Thanks in advance for the help.

With this block you change the order in which the
genesis_get_sidebar function, which is responsible for loading the sidebar with the widgets, is executed.
This would be the final result:
Now, thanks to Genesis Framework hooks you can get the sidebar to display before the content on mobile devices if you are using a Genesis child theme.
