Ieshia Champs is a single mother of 5 and are an over comer in Christ Jesus! Despite going through many devastating losses in life, she is still alive victoriously. Only because at the right time God has intervened with His destined plan for Ieshia through her pastor in charge! And when she kept her steps in accordance to the guidance of God, she got a reason to celebrate !By God’s grace the 33 year old is able to fulfill her childhood dream of graduating from a law school and the celebration is covered it all!
Becoming a lawyer was the childhood dream of Ieshia Champs . But her rocky upbringing as a teenager stacked the odds against her in a pathetic way. She didn’t had a stable guidance from her parents.Her mom was a drug addict and her father was deceased. She was homeless and used to live with her friends or whoever would take her in. Eventually she got pregnant with the first of her five children. And shortly after that she dropped her high school study and joined for a job at a call center.
At the age of 24, when she was pregnant with her 4th children another tragedy hit her life like the story of Job in Bible! Her house burned down and she lost her job and her mother died with a stroke and the father of her children passed away from cancer. And the whole episodes of tragedy lead her to commit suicide and this Texas mother tried to take her own life!
But just after her suicide attempt she received a serendipitous phone call from the pastor of her church, the Ministers for Christ Christian Center!“Pastor Louise Holman called me one day and said the God told her to tell me to go back to school and get my GED, because that lawyer I wanted to be, I’ll be it!” She explained, I thought it was a little crazy because I was too old and I had three children with my fourth child on the way”!
Despite the initial apprehension, she decided to re enroll and acquire her GED. Thereafter she took classes at Houston Community College before going to attend the University of Houston-Downtown! Finally the 33 year old mother is due to graduate Magna Cum Laude from the Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law in May!
Today,she celebrates her victory with her five “mini lawyers”, to whom she credits her success!
She explains the reason for celebrating the exciting occasion with her five kids ” because they helped me through school. ..They would help me review with flash cards while I cooked. They would sit as a mock jury while I taught them what I learned that day. I would sit in my closet and pray and cry because I was overwhelmed and my oldest son, David, would gather his siblings, give them a snack, make them take a bath, gather their school clothes, all to make things easier for me. And I had no knowledge of him doing that until I went to do it!”
What a glorious victory she had in her life ! We wish you all the very best in life! Stay blessed!
