Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
[In 1837], it was given out that a Mormon elder would preach in the school house adjacent to my father's farm. I, as well as all our neighbors, attended through curiosity, not expecting to hear anything of interest, or that which would benefit us here or hereafter, inasmuch as we had never heard one good word spoken of them. To the surprise of all, the meeting was opened by singing and communion. "The Spirit of God like a Fire is Burning" was sung by the Spirit. And such singing I have never before heard. The other hymns I remember as distinctly as though it was yesterday. They were: "Adam-ondi-Ahman" and "There's a Feast of Good Things For the Righteous Prepared." The elder had the singers with him, all members of the Church. Before the meeting was out, the Spirit of the Lord was manifest to such a degree that I scarcely knew whether I was in heaven or on earth.(This and the following quotations appear in "Remembering Whence They Came" by Karen Sue Parker Utley (Provo, Utah, 2011, pp. 59-60). Spelling and punctuation have been standardized.)

We have framed our own artworks for more than 25 years, and during that time we have provided a variety of framing services to patrons upon request.

Of necessity, all of our framing projects are custom projects that are priced, completed, and billed accordingly. For example, inasmuch as the Studios does not maintain a selection of off-the-shelf moulding options, moulding styles actually available at the time of a request for information about framing options must be researched...
