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

  • Osmond church history

    It got me thinking about which ancestors in your family lines were the ones to join the church.  Can you share who they were, and maybe some stories about their conversions or early lives in the church?

  • Baptism for the Dead? Biblical?

    I wonder how the church basis it’s baptism for those who have passed away as biblical… Once the person has died, they proceed to judgment or heavens gates to see if their name is in the book of life. Baptizing them after death, in my eye’s, doesn’t really serve any purpose.

  • Genealogy Vs. Genealogies

    Why does your church promote it so actively when it clearly states in the Holy Bible, 1 Timothy 1:4 “Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith”.

    My daughter is a birth child, and our son is adopted. I wondered how our adopted son would feel about researching blood family history.
