“We are more aware of negative things that trigger our partner and more open to seeing from each other’s point of view. We learned how to listen to each other, relate to how the other is feeling, and understand what they are trying to communicate.”

Inside the Lesson

In this episode, host Noel Meador talks with Taya Kyle, wife of legendary U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who was killed in 2013 by a young veteran he was trying to help. As a companion to her husband’s bestselling book, American Sniper, which was made into a critically acclaimed film in 2014, Taya wrote American Wife.

In her book, Taya describes what it was like to be married to the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history. Her life, she says, has had four themes: love, war, faith, and renewal, and she hopes her story will inspire other military and non-military spouses alike to seek out the themes in their own lives. Like many military wives, Taya struggled with intense fear during her husband’s deployments. She has learned, through Chris’s example, how to live a fearless life and to rely on her faith in God to get her through the difficult days.

Since her husband’s death, Taya has made a point to live each day to be happy and make the world a better place. Even in the face of pain and tremendous loss, she shares the secret to getting through each day, one by one: “We want to be strong enough to not let anything get us down, but we can’t do it all, and we have to be okay with that.”
