Taya Kyle

NY Times Best Selling Author, Widow of Chris Kyle, Executive Director of Chris Kyle Frog Foundation

What an emotional and heartfelt visit we have in store this week with special guest, Taya Kyle, widow of US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. She is an author, political commentator, mother, and military veterans family activist.

Taya speaks openly about her life with Chris Kyle, her heart-wrenching experiences, powerful dreams, and a strong faith, which has helped keep her moving forward in life with positivity since Chris’ death. She is nothing shy of an amazing woman – an inspiration to all.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • I’ve really been surprised at how horrible some things have been along the way, yet I realize that I’m happy that I got to experience them and get them out of the way. Now I am who I am, and I’ve learned a lot.
  • The joy with [Chris] and the way he was able to love is extraordinary to me still.
  • I don’t know of another man who loves the way [Chris] loved.
  • [Chris] was a game-changer, and he was the person I changed for.
  • There’s nobody else that is the right mix of things to make me see how it could be better.
  • It’s different when you really love somebody, and you’re ready to have your soul forged.
  • [Chris] had an all-encompassing gentleness. It was like a spirit that wraps you up and says, “you are cared for.”
  • Even after [Chris] died, I could feel that he was still lifting me up.
  • Tragedy becomes part of your story.
  • We have the opportunity to turn losing friends into an appreciation of every minute we do have.
  • I feel good to have absorbed as much as I did, but when they go, it’s never enough.
  • Some people have a need to put their feelings into anger because when you’re angry, you don’t have to feel hurt. It says more about them than you.
  • I’ll be a lifelong learner.
  • I’ve changed in that [Chris’] death doesn’t define me or take me out of the game.
  • God will heal me in time.
