Hi I'm Merrill Osmond

I grew up in Ogden, Utah. I'm a Co-Founder of the Osmond Foundation. I'm an entertainer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After 41 years of being married with my wife, I'm a father of six children and I have 12 grandkids. I've entertained throughout the world with my brothers for over 54 years and in the process I've written quite a few hit records. I also worked with my family in creating the Children's Miracle Network My hobbies include watching football and golf. I also love photography and painting. A couple of fun things about me are that I love to collect Mickey Mouse Paraphernalia and I've been knighted twice. Once as Sir Merrill Osmond by the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem and by The Order of Saint Michael of the Wing. I just love to be around people and I hope they like being around me!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm not a Mormon because of my parents. In fact, my parents encouraged me to study all types of religions. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I know that life doesn't end after death and that we can be with our loved ones for eternity. For me, being a Mormon brings so much hope into my life. Especially being in a world with so much chaos and strife. Being a Mormon and knowing the God loves me personally, brings peace, joy and eternal understanding.

How I live my faith

I love to live my faith by making frequent trips to one of our church's temples. I have a church calling to be a home teacher and so I love to visit the families in my home Ward. I also love to share the gospel through the media, whether it be through the television, radio, or live performance. One of my favorite types of music is church hymns. My favorite song to sing is the Children's hymn, "I'm a Child of God." I love to read the scriptures and to bare my testimony by word and by song. I love to travel throughout the world with my brothers; doing firesides and speaking out on gospel principles. One of the reasons why I love to perform is so that I can invite those who are looking for joy and peace in their lives to learn more about Christ.
