In his spare time, he enjoys watching old movies, reading, writing, cooking, and photography. He says he’s not as talented or interesting as Renae, but he aspires to be more like her as he gets older!

He and Renae are musicians who have performed at regional assemblies in NC and GA, and at youth events around the Southeast. They are retreat leaders for adults and youth as well. Renae is the author of three books (her newest is being published in May, 2020) and a songwriter with over 100 titles in her library. Renae and Jamie Brame’s CD’s (at least two of them!) can be found on YouTube and at Amazon, as can Renae’s books (or, you can just tell them you want to buy a CD!).

Renae is the mother of two grown sons, and Renae and Jamie share servanthood to Penny, a 12-year old calico cat.
