In looking for an article, I stumbled across this video:

http://www.ldsliving.com/Watch-Donny-Osmond-Posts-Awesome-Throwback-Video-of-Him-Dancing-in-a-Jumpsuit-with-His-Brothers/s/85525

I watched in wonder at the energy, the brothers Osmond, and their outfits—Outasight!

Thank you Donny for posting this recently.

Thank you for sharing a simpler time.

Thank you for wearing a jumpsuit to show that even if people thought we Mormons were still Pioneers and we couldn’t dance, you showed them that we were allowed to dance AND sing AND wear jumpsuits.

Thank you for wearing different colored sashes and chokers.

Thank you for showing that having a lot of children is a good time, and if you are dedicated and practice a lot, you can become a nationally known singing group and be on Billboard’s  Hot 100 chart. Donny himself said,  “Yo-Yo” hit #3 and “Down by the Lazy River” hit #4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 that year, and the album itself was number 10! ”

Show this video to  your children and tell them about how the Osmonds had such an amazing influence on so many people.  Ask them what they can do to be an influence for good in the world.”Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
