"It's more about our journey getting to where we end up when we become 'fully accomplished,'" said Julie Chrisley.
American reality TV star Julie Chrisley and her family has been going through a rough time lately and Chrisley hopes that they will be able to overcome the legal hardships in near future. Julie made some revelations about her life and state of mind while chatting with her husband Todd Chrisley for their family’s podcast episode Chrisley Confessions on Thursday. The duo is scheduled to report to prison in less than a month. "I have been reading and praying and praying with my prayer partner and believing that the journey that we're all on, there is a reason behind it. There is a purpose," the 49-year-old TV personality shared.
Julie has inclined religiously as she made references to a Bible quote while addressing a conversation with her prayer partner."She said something to me that made me think on a different level. Even when Mary got pregnant, as a virgin, with a baby who was going to be the Messiah. In the Bible, it says 'when Mary was fully accomplished,' that's when Baby Jesus was born."
"So I think, a lot of times it's more about our journey getting to where we end up when we become 'fully accomplished,'" she further explained. The Chrisley Knows Best star also noted that "they have to go back and train themselves to know that certain times in our lives are waiting periods. Those waiting periods, we can't just allow them to become a waiting period for waste. It has to be a waiting period that we're gonna grow in," she said.
Todd added his thoughts to Julies and said," I believe that true growth comes at the deepest part of the pain." Amidst the legal battle, a lot of friends and family have seemingly abandoned the Chrisleys to their fate. According to Fox News, the couple’s 25-year-old daughter Savannah vented out her frustrations on her Unlocked podcast. She and Julie had a chat in her podcast episode which was taped before the sentencing and aired Tuesday. "I've watched you struggle with certain people that haven't reached out to you, people that you've known for years, either since you were a child or 20 years, whatever it may be. To not reach out is pretty sad," she told her mother.
According to PEOPLE, Julie and Todd were found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion in June. In November, both of them were sentenced to serve time in prison where Julie will be behind the bars for 7 years and Todd will be there for 12 years. They were also sentenced to an extra 16 months of probation upon their release from prison. Julie and Todd were ordered in December to report to prison in Florida on January 17, 2023. Despite being found guilty, the Chrisleys have claimed that they are innocent. “Chrisleys believed the judge used them as an ‘example’,” a source told the outlet. "They've really been leaning into their faith to pull them through."
