Earlier this month, Todd told his fans “It’s been a whirlwind. Lot of moving parts, lot of things going on in our lives and a lot of seeing God’s movements right now.

Todd explained that he and his wife are not allowed to speak about the trial and their upcoming sentencing; however, he did let fans into how they were doing emotionally.

“We wanted to let everyone know that it’s a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family right now,” Todd admitted. “But we still hold steadfast in our faith and we trust that God will do what he does because God’s a miracle worker, and that’s what we’re holding out for.”

Julie chimed in adding that they are “alive and kicking.”
