"Fuller House" star Candace Cameron Bure has credited Jesus for the success of her marriage, which is now moving towards its 22nd anniversary. 

Bure has been happily married to her husband, Valeri Bure, for 21 years now, and they have expanded their joy to their kids Natasha, 19, Lev, 18, and Maksim, 16. For Bure, the secret to their happy union can be credited to God.

"The reality is the glue for us is Jesus," she told PEOPLE. "It's the Bible. You know, when there are arguments or we're compromising and in ways, it's always like, 'Well, let's just go back to the Bible.' It's the foundation for us. So it's not about winning or losing. But doing this journey together."

Even though work keeps her busy, Bure says it's important for her to spend quality time with her husband. Just recently, they enjoyed a vacation in Switzerland. "We had a little five-day vacation, so that was wonderful. We do like to travel and get away from everything here at home in L.A., and from our kids, as much as we love them. We want alone time, you know what I mean? And our kids are older too," she said.

Bure also prioritizes the time she spends with her children. The actress said she constantly engages in conversation with them, and they talk about topics that range from being "really kind of intense" to "fluffy."

Whatever the topic, Bure lets her kids know and feel that she is always going to be there for them no matter what.

"As a mom, I'm always going to have an opinion, but not in a judgmental way, if that makes sense," she explained. "I'm going to give my best advice as a mother, or my husband as a father. But we want to be open enough that they don't feel scared to be able to talk to us."
