Taya Kyle            

Advocate for Military Veterans and Families; Widow of Former U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle

Taya Kyle is the widow of late U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. The couple's story was portrayed in the Academy Award-winning film American Sniper directed by Clint Eastwood, starring Bradley Cooper as Chris and Sienna Miller as Tara. She is also a New York Times bestselling author.

Kyle is the founder and executive director of Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, which was created after her husband's death. The foundation partners with national organizations, corporations and patriotic citizens to continue Chris Kyle's legacy of serving God, country and family. Kyle's experiences with struggling service members propel her forward, whether they are suicidal, their marriage is ending, they have fallen to addiction, or more.

According to Kyle, the success in military marriages is different than in the civilian world and requires different tools. At Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, Kyle's goal is to change the world by fighting for the marriages of those who fight for us. Her work has had a life changing impact on military and first responder couples and their children. With a team of people behind the mission, CKFF is helping these families not only survive, but thrive throughout their life of service.

In the New York Times Bestselling book "American Wife," Kyle recounts the tremendous highs and lows in her unpredictable life as the wife of an American hero. Her new book, "American Spirit," with co-author Jim DeFelice, profiles other Americans whose resilience, courage and faith inspire movements of light in a world full of darkness.

Currently, Kyle resides in Texas with her two children. She is also a public speaker, inspiring others to persevere while articulating the trials and tribulations of love, war, faith and renewal. She has also been a Fox News contributor, audio book narrator, television host, aspiring children's book author and literal soccer mom. She is passionate about freedom, love and service to others.
