywhere.<br>Jade froze in place the force of the curse hitting her full on killing her mid-fight. Blocked by Jade mostly Zeke half fell and was half knocked over. He struggled to his feet the wind battering him down.<br>I new power grew in me, rage. It lent me the strenght to stand up and advance on the older teen. I drew my sword out of my boot as I went. Ice crackled down the lenght of it. Wind and snow blew around me as I stalked towards him. He feebly raised is sword backing out on a rock pile.<br>"Youre not going to win Zia! Im going to throw you down this moutian." He yelled into the wind as I attacked him. Rage fuled every strike, he was weak and I disarmd him with one swing. Fear lit in his eyes. I stabbed him in the heart the ice making it a jagged cut. Then I kicked out at his body, sending him flying off my blade and off the summit of the mountian.<br>I looked at Jade then turned to run back down the mountian. New York was where Id go now.

    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.

    Ok book

    Easy read about how Bure balances her life. Career. Marriage. Children and faith. Much stems from her family roots, shared views of her hubby and reinforced by their faith. Good advise. But see how with modern thinking some may be considered old fashion, out of date, or just not feasible. Pretty much good for married women with spouse that is seriously involved with family and strong traditional faith ideas.
    Not really a book for me.

    Enjoyable

    Although i don't have chiildren and most of her book is about juggling her life with children, it was an enjoyable book that i could agree with. I think for the most part, I got lots of vallidatioon in how I was juggling my own life.
