Savannah Chrisley Praises Her Parents: ‘I’ve Never Seen Two People Be So Steadfast in Their Faith’

By Movieguide® Contributor

The Chrisley family are dealing with a series of issues, from a dangerous car accident, to ongoing legal trouble. 

Todd and Julie Chrisley are facing jail time after being convicted of financial crimes. Just days before the couple’s sentencing, 16 year-old son Grayson was involved in a “horrific” car crash.

“I remember looking at Grayson on that stretcher in the back of that ambulance and him crying and the police stopping to talk to me before they took me to him and all I could think of was thank you God because he is alive and crying,” Todd said.

He continued, “Then, they said you want to ride with him to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and I said, ‘I’m not going anywhere. I’ll be with him until he comes home with me.’ So, I remember holding his hand and saying, ‘It’s ok. It’s gonna be ok.’”

The reality star also said his family was “blessed” because it “was property damage and not a life loss.”

He and his wife are also dealing with their ongoing legal issues. Earlier this summer, Todd was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States. Julie was convicted of the same charges, as well as wire fraud and obstruction of justice. 

Their sentencing took place on November 21. A federal judge sentenced Todd to 12 years in prison and Julie to 7 years. 

Daughter Savannah recently updated fans on how her parents are facing the situation. 

“They’re pushing through,” she said. “We’re at a place where we put our faith in God. We definitely don’t put our faith in the system.”

Savannah continued, “I’ve never seen two people, my parents, be so steadfast in their faith and in prayer … just literally on their knees every morning praying. It’s just so admirable, and that’s kinda just my focus. Just watching them and still learning … growing from them in times like this, and just kinda staying strong through it all … knowing that, in the end, the truth will prevail. And it may get harder before it gets easier, but we have faith.”

The Chrisleys are outspoken about their Christian faith. Movieguide® previously reported:

CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST star Todd Chrisley admitted that he “fell short” of God’s expectations after being convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion, along with his wife Julie. 

In a recent episode of his podcast, CHRISLEY CONFESSIONS, he explained, “God has literally taken me to a place where I have so much peace with no longer worrying about trying to please – or trying to meet the expectation of someone else.”

“The expectation I long to meet is of God,” he continued. “God expects me to be a good, decent, honorable human being. He expects me to honor His word, He expects me to be the leader of my household, He expects me to set an example for my wife, my children, to lead by example.”

Chrisley shared that he always worked to do this, “but where I fell short in doing that is that I really didn’t give glory to God in all of the things we were accomplishing because I felt like I was the one doing the work. I was the one getting up every day, I was the one staying up late at night not thinking that God was the one giving me the energy to be able to do that.”

The reality star said that he has now “surrendered” everything to God after realizing he couldn’t ​​”tell the difference between my self-worth and my net worth. And the bigger my net worth became the less I focused on my self-worth. Because everything was being built around that net worth.” 

The couple are facing jail time for their financial misdeeds, and will be sentenced in October. They are still hopeful about the future, though. 

“[The] storm that we’re going through right now eventually it’s going to end … exactly the way that God intends for it,” Julie explained. 

“I feel like that my marriage, for me personally, internally, is the strongest that it’s ever been,” Chrisley added. “I feel like for the first time in my life and my marriage, I feel like my marriage is feeding a part of me that I didn’t even know was starving.” 

Julie agreed, saying, “You and I have been a team since day one. I think for both of us, this situation, our season of life right now has shown us it’s not about what our plan is, it’s about what God’s plan is.”
