Bure has stepped back into her role as D.J. in Netflix’s top-rated original series “Fuller House.” The much buzzed about series follows Bure (D.J.) as a widow and mother of three and when things become too much to handle, she calls in the help of her sister ‘Stephanie’ (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).

Bure’s third book, “Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction”, which chronicles her journey of self-discovery on season 18 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” that came by leaping out of her comfort zone. The book includes the highs and lows, the roadblocks, and the personal victories that she experienced while competing.
