Marie Osmond Discusses Her Christian Faith
“You have a right to hate everyone on the planet for what they have done to you,” Osmond told Closer Weekly. “But faith teaches you to forgive and not let the past ruin your future. You move forward and find great joy in that.”
Osmond grew up the eighth of nine children, and as the only girl, in a Mormon family. From the time she was a small child, her mother instilled in her the importance of a positive attitude.
“My mom preached positive attitude until I was like, ‘Mom, stop!’” she said as she laughed. “Thank God she did. You have to have hope, and that’s what faith does. Having faith is having a positive attitude.”
One of the most difficult moments in Osmond’s life came in 2005, when her house burned to the ground.

These days, Osmond is as busy as ever, and she even has a new symphonic album coming out.
“All of the hard work that I have put in, you wouldn’t know that it was ‘Paper Roses’ singing those songs,” Osmond said of how her voice has matured sing her 1973 hit song. “I’ve learned how to sing multiple genres.”
She’s also enjoying spending time with her husband and “best friend” Stephen, 63.
“We’ve raised all the kids, just dropped the last two off at college,” she said.
