She’s one incredible lady…

Eighteen Years ago tonight, Jamie Jo decided it was worth the risk to walk down the aisle with me.  Little did she know what she was getting into, and I certainly couldn’t even begin to imagine what adventures we would create together, but she still walked with me.

She’s one incredible lady…

We started the adventure in Branson Missouri with Kanakuk Kamps, building a dream home and starting life with 5 little jabronies.  Three biological, and two of the most incredible adopted kids in the world.  Who would have known our little mixed family would have the ups and the downs as it has, and she would be the CEO of the Braner Party of 7.

She’s one incredible lady…

Who would have ever dreamed we would start our own organization called KIVU, start teaching and training Global students, travel in and out of some of the most dangerous countries in the world, and hoist high the banner of adventure?

She’s one incredible lady…

I’ve never known anyone to be so thoughtful, so caring, so loyal, and so committed.  She loves me when I’m up front in a group sharing life, and she cares for me when it’s just us.  She cares for my spirit when I’m excited and encouraged.  She risks her own safety when she jumps into the black holes of darkness and depression when I can’t find my own way out.

She’s one incredible lady…

I’ve watched her grow in spirit, intellect, and creatively in her own social circles this year.  And I’ve never been more proud of anyone in my whole life.

She’s one incredible lady…

And most of all, I’m just excited she wants to continue on this crazy road.  No matter what the hills we have to climb, the twists and turns life throws at us, and the future of the un-known staring us in the face; She’s constant, she’s able, and she’s willing to keep on.

She’s one incredible lady…

Thanks for all you do Jamie Jo.  I love you dearly.
