Stepping Into the New Normal

Nothing Bad Between Us author Marlena Fiol has written a new blog post on the success of her book launch, read about the exciting event here!

Friday Brief Blog: Stepping Into the New Normal

Last night, I had the privilege of joining Sherry Belul for the online book release launch for Nothing Bad Between Us, graciously hosted by Annie Bloom’s Books. If you were unable to attend, don’t worry! You can watch the event on YouTube by clicking here. 

It was a wonderful evening full of shared insights, memories, experiences, and, most importantly, stories. I admit, I found the prospect a little strange at first. Zoom literature readings are new to me! However, the warmth radiated from all involved led to a lovely community experience. I can’t wait to do my next online event (which will be announced very soon)!

Until then, remember, we are together on this journey!


Nothing Bad Between Us

A Mennonite Missionary’s Daughter Finds Healing in Her Brokenness

This story differs from similar accounts of childhood domination or abuse because it tells the story of the author’s seemingly paradoxical responses to the powerful forces in my life, but doesn’t leave it at that. It sheds light on the social and religious dynamics underlying these responses, giving readers insights into and understanding of her otherwise incomprehensible choices, as she found my way back into loving relationships with her parents and the Mennonite community.
