Guest Interview: Dana DiGirolamo

I'm excited to feature another contributing author for A Circle of Sisters this week. Dana DiGirolamo contributed two stories about her experiences serving in a Relief Society calling in a prison. A quote from one of her stories is featured on the back cover of the book. Here are her responses to my questions.

What are your likes, interests and hobbies?
I love to read, sing, play piano, and crochet. I like to write, and I love to teach.  But most importantly, I love to spend time with my grandchildren and family!

What is the most unusual thing you’ve ever done?
The most unusual thing I have ever done was marry my sweetheart after only physically seeing him for ten days, even though we spoke on the phone for hours for seven months!

If you could go on a dream vacation, were would you go?
My dream vacation would be to go to FIGI.  Awwh. So beautiful!!

It is very apparent how important your family is to you. What are some of your favorite things to do with them?
I love my family very much. Some of my favorite things to do with them are reading scriptures, going in our RV, movies and BBQ'S!!

One thing I always remember about you is your love of music. What are some of your favorite songs? Why?
I do love music.  Some of my favorite songs include the hymns, especially "A Poor Wayfaring Man Of Grief" and "As I Have Loved You".  I love Broadway songs, especially from Les Miserables, and Phantom Of The Opera.  I LOVE Frank Sinatra - old style music!  I live country music.  I enjoy some pop music.  I think most genres of music are good.  But in this day and age you have up be very careful because the music can be so bad.  I like to think I sang with Heavenly Choirs.  : )
