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

  • 25 years

    I noticed reading numerous sources and diaries that Brigham Young taught Adam was God? This went on for 25 years at the pulpit to the people and can’t be discarded as opinion. A true prophet (God’s mouthpiece) could not err?

  • Leadership

    It seems Thomas Monson has made one or two unpopular decisions. Could it be possible that a leadership challenge may result in such a situation. If the church could see as a result many people leaving because they didnt like the decisions made by the leader. Is it then possible that a change of leadership could take place.

  • Praying for years, but no answer or miracle?

    I keep praying & I know He has a plan for us like He did for you & your family. We’re just waiting patiently for that break & I wrote to you because I knew you could spread some light on the subject of praying and being patient.  I read the Bible & passages  frequently to stay positive, but it is fading with each passing day. I hope to see you & Marie in Vegas for my graduation gift. At the same time it is our 33rd wedding anniversary so I hope our financial status turns around quickly.  For richer or poorer … we keep hoping and trying to better our lives

  • Question

    What did Joseph Smith mean when he said, “If I should reveal the things that God has revealed to me, there are some on this stand that would cut my throat or take my heart’s blood”?
    What did Joseph Smith know that would have got him killed by his brethren? “Brethren, if I were to tell you all I know of the kingdom of God, I do know that you would rise up and kill me.”

    What revelations could the Latter-Day Saints not bear? “If I was to show the Latter Day Saints all the revelations that the Lord has shown unto me, there is scarce a man that would stay with me, they could not bear it.”

    Who was Joseph and what did he know that would have caused his brethren to take his life? ““Would to God, brethren, I could tell you WHO I am! Would to God I could tell you WHAT I know! But you would call it blasphemy and want to take my life!”

  • Do Not Add To, or Take Away From The Bible

    [T]he Bible says that anyone who adds or takes away from the book of revelation shall have their name removed from the book of life and the plagues of the book shall be upon him.Notice how Joseph Smith added to the book of revelation.

    This would make him a false prophet,right?How can Mormons say a man who added to the book of Revelation a prophet of God?

  • How Do Apostles and Prophets Become Such?

    I… find it difficult to understand the fact that you have living Apostles and Prophets. I am particularly interested in learning how they become such, are they born as an apostle or prophet or is it just a position within your Church that anyone can aspire to?
