WATCH: Candace Cameron Bure Shares ‘Best Parenting Advice,’ Reveals Her Family Motto

When it comes to faith and family, we know we can count on Candace Cameron Bure.

The Fuller House star recently opened up in a virtual interview with TODAY’s Hoda Kotb about the two sayings that have shaped her parenting and led her family over the years.

“Excuses are for losers,” Candace laughs as she explains the “not-so warm and fuzzy” quote that has become her family’s motto over the years.

“My husband has been saying this since I’ve known him,” she said, “so probably 25 years.”

Candace, who is a mother of three, says, it’s the “best parenting advice” she’s ever given her kids because it’s not about being a winner, but instead about building character.

“It’s saying, there’s no excuses, just try. Go for it.”

While “excuses are for losers” may be her family motto, Candace revealed to Hoda the quote that she says is her “everything.”

Quoting Matt Maher’s worship song, “Lord I Need You,” Candace says those four little words are what she leans on constantly.
