Walk the Seasons with Mercy
by Ulana Bochan
Ulana M. Bochan's current book, Walk the Seasons With Mercy, is an extension of her philosophy of life, dealing with the universal values of faith, humility, compassion and unconditional love.
Prompted by interaction with students in a Mercy School, Ulana adopted a mission-driven philosophy of mercy and love. Ulana shares the positivism that can naturally evolve from incorporating these values. Her innovative, inspirational approach highlights a needed perspective for daily living. Adhering to a merciful way of life, with a reliance on God, can promote a spiritual self-sufficiency that can withstand the glaring, screaming, daily headlines of injustice while, at the same time, initiating a more loving approach towards others. Skillfully composed with interspersed seasonal photographs to match these universal values, the book's content is interwoven with original poetry, reflective thought, and meditative prayer.
This book can become a worthy companion for channeling positive energy towards engendering a spiritual awakening to the goodness of life in all its forms.
