Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure recently expressed her excitement at meeting Beth Moore, calling the popular women's evangelist "my biggest influencer in life."

On her Facebook page, the former "Full House" star reveals that she was eating at her favorite restaurant when Moore and her two daughters were seated nearby:

"If you know me at all, you know I'm rarely speechless. I don't even get that excited meeting celebrities and I practically cried," writes Bure.

"Beth of my biggest influencers in life. She is the mentor I've never met. What a blessings God gave me, finally meeting these 3 God loving women. We are all just women, walking through life... But when Jesus is our common denominator, everything changes. Thank you Lord for your encouragement, simply by being able to meet someone who has inspired me beyond words can express. #dreamscometrue."

Bure also posted a sweet photo of herself with the Moore, with the caption, "Words can't fangirling right now!"

Moore is the founder of Living Proof Ministries, a Bible-based ministry which focuses on aiding women who desire to model their lives on Evangelical Christian principles. She has written numerous faith-based books for women including the bestsellers Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit and A Woman's Heart: God's Dwelling Place.

Bure has previously voiced her support for Moore, often recommending her Bible study books to other women.

"I've learned so much from [Moore] and she inspires me to walk my life with Jesus every day," she wrote.

The former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant, who has three children with husband Valerie Bure, also recently shared how her family's Christian faith impacts the holiday season.

"Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year and its so special, so meaningful," Bure told FOX & Friends. "With my family...we go to a homeless shelter in the morning when we wake up on Christmas...and serve 30-40 people, sit down eat with them, and share the gospel message.It's what we do."

"[There's] nothing wrong with gift giving at all," explained Bure. "But we like to give the gift first and share the message of Jesus Christ and then give presents after."
