One actress is celebrating God and womanhood in honor of International Women's Day—and it's a breath of fresh air after Sunday's political Academy Awards.

On Thursday, Fuller House actress and former View co-host Candace Cameron Bure took to Instagram to share her thoughts on International Women's Day. While posting a photo of herself with her now 19-year-old daughter, Natasha, she described in the caption what it means to be a woman.

Her post, she said, was inspired by a girlfriend who asked her how she would define "being a woman." Among other things, she pointed to femininity and God.

"It means embracing my natural God given qualities and characteristics as a woman," she wrote. "Embracing my femininity, my love of beauty, feeling beautiful, my nurturing qualities and desire to protect and take care of others."

And a woman's strength, she added, goes hand in hand with a reliance on God.

"It's about being strong mentally and emotionally, but dependent on God, and an example to those around me, like my daughter and yours," she stressed. "At times it means being meek—having strength that is under control- not to be confused with weakness."

For her part, she concluded that she "love[s] being a woman and everything that goes along with it," and urged women to support one another.

"Cheers to all the incredible woman who have come before me and have influenced me to be the woman I am today," she said. "I pray I do the same, for the one in the photo and for all those I may impact in some small way."

When it comes to faith, Cameron Bure has never been shy about talking God.

As an evangelical Christian, Cameron Bure has been labeled "controversial" by media in the past. During her time at The View, from 2015 to 2016, she garnered recognition as a conservative, pro-life voice. After leaving, she revealed that she "prayed a lot" to survive the show. When she won favorite comedy TV actress for her role in Fuller House at the Teen Choice Awards last year, Cameron Bure advised teens to "dream big, but pray harder."

 

My girlfriend asked me what being a woman means to me and here's what came to mind. It means embracing my natural God given qualities and characteristics as a woman. Embracing my femininity, my love of beauty, feeling beautiful, my nurturing qualities and desire to protect and take care of others. It's about being strong mentally and emotionally, but dependent on God, and an example to those around me, like my daughter and yours. At times it means being meek- having strength that is under control- not to be confused with weakness. I love being a woman and everything that goes along with it. Happy International Woman's Day! Cheers to all the incredible woman who have come before me and have influenced me to be the woman I am today. I pray I do the same, for the one in the photo and for all those I may impact in some small way. #internationalwomensday credit: @melissacoulier
