Chapter One (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

The story only begins with your voice
Can you handle your own words?
This is the first chapter of your life
Are you ready to tell your version?

It’s time to establish your characters
Give motive to your life and a setting
This is the chance to gain power
Give motion to your own narrative

Let the meaning of life shine through
It’s the words that will renew faith
It’s the words that will renew the people
Let your letters explore a destiny fulfilled

This is the first chapter of your life
The first words of the rest of your life
