Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Ryan Roberts. I am a husband, a father, a Christ follower, a musician, a teacher, a preacher and an avid reader. I currently live in Boise, Idaho. I have spent most of my life living in Idaho except for an eight year stint where my family and I lived in Daejeon, South Korea. You can read about that adventure at RobertsinKorea.
I have a B.A. in Elementary Education, an M.A. in Education (Curriculum and Instruction) and an M.A. in Religion (Spiritual Formation) all from Northwest Nazarene University. I have a Doctor of Ministry Degree (May 2011) in Christian Leadership from Drew University.
I have worked as a teacher and an administrator in public/private education in the United States and internationally for 20+ years. I am an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene and have served as a full-time associate pastor for three years and as a part-time bi-vocational pastor for fourteen years. For four years I served as an Assistant Professor of Education and the Director of Student Teaching at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, and currently I am working as a Fifth Grade Teacher in public education and am thankful to be reengaged in my first love of teaching elementary students.
I have a wonderful wife, two incredible daughters and two fantastic son-in-laws. I am thankful for the gift of life and pray that I will be a good steward of all that God has given me.
Every moment of life is precious. It is my hope and prayer that your visit to my corner of the blogosphere will warm your heart to the things of God.
The blog is great; there are little "gems" of encouragment for me to read. Be blessed. I recently left a post; I hope you get to read some of them as I will leave a few more. I hope to visit with you in July. Many blessings my friend.

My wife and I are applying for positions at GSIS. Your blog is helpful to get a feel of South Korean life as an Intl. School teacher.
Would you email me if you would be willing to answer a few questions?
