The Christian actress took part in the rite this past weekend, drawing tears of joy from her mother, Candace Cameron Bure.
At 23 years of age, Natasha Bure is - in our opinion - among the most talented young Christians in the acting game. She comes from good bloodlines, of course, being the daughter of Candace Cameron Bure, Hallmark's biggest star, and the niece of popular Christian actor Kurt Cameron. In fact, as we reported last month, Natasha played a younger version of her mother's lead character in the most recent installment of Aurora Teagarden Mysteries.
The two women also share their Christian faith, which is something Candace speaks about regularly, using her fame to proclaim the Gospel. Natasha, whose Instagram bio says "Saved by GRACE through Faith," made a public declaration of her own beliefs this past weekend when she was baptized in Southern California.
The event took place at Shepherd Church in the Los Angeles area and lead pastor Dudley Rutherford performed the baptism, which you can watch via this link to Natasha's Instagram page. In her post, she writes, "God is GOOD! ❤️ Today was a special day," adding that she is "Livin for the Lord!! 🙏🏻"
Candace Cameron Bure wrote the following in the comment section: "I’m still crying my eyes out 😭. Praise the Lord 🙌🏼. This mama is overwhelmed by God’s goodness and grace. I love you baby ❤️." On her own social media page, she added that "there's nothing that tops this day," before writing that her "three adult children have now all professed their faith, love, service and devotion to Jesus Christ; Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Savior of the world 🙌🏼."
We realize there's a bunch of emojis in there - it is social media after all - but that in no way diminishes the profound nature of what's taken place here as a committed Christian mother has helped shepherd her children into the Faith. And we at Christian Film Blog are thankful that Candace Cameron Bure and now Natasha Bure are both boldly using their fame to proclaim their devotion to Christ.
