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.

  • Life’s Challenges/Thanks

    I recently heard an interview you did a few years ago about the panic attacks you had and how you dealt with them. I have loved you and your familys music and comedy for years since i was young. I am 7 years younger than you and have been listening to you for over 30 +years. ( no insult intended and apologize if you take it as that..)  but I cried for Marie when I read abt her sons passing and over the loss of your parents. I think its great that you hv family to lean on in times of depression. I hv no family left and basically deal with hard times on my own. Anyway i have panic attacks all the time over different events and choices of people i have allowed in my life. I just wanted to say thank you for not giving up entertaining and for being the fantastic man my cousin says you are. I dont know if you remember Squire Rushnell but he was vice president of ABC alot of years back and not exactly sure what studio or what he did in california after leaving ABC. Anyway thank you for showing alot of us that you can pull yourself up from the hard times when it seems like you cant breathe. Both you and Marie are an inspiration… Thank you again. God Bless you, Debbie and your respected family.

  • 1 step forward 3 steps back.

    I guess I’m just looking for something to move us forward, an outside perspective on the struggles we face.

  • I’m not sure if I should serve a mission?

    I know I should go because the General Authorities expect all able young men to serve missions and my patriartichal blessing states that “the time will come when you will be called to be a missionary…” but I really don’t have a strong desire to go because of how hard it’s going to be for me mentally and emotionally(I’m very shy and self-conscious). And every time I try to make the decision to do something else other than a mission like college, it doesn’t feel right and I get stuck and don’t know what to do.
    I’ve prayed and prayed about this, and haven’t received any answer from God (which adds to my anxiety). I’m just afraid that I’m going to forfeit future blessings in this life and in the next by choosing not to go. I have no idea what to do?
