Chase Chrisley shared a story about making the most of your time with people a week after his parents Todd and Julie Chrisley were sentenced to a collective 19 years in prison.
The tale, titled “Make the Chili,” details a man encouraging his friend to make his wife’s favorite meal, despite it being an inconvenience, because life is short. The “Chrisley Knows Best” alum, 26, reposted it to his Instagram Story on Monday.
“It took me a few minutes to realize we were no longer talking about dinner. 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,” it read in part.
The story ended with encouraging people to “put your phone down and give them your undivided attention. Just do it. Make the chili.”
Chase has kept tight-lipped on his thoughts about his parents’ sentencing, but his other siblings haven’t been so quiet.
Last week, Savannah Chrisley revealed that she has custody of her 16-year-old brother Grayson and 10-year-old niece Chloe.
“[I”m] trying to navigate how you teach two younger children who aren’t fully developed yet and … get them to understand the circumstances,” Savannah, 25, said on her “Unlocked” podcast episode last week. “That’s a really, really difficult thing.”
Savannah’s stepsister, Lindsie, who was previously estranged from Todd, has posted several Instagram Stories since last week — many of which include her hanging out with friends and cryptic quotes.
“We’re all busy, but we’re not too busy to be kind, caring and patient,” her most recent Instagram quote read on Monday. “Remember the best thing you can give someone right now is love.”
Lindsie’s older brother Kyle — who is also from Todd’s first marriage — shared a subtle message from a Bible verse encouraging people to “not judge.”
Todd, 53, and Julie, 49, also discussed their fate prior to their sentencing in an episode of their “Chrisley Confessions” podcast released on Wednesday.
“I know in my heart that I am a Christian. I know I believe that God can work miracles … but I still have this fear,” Julie said, adding that she’s “living through a nightmare.”
For his part, Todd said they didn’t “see justice” when they were convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion in June, but they believe that God will “show it in his time.”
Todd was sentenced to 12 years in federal custody plus 16 months of probation, while Julie was given seven years in prison and 16 months of probation on Nov. 21.
“This sentencing serves notice that no matter a person’s celebrity status, there are severe consequences for defrauding the American tax system,” James E. Dorsey, special agent in charge at the IRS Criminal Investigation Atlanta field office, said at the time.
