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.

  • 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?
