Inspirational music & message from
Circle of Friends President Lisa Troyer
Every woman needs acceptance, love and a place to belong. That’s the underlying theme of the new music CD, A Place to Belong (Lifeway Worship) from singer/songwriter Lisa Troyer, president of Circle of Friends Ministries. Refreshingly authentic and dynamic, the companion worship CD to Troyer’s recently released book, A Place to Belong: Out of Our Comfort Zone and into God’sAdventure (Barbour Publishing), tenderly draws women into a place of true freedom and belonging in the very heart of God.

In her book,Troyer shares her own journey to acceptance as well as the story of a group of dynamic “women helping women” who call themselves the Circle of Friends. Troyer encourages readers to form their own circle of friends, a safe place of truth and love where women can develop lasting relationships and discover together the purposes of God for their lives.
Obviously noticeable in both the book and CD is Troyer’s passion to lead others into the bottomless love of God. This fierce desire compelled her to plunge deeply into the heart of the issues all women face, but most keep to themselves. With tendencies toward depression, anxiety attacks and an eating disorder, Troyer knows firsthand the bondage of secrecy and shame. “Living with a secret,” Troyer admits, “doesn’t make it go away. It doesn’t change your heart. As well hidden as your secret is, that is how deeply lonely you will be. I’ve been there. I know it’s true.”

The newly released companion CD reinforces her book’s admonition that there is complete freedom and acceptance to be found in the Father. “This CD was birthed out of the knowledge that music is so often used by God to solidify a written and/or spoken message,” says Troyer. “Dawn Yoder and I have been blessed by the friendship and songwriting partnership God’s given us, and songs like ‘Let Us Bow Down,’ ‘Lifting My Praise Up’ and ‘I Found Grace’ (Circle of Friends theme song) are reflective of how, by finding a place to belong, we are inspired to share encouragement, while keeping our focusing on worshipping in ‘Spirit and in truth.’”

A Place to Belong has the potential of changing the way women think about themselves, about others and about doing God’s work in this world. In both her book and worship CD, Troyer challenges women to connect to one another, comfort each other and affirm each other in using the gifts God has given them. Ultimately, A Place to Belong offers a healing dose of real hope that life can be rich, life can have purpose and no woman need ever be alone.

The new Circle of Friends CD is available online at and iTunes. It can also be purchased through your local Christian retailer.

Lisa Troyer is available for speaking opportunities. For more information,

  6. I love praise music. To me it is a mini-vacation from the stress of this world. It reminds me of whose I am and where I am going. It gives me the strength to keep on and to face what it ahead. It takes me to my Father's lap for a warm hug when I feel down and discouraged.

    Smitten would be my choice from your swap list. Thanks


  7. I love worship music because it first gets me into a joyful mindset. Second it gives me the peace that I am in the presence of the mighty God, that I am singing and raising my hands to Him. Also gives me the everlasting peace that only you can get from the Lord. It doesn't have to be loud, in fact the softer music gets me to the restful place in the Almighty's arms.When I am in that place, then the music can build and then I feel like David dancing before the Lord.

  14. I often find myself, waving my hand at the stop light, and 'pumping' up the praise while in the car. It is when I am at home (sometimes church), that I dance like David! Music like discipleship is joy. Great idea to have a cd with a book. I'm more of a Kirk Franklin and Candy Staton listener. Music is just one of the many ways we can praise Him. I can't wait to read the book. Great connection that Tryon has. I just signed up for a huge women's Bible Study in my area for the fall. Thank you Casey for keeping me in the cup runneth over.

  15. love to be entered thanks
