Candace Cameron Bure could be called a triple threat — a dancer, actress and author — but it's another member of the family who might soon be featured on network TV showcasing her talents.
According to Us Weekly, Bure's daughter, Natasha, will be using her gift as a singer to audition for the next season of "The Voice."
The proud mom regularly posts videos of her only daughter singing worship songs in church, but now the 17 year old is reportedly hitting "The Voice" stage to audition for season 11.

NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez says he's excited to have another chance at his professional football career with his trade to the Denver Broncos.
"This is like a gift-wrapped opportunity from Heaven," Sanchez told NFL Media Columnist Michael Silver last week.
"As soon as it arrived, I told myself, 'Take advantage of things. Assert yourself. Be the guy you know you can be. Win the job. And then go win some games, which is the most important thing of all.'" more >>
When the verdict was handed down on Nov. 24, 2014, exonerating the officer that killed Michael Brown, civil unrest erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, and many African-Americans were understandably distraught, but Lance McCarthy saw opportunity.
Right from the start, after rioters looted many minority-owned small businesses in town, McCarthy was on the scene with solutions. He and a friend who is in the plastics business were able to install clear, unbreakable, plastic windows — as opposed to plywood — in several shops to communicate to the city that they were indeed still open.
Such an act reflects not only who this man is but is itself a sort of metaphor for his life. His decades of economic and policy research have installed many proverbial windows for many to now see how God is redeeming a troubled city. McCarthy's insights into systemic poverty and its root causes have propelled him to do what he calls "the consummation of his life's work." more >>
Your love, support and encouragement can mean more than you'll ever know.
Often, the people you are striving to help are in the midst of what appears to be a "no win" situation. Ann was struggling with this kind of problem. From a psychological standpoint, Ann was very fragile. Not only had she been rejected by her in-laws, she was also experiencing the anxiety of her husband's job loss. Problem after problem inundated her life, each compounding her difficulties and adding to her stress. Ann knew what it meant to feel the heaviness of personal problems.
What happens when a person's life suddenly becomes derailed? Re-evaluation takes place in an attempt to make sense out of the senseless. The struggle begins as one attempts to find meaning from the despair, frustration and inequities of life. more >>
When Chicken Little said the sky is falling, we all laughed. Well, maybe it's time we stopped laughing.
It seems Chicken Little may be on to something.
My friend Rod Dreher is as sane and stable as anyone I know, and he's saying, in essence, that the sky is falling. I reference his new article in The American Conservative, called "The Coming Christian Collapse." more >>
The Rev. Billy Graham gives an awe-inspiring answer to a 6-year-old boy's question: "Where did God come from?"
In response to the question posed by the son of a reader of Graham's syndicated column published in the Kansas City Star, the world renowned evangelist said: "God has always existed, and He always will, because He had no beginning and He will have no end."
While it might be possible to comprehend that God is eternal, the fact that He has always existed and has no beginning can be a mind-bending concept for many Christians, even adults. Graham understands this. more >>
