Hi I'm S. Ashcraft
Author of 15 cookbooks, including a New York Times Best Seller. I'm a Mormon.
I am married and have 4 children ages 3 to 12. They are my full time job. My hobby gone out of control is cooking. I'm always creating new recipes. I best known for my cookbook, 101 Things To Do With A Cake Mix. I'm working on my 16th cookbook at present. I love scrapbooking and lately have really enjoyed creating digital scrapbooks. I'm the avid bargain shopper and love to blog about all the great deals that I find. Twice a month I film money saving new stories for a local television station. I love my community and serve as the secretary of the Police Citizens Advisory Commission over our local police department.
Why I am a Mormon
Missionaries knocked on my parents door shortly after they were married. My dad had told my mom that he felt there was a true church, but that he hadn't been able to find it. My mom thought she could convert him to her religion. When the missionaries came and shared the gospel with my parents, my dad felt in his heart that this was the church that he had been searching for. My mom thought she had married a nut. She started to read the Book of Mormon to prove that it was wrong, but as she read she knew it was true. They were baptized and I was born one year later. I will be forever grateful to my parents for recognizing the truth when it was presented to them. I love Jesus Christ. I love the Bible, the spiritual record of the people in the old world. I love the Book of Mormon, the spiritual record of the people in the Americas. They both bear such powerful witness that the Savior lives, that he loves us, and that he has provided a way for us to return to live with him someday.
How I live my faith
I am blessed to work with the missionaries of our church. I teach the Sunday School class for new members and for those who are just learning about our faith. I love that I am able to share my feelings about the Savior and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on a weekly basis. I love the Savior and try daily to follow his teachings. As I have done so, I have always been miraculously blessed.
