Savannah visited her parents in prison

On January 31, 2023, Savannah Chrisley took to her Unlocked podcast to share an update with her fans.

She said that she has “had to figure out how to rebuild,” and that seeing her parents the weekend prior to recording gave her a “sense of hope and peace.”

Savannah added that it may seem “weird to say” that going to a “prison camp” gave her “peace.”

However, she said that she had “never felt the presence of Jesus more” than she did “in that room” when she visited her dad.

During Savannah’s January 31 podcast episode, she read out one of Todd’s emails to her which included words of motivation for his daughter.

She added that her dad was “digging deep in his faith and finding hope and peace.”

Savannah said on her podcast, Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley, on February 7: “My dad said for the first time in his life, he’s felt a level of peace he’s never felt before.”

Todd is “working in the chapel” in prison, per Savannah’s podcast. She added that she “couldn’t be more proud of the man that he is.”
