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

  • 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!”

  • Just out of curiosity

    First I know mormon president Woodroofe outlawed the practice of polygamy in 1898 in the LDS church. What happens if the church finds out that members of today’s LDS still practice polygamy? Second I saw a documentary on the Bible vs. the Book of Mormon and at the end of it both archeologists and “religious experts” denounced the Book of Mormon as and I quote “19th century religious fiction “. Have you seen this documentary and if so what is your belief on this?

  • Your Beliefs and Nudity

    This family member pointed out your religious beliefs to me, which before I had been unaware of, and then asked, How do these beliefs affect Donny’s willingness to appear partially undressed? They were surprised to see you shirtless in some scenes, as they were under the impression this would be against the beliefs of the Church you belong to. What does your faith say on the matter?
