Hear from Alia Joy, author of “Glorious Weakness,” who came face to face with weakness, poverty, and loss in ways that made her doubt God was good. She will share from her journey and lived experience with bipolar disorder. Alia has explored what it means to be "poor in spirit," and challenges our cultural tendency to "pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps". She inspires anyone who has struggled with feeling inadequate, disillusioned, or just too broken to find hope and embrace true vulnerability and authenticity, with God and one another, demonstrating how weakness does not disqualify us from inclusion in the kingdom of God – instead, it is our very invitation to enter in. Alia’s message is an antidote to despair, helping weary hearts reclaim the truth that God is good, even when life has brought heartache and pain.
