The widow of American Sniper Chris Kyle spent time Wednesday at Texas A&M and talked about values and ethics.

A&M's Delta Gamma Sorority hosted the event, where Taya Kyle also shared some advice when it comes to her own life experiences.

Many have watched Taya and Chris' lives played out on the big screen in the movie "American Sniper." She also has a book titled, "American Wife: A Memoir of Love, War, Faith and Renewal."

Kyle held a book signing at the Texas A&M Bookstore. The line was wrapped around the store as students and their families waited to meet Kyle.

The A&M Singing Cadets, which sang at Chris' memorial at AT&T Stadium a few years back, greeted Kyle with a song as she walked in.

In an interview with News 3 before the event, Kyle said she had an honest message and advice for dealing with obstacles.

"One thing I've been surprised by is, sometimes, how life really can knock you around," said Kyle. "I knew that, but I don't think I knew to the level, and it's not just my own experiences. It's friends and other people that I've met, and that it's probably more realistic to expect it and to have your faith be so strong that you don't get shaken by it, and sometimes, I think it's a different perspective that can help you get through the hard times if you're a little bit more prepared for it.

Taya Kyle also discusses her experience watching a life-changing moment play out on the big screen, and how sharing her story has helped her get through the tough times. You can hear more from her Sunday night at 10:00 p.m. on News 3.
