His life may seem weird from someone’s point of view, but obviously, it’s not ordinary. Having gained a status of a child star at an early age, Kirk Cameron put his career in the entertainment industry aside and left the limelight. Instead of it, he opened his heart to God.

He was born in Panorama City, CA in the family of Robert Cameron and his wife Barbara. Kirk started acting at the age of 9, and his first screen appearances were in the commercials. In the early 1980s, he debuted on the big screen in the movie “Goliath Awaits”. In 1985 the teenager Kirk Cameron felt the first taste of fame. He got the role in the series “Growing Pains”. He skillfully depicted the lady’s man Mike, the member of the Seaver family, which stands in the center of controversy in the TV show. The series gained worldwide popularity, and the young man Cameron immediately understood that being rich, popular and influential is very pleasant. And his decision to change his life after the end of the show sounded too strange for everyone, but not for Kirk himself. He started to think about God after he had crossed the ways with the stranger, who convinced the TV star, that nothing is occasional in this world, and that everything here was created by God.

Now Kirk is famous not just by his TV projects (among which “The Growing Pains Movie”, “Left Behind III: World at War”, “Saving Christmas” etc), but also by his religious and charity work. He is a co-founder of “The Firefly Foundation”.

    I found the short blurps about Kirk’s children offensive, at points. They all have NAMES – “The boy” and “The girl” should’ve been edited out and replaced with the name of the child!

    This article is very poorly written. There are glaring grammatical errors as well as incomplete thoughts and lack of flow throughout.
