The word "Deism" is derived from the Latin word for God: "Deus."
Deism is not an actual religion but more like ones own particular perspective on the nature of God. Deists believe that a creator god does exist, but that after the universe was created, he retreated, having no more interaction with the the creation or anything in it. It may sound odd but Deism is kind of like a dead beat dad. He was here to make it but, does nothing with it now that its here.' yolasite.com.

Because Deism is not a religion, people tend to follow the religious practices that they grew up with. Some may find that there are none, while others may make up some of their own. It is more based on your own personal feelings about what you believe God wants or would want. Most Deists cant stand organized religion. They tend to see organized religion as a false way to God. Some even view it as a scam.
Famous religious quotes
"My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God."Albert Einstein
“I am for freedom of religion and against all maneuvers to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another.”Thomas Jefferson
Purpose of life
Deism is the step between organized religion and Atheism. It puts down the dogma and rules that religious figures constantly preach but do not practice. Deists have come to the conclusion that God does or did exist and most are more than willing that they could be wrong. They use logic, reason and science to further their search or belief in a God. No religious text is required to be a Deist. Their main purpose of life is basically the same as an Atheist. Live a happy and productive life. Do your best to not hurt people and try to make other peoples lives better.
As far as the History of Deism, it goes back quite a way. Because of the nature of Deism, it is impossible to pin point the exact date but, somewhere around the 17th century, it started to gain prominence. Some of Americas founding fathers were Deists and that is what helped lead to the secular constitution that the United States has. Even though a lot of Americans think that the U.S.A. was built on christian values, they are wrong.
