NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Reshaping It All: Motivation for

Spiritual and Physical Fitness by actress Candace Cameron Bure (“Full House,” “Make

It or Break It”) has debuted at No. 13 on The New York Times’ paperback advice &

miscellaneous best sellers list.

Bure, recently featured in People magazine and on NBC’s “Today” show, recounts

in the book her inspirational victory over food addiction and explains how she

keeps a healthy outlook on weight despite Hollywood’s toothpick-thin


The book, which moved onto The Times’ best seller list Feb. 20, was released

Jan. 1 by the B&H Publishing Group of LifeWay Christian Resources of the

Southern Baptist Convention.

Bure, now married with three kids, is a rare Hollywood mom who maintains a

normal life — no trainer, no nanny, no chef — and is outspoken about how her

Christian faith has helped to overcome various obstacles such as her struggle

with food. Reshaping It All helps women begin to embrace a healthier lifestyle

by moving faith to the forefront, making some wise fundamental choices about

diet and exercise, and finding their worth in God’s eyes.

“I knew who God was, but I still hadn’t grasped who I was in His sight,” Bure

writes. Now, with everything in proper perspective, she adds, “I’m 25 pounds

lighter than I was on Full House, have a full house of my own and feel better

than ever!”

“Candace has said that first and foremost she is a wife and mom,” said Jennifer

Lyell, B&H Publishing Group’s executive editor for women’s books.

“Her career as an actress comes after those most important roles,” Lyell

continued. “What we have observed from the tremendous response to Reshaping It

All is that readers really resonate with her as a wife, a mom, and as a trusted

friend they’ve grown up alongside. They connect with her as a woman not so

different than them. Her struggles, victories and resulting guidance are not

those of a sensational Hollywood tell-all, but rather of a day-to-day reality

with which we can all identify and respond.”

Bure starred for eight seasons on the hit ABC series Full House (still

syndicated in more than 100 countries) and is now a featured cast member of ABC

Family’s popular drama, Make It or Break It. She also is active among several

charities and speaks to women nationwide about her faith-based weight loss


Bure lives with her husband, National Hockey League star Valeri Bure, and their

three children in Los Angeles.
