Following the murder of her husband Chris Kyle, Taya founded the Taya and Chris Kyle Foundation (formerly Chris Kyle Frog Foundation) where she volunteers her time as Executive Director. The foundation continues Chris Kyle’s legacy serving God, country and family. With a team of people behind the mission and donations coming in across the globe, the Taya and Chris Kyle Foundation is helping first responder and military families not only survive their life of service, but thrive.
Taya resides in Texas where she is first and foremost a woman after God’s heart and a mother of her two children. She is a public speaker inspiring others to find light in the midst of darkness. As she articulates the trials and tribulations of love, war, faith and renewal, Taya helps others realize they are not alone.
Taya is also a Fox News contributor, author with new books in 2018 and 2019, and is currently working on two other television projects.
