Actress Candace Cameron Bure refuses to cave to pressure in Hollywood and regularly stands up for her Christian beliefs.
Proving she won’t be canceled, Bure won two top prizes at the 30th annual Movieguide Awards in Los Angeles.
Bure, who gained massive popularity by appearing on “Full House,” received the Grace Award for TV performance for appearing in “A Christmas…Present.”
The Christmas film also won the award for “Best Family Television.”
“My heart is full of gratitude and love,” she said in response. Bure thanked her new network, Great American Family, and its CEO Bill Abbott.
Bure thanked the network for the ability to “share scripture and the name of Jesus on cable television.”
“I’m pretty darn excited for my company @CandyRock.Entertainment!” she said. “Our first movie out of the gate, A Christmas…Present and we won Best Family Television from @MovieGuide Awards.”
“Massive thank you to @BillAbbottHC and @gactv for being unashamed to share scripture and the name of Jesus on cable television and for your dedication to faith and family entertainment.”
“And guys- I won the Grace Award for TV performance in A Christmas… Present. This award honors the most inspirational performance that best displays God’s grace toward us as human beings.”

More on this story via Western Journal:
Abbott was ousted in 2020 as CEO of Crown Media — the parent company of the Hallmark Channel — amid left-wing outrage over his move to pull four commercials that promoted same-sex marriages.
He quickly launched a competitor network and hired many of Hallmark’s biggest stars, including Bure, actress Danica McKellar and popular leading man Trevor Donovan.
In November, Bure dumped Hallmark to join Great American Family, citing the network’s vision of featuring wholesome family entertainment, including keeping “traditional marriage at the core.”
“I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment,” she told The Wall Street Journal.
“I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.”
