"As Long As We Got Each Other......"

Way back in the day, there was this little TV show called Growing Pains.





It followed the Seaver family.........

 


The main figure, the oldest son, the one whose exploits kept people watching was a boy named Mike. Mike Seaver and his portrayer Kirk Cameron graced the walls of teenage girls' bedrooms for years. He was cute, he was charming, he was everything we are and aren't supposed to want.




As Mike Seaver (and Kirk Cameron) began to mature (marginally), they decided to bring on a new good-bad boy...................

Hello Leo.



The Seavers have long moved onto other things. Kirk Cameron and his wife Chelsea Noble have moved their careers into Christian films. Ever since the movie Fireproof, Kirk and musician Warren Barfield have been travelling the country doing marriage seminars, Love Worth Fighting For. The seminars are promoted by a group called Feed Your Faith.

In October, my church was one of the establishments blessed enough to be a stop on the tour. For months, the buzz and excitement that Kirk Cameron would be at our church. ME, single me, was contemplating going to the MARRIAGE seminar just to see him.

Then, it was announced that he'd be talking on Sunday (after the Saturday seminars), so there was no need for me to be the lame single person at a marriage conference.

However, I was one of the lame people who brought a camera to Sunday church so I could sneak pictures during his talk.



His story was really great and I enjoyed listening to him speak! I was a HUGE Full House and wanted to be DJ Tanner/Candace Cameron when I was little, so I already knew a lot the backstory. It was really interesting to hear it from him, though.

Afterward, he signed autographs. Apparently, he has a policy of not taking pictures by himself with a woman that is not his wife. So, I settled for taking a picture with the gorgeous Lydia, lol...............





Austin with Kirk........

That's awesome but a little extreme of a picture policy but to each their own, I understand the logic of it.

Religious views aside, that's a super weird rule to have. I mean, it's a picture, it's not going to steal your soul. I'm generally uncomfortable when people make up "rules" like this for themselves. It's like...it's all rooted in principle, but the principle itself isn't really logical.

Lighten up, Mike Seaver!

I LOVED GROWING PAINS! It was my all time favorite, and when they replayed it on the Disney Channel, I'll admit it, I watched it then, toO!

Awesome that you got to meet him! Bummer about his policy though.

In Kirk's defense...if you saw some of the ways that pictures of him and one other person have been changed by photoshop, you would understand his policy. He has no problem with being in a picture with another female, as long is there is another male in the picture as well.

This is also a decision he has made to be honoring to his wife while he is out of town. After working with him for well over a year and seeing his heart, I think this is a wonderful, wife-honoring, policy that he has.

Just my two cents...
