Savannah Chrisley is opening out about the challenges of being a single parent to her 16-year-old brother Grayson and 10-year-old sister Chloe while both of their parents are doing time in jail. In the most recent episode of her podcast, Unlocked With Savannah Chrisley, Savannah discussed the recent changes in her life and the events that led to a “full-on breakdown.”
“Where I am in the tale right now, with Chloe and Grayson…
My dad warned me that it would be challenging, but ultimately worthwhile, so I was prepared. I’m starting to understand it. It’s weird because I went from sitting in the same chair and asking God, “Why would you allow all these things to happen?” to sitting in the same chair and thanking God. Right now I’m in a tranquil spot, “Since Savannah’s parents, Todd and Julie Chrisley, reported to jail to begin their combined 19-year terms, she has had her fair share of highs and lows, as Savannah explained. After being convicted on federal tax evasion charges in June, the court sentenced Todd, 53, to 12 years and 16 months of probation in November and Julie, 50, to 7 years and 16 months of probation.
They need Chloe and Grayson to witness serenity and tranquillity, she said. “Finding more constructive means of dealing with and coping with adversity is essential. Given that I am not their mother, I am making an effort to assume some of their mother’s responsibilities, no matter how small. In other words, I can’t claim the paternity of those kids. My relationship with them is a sibling. It’s challenging to maintain my sisterly position when you’re also the disciplinarian.”
Savannah said that she is “grieving the loss of parents” and finding it difficult to step into the position of “mother” for both Grayson and Chloe.
“After losing both of my parents, I feel a deep sense of loss. The past that I once knew, “This was revealed by the 25-year-old TV star. “After spending the weekend with my parents, I have a clearer vision of my future and my family’s future once we’ve gotten out of this.”
“A complete meltdown occurred in me the other night. I was looking for Chloe’s outfits for a trip to see my parents and her hair accessories. To express my emotions, I sat on the floor and began to sob “As Savannah said, “No, I’m not my mom. I don’t even know where to begin. I don’t think I’m qualified to take on the role she’s had for so long.”
Savannah mentioned that Chloe had praised her aunt for the job she’s been doing in Todd and Julie’s absence, so clearly, all of her hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed.
“Next day Chloe told me, “You’re doing a fairly good job.” I had been sitting there. Last night you prepared me ramen noodles, and they were delicious “she reflected, before disclosing one of the recent initiatives taken by the family. “From now on, every Sunday, you guys tell me what you want for supper, and we’ll plan our meals for the week, and we’ll purchase the groceries for the week, and you’ll know what you’re going to eat every night.”
Savannah claims that despite all that has happened, even the prayers that have seemingly gone unanswered, she has found some peace of mind in the knowledge that her parents are finally at rest.
Savannah stated, “Seeing both of my parents right now languishing in federal prison camps and still enjoying so much serenity is the one thing that has changed my mentality around.” “My father has told me he feels at peace with himself for the first time in his life. This past weekend I went home to see my mom and dad. In all my life, I have never felt Jesus’s presence more strongly than I did in that room.”
Todd and Julie have made it clear that they will appeal their conviction and that they will continue to rely on their trust in God throughout the process. The duo promised to keep in touch with their fans in the final episode of Chrisley Confessions before they reported to prison.
At the close of the program, Todd said, “We adore every individual who phones in, every person that considers themselves a fan.” “We promise to get back to you ASAP. Wishing you the best of luck and God’s favor.”
