Legacy of Light Gala



Story and photography by Eric Lusk

The 2018 Legacy of Light Gala was recently held at Middle Tennessee Christian School. The keynote speaker for the evening was actress, producer, and New York Times’ bestselling author, Candace Cameron Bure. Known worldwide from her role as “D.J. Tanner” on the iconic family sitcom “Full House”, Candace spoke about the challenges of balancing her family, faith and continuing to flourish in the entertainment industry.

The evening began in the beautifully transformed MTCS Miller Gym with a reserved seat dinner provided by Peter D’s Catering. There Mrs. Bure candidly answered questions from students and selected others about her life. Following dinner, the engagement moved to the larger sports facility, where Bure formally spoke about her experiences growing up as a child-star, her role in the reprised “Fuller House”, Hallmark Channel movies, and her soon to be New York Times
best selling book “Kind is the New Classy: the Power of Living Graciously”.

    August is the calendar month when summer begins its slow crawl towards autumn, but not before a few more hot days and thunderstorms. Enjoy the bounty of the season: vine-ripened tomatoes, ripe melon, sweet corn on the cob, and blueberries are just a few of my favorites. Luckily for us, Murfreesboro is blessed with one of the finest Farmer’s Markets in the state where we can do just that! Nothing screams summer better than a homecooked meal of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown and sold. Read More
