Reshaping It ALL by Candace Cameron Bure

Yes, yes, you probably recognize the name and possibly the face...but something about her looks different.

Candace Cameron Bure is the famous pre-teen beauty from Full House and is one of Kirk Cameron's sisters.  (He was on Growing Pains, remember?)

What's missing on that beautiful face of hers, though?

Oh, yeah!  The cute, chubby cheeks.

You see, in the years since we last saw her on Full House she has done some growing up.  And I must say, it looks beautiful on her.  However, those years in between the cutesy pre-teen days and now have by no means been easy for her.

In Reshaping It ALL, Candace openly shares the story of her life growing up as an actress, battling an eating disorder, and rediscovering her faith in Jesus Christ as her Savior. 

Candace Cameron Bure candidly (no pun intended) opens up her life and shares lessons learned along the way so that we can glean wisdom and practicality from her struggles and successes.  Candace offers everything from narrative life recounting to thoughtful quotes she finds inspiring.  She presents scripture to go along with each chapter as well as some down-to-earth advice on how to succeed at reshaping your body and soul.  She even includes a favorite recipe with each chapter---several of which I have since made and enjoyed.

Though Candace's problem is/was more in the area of addiction to food, my struggles are not the same.  I do enjoy food, however I am pretty good about not overindulging and such.  My issue is exercise---or lack thereof.  Because I lack the energy, time, motivation, and stamina to begin and maintain a regular exercise program, my body is now showing the fruit of it.  I could not have gotten this book at a better time. 

Thanks to Candace's encouragement, I plan to make this INSPIRATION turn into PERSPIRATION.  

And who knows, maybe that will in turn produce some much needed REJUVENATION!
