Vivian Pellas: Turning Tears Into Smiles

A Message From Vivian Pellas

I have faced extremely painful circumstances, yet, my faith in God has sustained me. This book is my testament to that. Turning tears into smiles is an art and the secret lies in finding purpose to how we react to what happens to us.

El Corte Ingles

Vivian Pellas, Turning Tears into Smiles, Autobiography, is a book based on a true story to motivate you to transform your mind and the thoughts about life. It will also teach you from her own experience how to:

Overcome the past and understand that this does not define your future

And now, here I was . . . ready to fight to make that dream come true. I was ready to bring it to fruition at any cost. God had saved our lives, and I was ready to respond to Him.

so one day I said to myself: “Vivian, you have to get ahead because life goes on for everyone and you can’t stay behind.

Find a new perspective of the world and of things

Nothing is impossible for a determined heart, because dreams come true when we have the courage to fight for them.

I began to look at life differently. My purpose was to talk about hope and light, as I was convinced that human beings can achieve positive things and transform negative events into life-enhancing experiences, in other words, tears into smiles.

Unlock the power of faith, love and generosity

Every day I would set a goal, every night I would go to bed determined to double-down my efforts to mitigate the pain of thousands of children, that just like I, were feeling the horror of a burn

On several occasions, these children allowed me to see the spiritual greatness that dwells within them. There is no doubt that pain transforms and magnifies

Turn dance into a tribute to life

And so, I made a promise . . . I said to God: . . . “My God, if one day I can walk and dance again, I will do it for the children of Nicaragua

Page 203

With dance I started a new life, and through it I have promoted and honored both life and love.

“Child, I will shelter you with my hair. And in the air will I seek a balm that mitigates the pain. And if the fire rages I will quench it with my tears.“

About Vivian Pellas Turning Tears Into Smiles

Vivian Pellas knows that every minute counts. Her story is one of a life “baptized by fire” and with her immense faith, not only was she able to overcome death, but she now saves lives and mitigates the suffering of many children in Nicaragua, Central America.

With part of her body red hot from the flames and with multiple fractures, she mumbled: “I’m going to build a center for the burned children of Nicaragua,” she didn’t see herself as a victim, she tried to find the divine plan that God had before her from the foundation of the world. Some hear the calling and act, others hear, and ramble on fleeting things.
