Former columnist for Practical Homeschooling Magazine.

Ellyn has home schooled three of her four children all the way through high school. About 15 years ago, she started The Elijah Company, a mail-order business that sells what she and her husband Chris consider the most effective resources for educating children at home.

Ellyn has always been an entrepreneur and her passion for business has led her to want to help homeschooling families build their own businesses.
