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?”

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.

  • Mission

    Dear Donny,
    I used to feel so sad that you did not get the opportunity to go on a Mission. I see now that Heavenly Father saw the whole picture. He knew that you would be Valiant in your testimony and have many ways to share the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. May Our Father bless you for your courage to stand for truth.

    Dear Sister,
    Thank you very much for your wonderful remarks. I have often felt disappointed that I was not able to serve a full-time mission as my sons have. However, I am very grateful to know I have the opportunity to share my testimony and knowledge of the true gospel of Jesus Christ with the world by other means.
    Maybe someday my wife and I can serve a full-time mission.
    Thanks again,
    Donny Osmond
