Former "Full House" actress Candace Cameron Bure, who has been criticized in the media for her blatant views on submission to her husband expresses that, while she enjoyed the time that she was able to invest in "The View," she does not regret leaving. The reason, she explains, is no more complicated than her desire for an expanded family life. It has nothing to do with political opinions or personal offense.

At times the only conservative on the show, Cameron undeniably faced pressure; she was, with her patience and love, also an effective witness. She shared her views without pretense or pride on the current president, as well as her reason for withdrawing from the spotlight - at least, temporarily:

“I don’t think any President is going to please everybody. It has never happened and it’s never going to," she said. "He has to stay on track with what he campaigned about and what his focus was and I think the people that voted for him will be pleased if he can accomplish those things.”

The 41-year-old sister of fellow actor Kirk Cameron intends to turn her focus more to her children, particularly, daughter Natasha, who aspires a musical career:

"I’ve always been supportive of her career and she wants a career in the music industry and I am there every step of the way and will always be there for her. She has a good head on her shoulders/ She knows mama and papa are watching out for her and I think she is aware of a lot of the pitfalls and the dangers, but she also knows all the great things that I have experienced.”

Candace has a personality to match her cherubic face, but her wisdom goes far beyond her appearance. She realizes that life is short and the span of motherhood to the degree that she is now privileged to own is quickly fleeting. Her children are already teenagers:

“I don’t regret leaving at all because my family is the most important part of my life and the commute from LA to New York every week was very difficult so I couldn’t be happier that I get to have that time with them. My kids are teenagers—I only have a few years left with them in the house before they move out so I just want to relish that time with them and having summer vacations is a part of that and creating memories with them.”

Candace is a refreshing breath of air and has maintained her faith in whatever venue or channel she has obtained a platform:

“We can be strong because of the Lord’s strength. We can stand with conviction because of the protection and guidance He offers us. If we don’t hold our lives together with God’s truth, we will never be able to stand firm. If we don’t know what our convictions are before the challenge comes, the world will decide them for us and we are destined to compromise.”
