Chase Chrisley Affirms ‘God Is with Us’ as Parents Julie and Todd Spend First Day in Prison


Chase Chrisley is keeping the faith on his parents Todd and Julie‘s first days in prison.

The 26-year-old Chrisley Knows Best star reshared a post which stated, “God is with us” from the bible verse Matthew 1:23 on his Instagram Story Tuesday.

The message comes as Todd, 54, checked into the Federal Prison Camp Pensacola to begin his 12-year prison sentence, and Julie, 50, reported to the Federal Correctional Institution and Federal Prison Camp Marianna to serve seven years.

The Chrisleys were sentenced in November, five months after a jury convicted the couple of a multimillion dollar bank fraud and tax evasion scheme. Both Todd and Julie have also been ordered to serve an additional 16 months of probation following their release from prison.

Following his parents’ sentencing in the fall, Chase reshared a post about how loved ones can “unexpectedly be taken from you” on his Instagram Story.

The anecdote chronicled a conversation between two friends in which a man encourages his friend to make dinner for his wife and not take her love for granted.

“It took me a few minutes to realize we were no longer talking about dinner,” the story read, in part. “It was about going out of your way to do something for someone you love because at any moment, they could unexpectedly be taken from you.”

The tale concludes with some simple advice to readers. “Next time someone you love wants to go for a walk or watch a football game or play a board game or just put your phone down and give them your undivided attention, just do it.”

In December, Chase opened up his reason for not immediately speaking out about his parents’ sentencing on his sister Savannah Chrisley‘s Unlocked podcast.

“I think that I don’t owe anybody an explanation. I don’t owe the public an explanation. I don’t need to explain how I feel to anybody, other than the people that I care about and that I love,” he shared at the time. “Obviously, what we have been going through is hell. It is a terrible, terrible situation. But I have to try and find the good, even in the darkest time.”

Chase continued, “I feel like throughout everything that we have been going through, it has made me appreciate things I did not appreciate as much in the past. It’s made me do a lot of reflecting and just kind of figuring out who I am now as a man and who I wanna be in 10 years, and then 10 years from there and 10 years from there.”

The reality star said he’s “not going to worry about what everybody else [in] all the world is thinking and saying” about him.
