Actress and TV host Candace Cameron Bure honored her 20-years of marriage to former NHL player Valeri Bure with an honest social media post about their highs and lows and the grace they received to persevere.

"Let's be real for a second. We are celebrating 20 years of marriage today. 22 years together as a couple. I couldn't be more proud to be here and love my man the way I do. But let me assure you it hasn't been all roses the whole journey," Bure wrote. "There have been several tough years, in a row, ups and downs, bad attitudes and bad decisions, but we've persevered. We rode them out. We loved each other through them." more >>

There's nothing more valuable than the presence of God in our lives. And my goal for teaching about God's presence and anointing is to increase your desire to completely and promptly obey God. Because the more we love, trust and obey God, the stronger His anointing will be in our lives.
Now God's love for you is perfect, complete, and unconditional. He couldn't love you any more than He does right now and His love for you never changes. But we can grow in our love for God. As we learn more about His character and have experience with Him through a personal relationship with Him, our trust in Him and love for Him grows. And this causes more of the anointing of the Holy Spirit to work in and through us.

Each contestant must make it down Homefree Blvd., building one by one an entire neighborhood for their heroes, with the grand prize resulting in a dream home.
