Finding Faith: ‘Wonder Years’ Star Danica McKellar’s Journey to Embracing Christianity

The former “Wonder Years” star Danica McKellar recently credited her close friend Candace Cameron Bure for helping her find God. “I’ve been around Christianity my whole life in some way, shape, or form, but it never really clicked,” McKellar, 48, told Fox News. “And my good friend Candace Cameron Bure… she brought me to church. And all I can say is that something happened.” “All I know is… I was flooded with this love and understanding,” she continued.

McKellar went on to say that after Cameron Bure took her to church to see a “passion play,” she felt “suddenly understood.” “Everything I always thought about there being some higher power and wanting to do the right thing, just because it’s the right thing, when no one’s watching, why that matters, and it all just came into focus,” she added.

The “Wonder Years” star concluded by revealing what her favorite part about becoming a Christian is. “You don’t feel alone anymore in your moments where you are by yourself, you’re not alone,” she said. “And the fact that that’s available to everybody at any time… I thought religion was this restrictive thing, it’s actually the most freeing thing in the world.”

Last year, McKellar thanked Cameron Bure directly while appearing on her podcast. “Candace, I don’t wanna brush over the huge, huge impact that you’ve had on my life this year,” McKellar said, according to CBN News. “I don’t even know how to call that like friendship, it’s more than that. Because of you helping me to find my relationship with God and Jesus, it’s been like a revolution in my life. It’s been a revelation in my life.”

McKellar previously opened up about her faith journey in an interview with Fox News back in October, saying, “I would not say I’ve embraced religion so much as a relationship. I’ve found my faith, and it’s been an amazing life changer.”
