2,636 Articles of Strength… So Far!!!
I can’t believe that since I started publishing articles at TheFamily.com, I have posted 2,636 articles of Strength for The Family… so far!
You can do a SEARCH at TheFamily.com and find various words of truth with everything from ‘Daily Inspiration’ to various ways of Strengthening The Family Physically, Mentally, Socially, Spiritually, and Financially!
Why did I do it? Because ever since my Mother and Father taught me and my brothers and sister the love of learning and about the gospel of Jesus Christ, I was taught to always give back, and to “sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”
1 Peter 3:15
With that ‘hope within me’, I wanted to reach out to help others and share those ‘pearls of truths’ and experiences of life which I had learned and know to be true, instead of “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:7
Since I got started learning about the internet business many years ago and was personally taught html programming and publishing by a friend and mentor, Dave Brewer, I purchased several websites of various interest with TheFamily.com being of the most interest as The Family is the basic unit of society which God brings about the work of His children.
I hope you will go to my website and select “SEARCH” with some key words that are of interest to you. I also hope that if you find some truths which I have, that you will seek and find more and obtain the happiness I have from adopting those truths into my own life.
“And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge,
even hidden treasures.” D&C 89:19
‘Pressing’ ever onward For The Family,

My humble prayer…
to all those I’ve come to know…
…with charity that we all may become…
… until we have unity of faith.
“Charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.”
Moroni 7:45; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Utah is where our family was born, where we grew up, moved from, and then came back to!
When we were young and sang Barbershop harmony as a quartet, we moved to California to be on a weekly television show called The Andy Williams Show. We spent 7 years doing that and then got into the record business and writing songs that appealed to our own peers.
After having much success and in making many friends worldwide, we started doing television again with The Donny and Marie Show and all the family got involved in the production of it. We missed not being in Utah and so my family asked me to meet with the President of ABC Television, Fred Silverman, and ask him to allow us to move the TV Series to Utah! Mr. Silverman said, “What’s in Utah?” “Is there a TV Studio there?” I said, “No, but there will be!” We showed him our production plans for the construction and finally he approved us to move it to Utah during the mid-season that following year. We knew it was ambitious but we felt inspired to follow our promptings so we pushed all the “go buttons” to build The Osmond Studios, a state of the art Television and Production Studio in Orem, Utah!
We Osmonds loved music and we traveled around the world many times singing it but when we finished our tours, we also loved to go back home and be with all of our families!
We sang a song called, “Hello Utah” that reminded everyone of a most wonderful place to live. We wanted all of our friends and neighbors to know how much we enjoyed growing up in Utah, going to school, making friends, marring their daughters and son, and for all of our grandkids to do the same!
It was 1981 and we all now had families while performing and we were missing them and our wives, so we decided to stop touring for a while and went back home to Utah! I love staying busy so that’s when I started a live stadium event called, “Stadium of Fire”! I loved fireworks and as Executive Producer of The Donny & Marie TV Series and other Osmond productions, I soon learned that it wasn’t “television”…. but tele-VISION!!!!! People loved to SEEEEEEEEE something fun and exciting. Fireworks was my thing! I loved lighting up the sky to music and even set a Guinnes Book of Records for lighting a MILLION firecrackers in 6 seconds!
We are now into our 36th year of this sold out celebrity fireworks spectacular with a focus on God, Family, Freedom, and Country!
We all moved to Branson, Missouri where we had The Osmond Family Theater where we worked for 10 years. We were in one place and the audiences traveled to see us instead of us to them! It worked out great.
Times have changed. We are now living in day of unsure times when there is much wickedness and turbulence in the world. The future seems so corrupt and most unsure. But, with faith and hope, trusting in the Lord and by being wise, we can plan for those great days and tomorrows ahead! We have something that we know will help.
I am older and hopefully a little wiser. Suzanne and I are now involved in another global project that is blessing families and businesses all around the world. It also helps feed a million hungry children every year, right here in the U.S.A.!
I would like to invite all of our friends, neighbors, and business associates to come and visit with Suzanne and me at our offices in Orem, Utah. Or, contact me below, so that we can arrange to show you what we are doing!

Pray About It!
Earth life, though brief, is crucial to us in our quest for eternal life.
Here we receive bodies of flesh and bones and are tested in all things.
Those who learn obedience and gain self-mastery will return to live
with God the Eternal Father.
“All of us are but a few years removed from the Eternal Presence,
from him whose children we are and in whose house we dwelt.
All of us are separated by a thin veil only from the friends and
fellow laborers with whom we served on the Lord’s errand
before our eternal spirits took up their abodes in tabernacles of clay”
Bruce R. McConkie
“In my Father’s house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.”

There Is Life After Death

There Is Life After Death
Death is not the end. Death is really a beginning—another step forward in Heavenly Father’s plan for His children. Someday, like everyone else, your physical body will die. But your spirit does not die, it goes to the spirit world, where you will continue to learn and progress and may be with loved ones who have passed on.
Death is a necessary step in your progression, just as your birth was. Sometime after your death, your spirit and your body will be reunited—never to be separated again. This is called resurrection, and it was made possible by the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:20-22
In the spirit world our spirits will have the same form as when we lived on the earth with bodies of flesh and bones. We will look as we do here. We will think the same way and believe the same things as we did here. Those who are righteous in this life will still be righteous. Those who were unrighteous will still be unrighteous. We will have the same desires after we die as we had while on this earth.
God is the Father of our spirits. We are created in His image. We have a divine nature and destiny.
Before we were born, we lived with God, the Father of our spirits. All persons on earth are literally brothers and sisters in the family of God.
Our life on earth has purpose. Coming to earth is part of God’s plan for us to gain a physical body and learn to choose between good and evil.
Our Heavenly Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Savior and show us the way to live according to God’s plan.
Following God’s plan for us is the surest way to find happiness and endure life’s challenges.
Our lives will not end when we die. Our future lives are determined by the way we live our lives now.
I have been thinking about this today and wrote this poem for my wife, Suzanne Osmond.
“When I move
On . . . . with my
work and glory . . .don’t be
Long . . . just finish
up your story . . . cause I’ll be
Waiting for You . . . .
Praying for You . . . my
Love . . . . .
. . . . . . Life goes
On . . . . we will
live forever . . . where we be-
long . . . . we’ll build a
World together . . . . . . . faithfully
Waiting for you . . . . Making our
dreams come true . . . my
Love . . . . . .”
Alan Osmond © 2014
“For the law was after a carnal commandment,
to the administration of death;
but the gospel was after the power of an endless life,
through Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son,
who is in the bosom of the Father.”

Working Smarter NOT Harder
‘With my older age and MS, I have to!’
I enjoy working and have ever since I was a young boy living in Ogden, Utah. My father made sure of it as he tried to raise his eight (8) sons and one (1) daughter by teaching us the values like learning to work, and enjoying it, too!
I grew up on a farm where I milked a cow every morning and night, and helped raise sheep, cows, horses, chickens and rabbits besides planting and harvesting a large garden and orchard which
included irrigating, bailing and hauling hay, hoeing sugar beets, churning butter, canning, and helping my parents at their Post Office when it got busy. Besides going to school and carrying a bass violin, with the help of a brother, back and forth from school daily a half a mile away. I was also the leader of a music quartet that loved to sing. That too, took much practice and rehearsal time besides learning to read music and doing performances at every opportunity that came along in support of church, charities, and gaining experience.
I engaged in higher learning with the encouragement and example of a loving Mother that came from a family of school teachers. She taught us grammar and English, especially our two deaf brothers, in our private school room which my father built in the attic of our home. It was there that we learned to apply our slogan, “We Seek Higher Things”. Higher learning, higher values, higher success. We had extra tutoring by our parents and others in geography and science, history, scripture study, learning skills like speed typing, doing shorthand, and even taking courses in becoming a stenographer. It took a lot of work and it was hard, but it was worth it.
“We seek higher things.”
As my beautiful wife Suzanne and I try to teach our eight sons and twenty-four grandchildren, we try to “organize ourselves, prepare every needful thing”, and to work smarter, not harder!
With the progression of my health challenge of M.S., which “I may have M.S., but it does not have me”, I decided to step off the stage as a life long entertainer, producer, director, script and song writer, speaker, and businessman, and after much prayer in humbly seeking answers as to what I could do to be productive and provide for my family, Suzanne and I were lead to a way to not only help others and their businesses by lowering their monthly costs, but to bless our own lives financially! This was an answer to our prayers and those with whom we associate.
The company is called ACN, and here is why this business works!
We work from home, spend time together with family instead of being away from those we love. We aren’t building someone else’s dream, we build our own! We build our own future focusing on “options” and NOT the “money”! Yet, as we help others, we also help ourselves! You don’t have to be blessed with great speaking skills or be outgoing and talkative. You just need to follow the proven steps of this 21 year old franchise that is the largest direct marketing company in the world and currently located in 24 countries. WE JUST OPENED UP MEXICO – THE GATEWAY TO ALL OF CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA! We just follow the proven system with training and team effort that never leaves you without help. Yes, “If you don’t work, ACN doesn’t work!” But, if you do, it won’t fail you!
HAVE A BUYING EXPERIENCE!
We help you buy wisely those services you are paying for every month, but with lower costs. We offer the biggest brand named services in the world’s three multi-trillion dollar industries of Telecommunication, Banking, and Energy! Warren Buffet said, “The biggest transformation of wealth will be the deregulation of energy”. Well, it is happening! We currently offer energy in 18 states with more coming soon!

With FAITH We Can SAVE AMERICA!
Have you asked yourself, “What has our wonderful country become?”
“Don’t our politicians listen to us any more?”
Our President is bypassing Congress and our Constitutional laws at his own will and won’t miss
a game of golf to go visit the borders to see what a mess we are in with illegal immigrants.
Deals are being cut and secret agendas seem to be the order of business today!
The IRS is on our backs and they go unchecked and unchallenged.
Small businesses are being closed with the big ones getting tax breaks while importing from China!
Major Job losses and a financial meltdown are continuing as our military keeps getting reduced in size while spending millions to help our enemies.
Americans are also dying each day for lack of honest health care and insurance because of greed.
AND THE LIST GOES ON!
With Apostle Paul, I say to all of you:
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.
Yes, where there is much good, much opposition will always stick up it’s ugly head!
BUT, WITH FAITH AND PRAYERS, AND RAISING THE VOICE OF WE THE PEOPLE, THERE IS HOPE!
Just as Moses said unto the people, “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. . . . The Lord shall fight for you.”
But, we must do our part also in calling upon our God and trusting in Him; In “all our ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct our paths”! Proverbs 3:5-6
For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. [Hebrews 10:35-36]
I acknowledge the reality of opposition and adversity, but I bear witness of the God of Glory, of the redeeming Son of God, of light and hope and a bright future. I promise you that God lives and loves you, each one of you, and that he has set bounds and limits to the opposing powers of darkness.
For The Family
