I just read that any customizations made to the functions.php file will be overwritten after any Genesis child theme update.
Is this true?
If it is true, then should I be using one of the following plugins: Genesis Extender or Code Snippets?
How do you all go about addressing this?
Child themes are never updated automatically, only the framework received auto-updates.
If a new version of a child theme is ever updated, you'll have to compare the changes against your child theme manually and decide if it's actually worth upgrading or not.
I guess I could do that using my local dev environment which is DesktopServer and compare that to the live site.
Each child theme comes with a Changelog that tells you what has been updated. Use that as your guide.
