Wanjiku’s presentation at Soularize 2021 was amazing! Her passion was inspiring, Her knowledge was persuasive, her presence was inviting and her spirit / love is life-giving. I would highly recommend you consider inviting Wanjiku to share her wit and wisdom with your community.
Thanks Joyce for indulging me in this journey. I learnt a lot especially on self-care. I am able to express myself better without compromising my happiness coz I have learned for me to be there for others, I've got to love, appreciate n take care of myself first otherwise I'll not live long to be there for them.
Thanks so much dear n may God give you have and love to reach out to more mums.
IL WM journey was designed just for me and it fit in well well. My life has been enriched, reinforced for Christ. If you are looking to create good lifelong habits and need to stop balancing your life least you drop one off then Integrated Living should be your next and immediate course to take.
The integrated living course was a very unique experience. I took it on the advice of the program creator and am happy I did. It opened my eyes to a new way to look at life and not wade in the dark in the different phases. If you enjoy a deep dive into things this is for you. Coupled with a great teacher, it is a course that's interesting, helpful and enriching.
Being a stay at home mom is both fulfilling and overwhelming. The integrated living course helped me incorporate all my roles so that I can run an accomplished life-without foregoing self care. I am not yet there but am loving the journey. This is an eye opening course that is suitable for all mothers.
I am glad I participated in the IL-SAHM program facilitated by Joyce Mwangi. It was eye-opening especially on how to get things going as a SAHM without feeling overwhelmed. We studied how to integrate everything! Joyce individualises the training to fit every individual and walks you through and follows up on your commitments. I learnt positive values which I'm applying in my life. It is a program I would recommend to every SAHM.

I am passionate about women and girls...thus my ever increasing quest to see their lives empowered and changed.
I have been in the past trying to juggle all my responsibilities and roles in life, thinking that the more busy I am, the more significance am making. The pressures brought about by trying to keep all the balls balanced caught up with me. I went into prayer asking the Lord to give me a way out.
God is faithful because I was able to go through Integrated Living...which introduced me into a new way of life.
Integrated living has become a part of me, now I can enjoy all that is in my plate without the pressure of making everything work.
I now have enough time for self care and not feel guilty about it.
I thank God for answering my prayers.
Integrated Living for Stay at home mums was an out of norm learning experience mainly because it was conducted via WhatsApp. It gave me an opportunity to log in at my own convenience; be it due to bundle and time availability or just the psyche to indulge in the conversation.
The time I joined the group I was feeling discouraged about the decision to be a stay at home mum. Need I say that by the end of the course I was rejuvenated and at home with this decision. I would attribute this to the constant reminder that being a stay at home mum was a phase (which I had known all along) but had lost sight of it. This encouraged me to make the best of the remaining time.
One of the major tip I learnt from this course was to ‘live life consciously’. Not to let hours and days slip by. To ensure that all other sectors of my life flourish: Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual etc. I was encouraged to keep up with my game plan on how to rejoin the workforce; a plan I had slowly let take a back seat.
Overall, I am glad that I went through the course and I would encourage other stay at home mums to enroll in this course.
Thank you Joyce.
When I started off the integrated living SAHM 10 weeks’ program, I have to confess, I did not know what to expect. However, the sessions were mind-boggling and helped me answer some real hard life questions. For a long time, I was trapped in a glass bubble looking out at the world, seeing other working mums balancing out their lives and living very happily but boy was I wrong. It’s hard to balance life without falling short of one role and feeling miserable and
Joyce Mwangi consistently provides fresh weekly topics to help individuals discern the true nature of integrated living of a stay at home mum; her role, her identity, self-care and her growth. I have now become clearly aware of who I am, my identity in God, where I really want to go and most importantly, what I need to do to get there without the pressure of balancing life. I can now priotize self- care and my relationship with God. I've seen my stress level drop and my overall personal life satisfaction grow by leaps and bounds. I wish other SAHMs can get to learn and live their lives without the unnecessary pressure of balancing life. Thanks Joyce for helping me out. God bless you and order your steps to helping
many other SAHMs.
I joined IL for two reasons; one was to support my friend JM and two to satisfy my curiosity. I wanted to know what IL was all about.
All my life, I have been an extremely private person. One who is strong enough to fight her battles in private and appear very strong in public. One who is ever strong to offer support but weak in admitting that I need support. One who doesn't know how to respond when offered support but bubbles with life when asked for support.
IL gave me an opportunity to focus on ME, MYSELF and I. To get real with myself. Out of those sessions of self reflection, I started on a journey to talk about my 'struggles' and admit my vulnerabilities publicly. "What are my struggles?" You may ask. WAITING! I call myself a 'late bloomer' because I am behind my peers in many areas (I am contented though). Waited 9 years after high school to join university, husband waited 5 years after graduation to find a job, 9 years into marriage still waiting to have a child. I talk about it because I understood that by doing so, I am fulfilling my assignment on earth: Giving hope. I am also slowly learning how to respond to especially moral support.
IL is intense but worth the investment. It gives one an opportunity to interact and fellowship with self; getting real with oneself.
Thank you JM, now I know what IL is all about.
When I heard of the integrated living concept, I got excited, I was not too ready for the class but when I met the teacher she convinced me to give it a try. I can now confirm that the journey of learning opened my eyes to a deep reflection of who I am and how to make most of life as a working mum. It gives freedom and liberation from swinging on the balance. The course is designed in such a way that it takes you through a spiritual journey. I would recommend it for any Working mum who needs a catch-up with herself.
My IL journey was quite timely, at a time I felt lost and yearned to find myself.
By the time I was done with the course, I had a clear understanding of my Identity, Roles and Gifts. I was clear and equipped on how to integrate all that in my life and BLOOM while at it.
My Spiritual Journey was one to behold. I learned a lot of Spiritual Disciplines that keep defining and refining my spiritual intelligence and my relationship with God.
Integrated Living is now my lifestyle and I am loving it.
