Jessica Frierson

Jessica Frierson is a second generation homeschooler now teaching her own ten children. She has experienced firsthand the explosion of homeschooling from the handful fighting for the opportunity, to the many thousands embracing that freedom today. She and her husband, Ernie, knew from the time their first child was born twenty-two years ago that home education would be their only choice. They moved back home to North Carolina in 2000 to take advantage of the less restrictive homeschool laws here. She joyfully serves the Lord through ministry to her family, serving in her local church, writing and encouraging others with the testimony of the treasure of love she has discovered in our Lord Jesus Christ. Jessica is NCHE’s region 2 liaison.
