My Beliefs

ARE WE RELATED?
Donny Osmond

“As I’ve traveled all over the world, the fact that I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has caused a lot of interesting questions. I’ve received so many letters and e-mails asking things like, What are the basic beliefs of Latter-day Saints?”

My Testimony

Listen

…Some want to know how Debbie and I have been able to maintain a strong marriage — over all these years — while living in the world of show business. Others want to know how we dealt with the challenges of raising a close and happy family in such difficult times.

How do we maintain a balance between work, and family life? Well, you know it’s not always easy, but the following pages are my attempt to explain a way of life that helps answer these kinds of questions. It gives me stability in a world, and in a business, that can be uncertain, compromising, and stressful. It’s the pattern that gives me direction in my life. And, I hope that this information will help answer some of your questions.

Questions & Answers

  • Thank you and my testimony

    Donny. :  I just want to commend you for your wonderful site defending LDS beliefs.  I was actually an investigator for 16 months.  I actually just stopped by randomly at the St George visitor center on my way to Zion NP ( we we’re staying in Vegas and took a day trip.   I wanted to go see that  cool white building.  Well I found we couldn’t go in but met a nice Australian missionary who took questions.  I laid them all out from Book of Mormon archeology to polygamy.  She didn’t argue just shared her faith.  I left that place spinning due to the amazing sweet spirit.

    I found myself in March in Nauvoo on my way back from a trip to Minnesota.  Again met some elder missionaries and the spirit was brimming.  I was no where near converting but I couldn’t quit studying. Been to Nauvoo seven times sense

    Well I met so many wonderful people and a year later joined on March 5th.  I am a passionate defender.  I have done fire sides and now am gospel principle teacher.  Love the church. Your website was a Huge help along the way.  I thank you so much.   I was sitting with my Book of Mormon and an evangelical lady sat in my booth at a donut shop and asked how I could believe that church.  I told her I believed like her but the laid out the pre mortal life and then Why we have temples to help redeem all of Gods children’s through Christ. She was shocked I had answers yet also could pass her quiz on how we are saved.
    It was a great 30 minute chat and respectful (yes she threw out the cult word once).
    Anyway I love to share my testimony and you had a part in it.  Best part of all:

    on APRIL 21 I will be at your show and have VIP tickets.  My name is Tony and can’t wait to meet you.  And it’s my birthday.  my wife is Mary. Huge fans.  She is not a member but she respects my journey although sometimes it’s a bit much.

    Thanks again and God bless you.  You are a true missionary.

    Tony

  • Are Mormons Christian?

    Do Mormon’s believe that it is by works that you are saved? Why did the Mormons turn away from the Christian Bible ?

  • Finding God

    I have never been very religious in my youth. But as I grow older (35), I’m trying to find myself and God. My husband is an atheist and thinks that religion is full of nonsense. How can I have a personal relationship with God?

  • WOW

    I know many Mormons that drink all kinds of sodas and the high caffeine energy drinks.  Are these a part of the Word of Wisdom? Also as I read the Word of Wisdom you shared, it seems to me that overeating/indulging would also be against the Word of Wisdom.  I have seen an awful lot of overweight Mormons in my lifetime.

  • Missions

    I wonder what you will do if I will visit your home and try to convert you from your religion to my religion? You probably will stay polite but you will reject my offer, right? Then why do people from your church still continue going on a ‘war’ path trying to convert other people?

    How sure are you that people who do convert are sincere and genuine about it?

  • Did your faith help you heal when you struggled with anxiety?

    I’ve had an anxiety disorder since my early teens, but this year due to a combination of factors, I became more seriously ill than ever before.

    When you were really suffering, what tricks did you employ to help you manage certain tasks? And did prayer and reflection come in to play a lot for you during these times? Was it your faith that helped keep you afloat through the harder times? Did the bad days ever cause you to question your faith? Do you consider those days a test for you? Or did you feel, that no matter how hard things were, God was always present to comfort you and keep your strength up?

  • Question from your website

    Are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints allowed to remarry upon death of a believing spouse? If so, would a man or woman have two spouses in the Kingdom of God? Would the second marriage also be deemed an ‘eternal marriage’?
