The Doors that God Opens
How Resilience and Determination led to a Doctorate
by Dr. Elizabeth Small

The Doors that God Opens tells the story of a woman, who from at birth displayed resilience, strength, and determination. However, she didn’t do it by herself, even though she didn’t know it yet, God was truly her compass and guide. She had the unconditional love not only from God but from her mother along with the faith and prayers of her grandmother enabling her to learn, develop, and apply these traits to overcome so many obstacles and adversities. Despite being abused as a baby, getting pregnant at 16, and losing her best friend, Dr. Small didn’t let that become her story. She used her the support system, on earth and in heaven and gave her life to Christ and let God guide her life. She also used her resilience, strength, and determination with all the lessons she learned along the way from her family, the military, and more to open the doors that God had for her and truly live the life that God planned for her bringing her to places that she couldn’t even dream of as a child. No matter where or how you start if you can use resilience, strength, determination, and most importantly God, then there is no limit to where you can go.
