Format: Hardcover
Imagine a young woman graduating high school, almost immediately marrying a man seven years her senior, raising four children while her marriage is falling apart, then fighting to restore her family while guiding two of her children to successful, famous careers and eventually starting her own business. Sound like something from Hollywood? Well, it is. And it's Barbara Cameron's life story. Two of Barbara's children became stars on long-running television shows - Candace played DJ Tanner on Full House and Kirk was Michael Seaver on Growing Pains. In Full House of Growing Pains, Barbara recounts the behind-the-scenes pressures of getting her children to auditions and rehearsals, dealing with the stage mothers and casting personnel, and a variety of other challenges. Meanwhile, her husband, Robert, was dealing with the other two children at home. Throw into the mix Barbara's feelings of faded love for Robert that eventually leads to her leaving him and getting her own apartment.

Barbara's father was strict, and he made sure his children went to church to learn about God. Throughout the book, Barbara's path of spiritual awakening comes through in the way she handles each situation she faces. After Kirk commits his life to Christ, Barbara becomes even more focused on strengthening her own relationship with God.

Full House of Growing Pains shows how a mother was able to raise her children to be strong Christians in spite of Hollywood's environment and her own personal struggles. The stories are interesting and the book, sprinkled with family photos, flows at a comfortable pace with a solid presentation of the Gospel at the end as Barbara wraps up her story. Barbara also shares her current passion of working with Children's Hunger Fund, bringing hope to needy children in Africa.

Format: Hardcover
This wonderful book by Barbara Cameron explains the comings and goings, trials, tribulations, success's and heartbreaks of a Hollywood family. It's refreshingly honest with no spin at all. Mrs. Cameron had her shares of ups and downs in her personal life, all the while being a supportive mother who kept her "star" children in line and the "non-star" children were really the stars at home.

My heart went out to poor Bridgett who is the real star of the family!! But their amazing transformation into Born Again, on fire for Jesus Chrsit and their passion that none should miss out on Heaven is so honest, and pure, and indeed rare in a Hollywood where it's hip to be anti-Christian, anti-morals, and whatever goes is OK. Praise God for this family and I know that He is indeed Blessing us with this most excellent book. Thank you Ray Comfort for inspiring Mrs. Cameron. Thank You Mrs. Cameron for sharing your life with us, and thank you Jesus for loving and dying for all of us so that we may be saved!

I really liked this book by Barbara Cameron. She was very honest about the ups and downs of show business, motherhood and marriage. I'd also recommend her son Kirk Cameron's book "Still Growing: An Autobiography" which is also an honest and funny read!

Format: Hardcover
I just read an online interview in which Kirk Cameron says he grew up in a NONRELIGIOUS family and his parents let him decide his own religious path when he got older. I've also read and heard in a few interviews that Candace admitted that God wasn't a big influence on her growing up and she didn't think deeply about God or religion as a kid. It was only later on when she was an adult that Kirk opened her eyes up to the Christian faith. So based on these facts, I don't buy that Barbara Cameron so strongly instilled religion in her kids. Of course she was a great parent and raised her kids with good morals and to be grounded, but it doesn't sound like religion was truly a priority in her parenting as she claims in the book--that seems like an exageration.

Format: Hardcover
This book was nothing like the positive reviews portray it. Oh, there are a couple of decent chapters at the end where the author talks about her faith and helping others, but three-fourths of the book is about an uneducated stage mom who thinks she's just about perfect and does nothing but complain about her husband and fantasize about having an affair. It's shocking how wrong this book is in terms of direction. Instead of an inspirational story of a woman who had some failures in her marriage but turned her life around, it's a woman who claims to be just about a saint who blames all of her problems on her husband. Yet there is zero evidence that the guy is bad and all the signs point to her being the problem in the marriage, including multiple chapters about her desires to sleep with another man (what are those doing in a "Christian" book???).

Three different times in the book she says she committed her life to Christ. How many more times will she need? First she says she's a Christian in the early years and offers many prayers that Kirk or Candace get parts in commercials or shows. Then after she falls for a guy on the Full House set and leaves her husband, she has another born again experience as she follows the rest of the family to church. Then there's a third time where she "really" gets the gospel when a minister Kirk works with delivers a fire and brimstone message about being a terrible sinner.

Namely, this woman is confused and messed up. It's very disappointing because her kids appear to have turned out great (of course, who knows what really goes on behind the scenes). She had a great husband and decent kids--yet she appears to only want to praise herself and demean those around her.
