Not only that, but Champs said that she had never told the pastor about her childhood dream of becoming a lawyer.

Despite her initial apprehension, she dutifully re-enrolled in school and acquired her GED. Then, she took classes at Houston Community College before going on to attend the University of Houston–Downtown.

“She told me that God would take care of me,” Champs says of Louise’s encouragement.

Finally after years of hard work, 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.

As a means of celebrating the exciting occasion, Champs posed for a series of photos with the five “mini-lawyers” to whom she credits her success.

“I took the pictures with my kids because they helped me through school. They’re graduating too!” Champs joked. “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!”
