My Beliefs

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?”

Debby & Donny Osmond

My Testimony


…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

  • 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?

    The LDS people in this ward are very judgmental to us because we don’t go to church every Sunday and hypocrites. They shun my children my wife and me.  I lost my faith and testimony because of these people and what that man did to destroy my life by losing my home and business and causing my marriage to have issues because of the stress.  I am lost now I don’t what to do I read scriptures I pray and it seams nothing helps. Could you please give me some advice thank you.

  • Faith

    I believe in the principles of the gospel, the Book of Mormon, the Pearl of Great Price
    I struggle daily & whilst I have good intentions these don’t always materialise
    I don’t think I am a bad person but how do I get stronger in my faith
    I met you in LV recently having finally got on a plane I wasn’t able to talk coherently as I was so nervous at meeting you
    I read your autobiography and know you have struggled with fear and  irrational reaction to situations
    I know you sought help outside the church – did you look internally before you saw Dr Ross
    I admire your strength & conviction you and Debbie are an inspiration
