The Wiley “Coyote” Family

We’re the Wiley’s and we homeschool our kids. Well, we “Christian Unschool” our kids who are now 7 and 3. We’re a bit unconventional and enjoy keeping life simple, including minimizing our desire for consumerism so we can focus on what matters most.

We live in beautiful Oregon. We started a small business in 2008 called EIGHTDAY which led us to cofound multiple start-ups, one of the most recent being Circle with Disney. Kyle is an innovative, creative business leader. Crystal, along with homeschooling full-time, runs Broken to Brave – a non-profit that delivers gift boxes of life-giving, inspirational books to local children enduring hardship.

We love coffee, clean-eating, reading and spending time as a family. We regularly go adventuring together – hiking, camping, enjoying snow and water sports. We illustrate how using interest-led learning helps teach our children that God made them uniquely, in His own image, and they too can live their lives with purpose on an unbeaten path for God’s greater plan. You can read more into our thinking at What Is Christian Unschooling?

Did I mention we love Jesus?

Welcome to our journey as we learn more about trusting God’s grace, the Bible, our world and ourselves (including how our son used to hate posing for photos).


Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways submit to him, and He will make your paths straight.
~ Proverbs 3
