The purpose of the Osmond family is to lighten the load of
others by bringing music that carries with it a message of hope—

that life can be enjoyed and lived with an abundance of love.

That is our message. That is our dream.

My mission is to be a part of this family, whose ministry is

to help bring souls to Christ. That’s what it is all about, no matter

what stage of life we are in. We are all children of God and He loves

us the same, no matter what we’ve done or what our station in life

is. He always has His arms open to us.

Helping others to find the Gospel is what brings me joy and

happiness. Even if we bring one soul to Christ, our mission will be

complete.

Every stage of my life has helped me to build faith in Jesus

Christ and in His Gospel.

-Jay Osmond
