Taya Kyle, wife of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, opens up about life lessons she has learned through the loss of her husband. After losing her husband, “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, bestselling author Taya Kyle entered a period of inconsolable grief. And yet this darkness served as a catalyst for profound growth. Taya found her own reserve of strength with the help of the generous love and support of family and friends—and also many strangers across America, who selflessly shared their own stories of suffering, survival, and triumph. Inspired by her experience, Taya found her calling: spreading a message of how love, passion, and service can combine to help us persevere over personal pain and heal our communities. Her new book, American Spirit profiles more than thirty individuals, young and old, rich and not-so-rich, famous and unknown, who have overcome hardship and done extraordinary things for their communities and for the nation at large.
