Taya Kyle, wife of "American Sniper" visits Aggieland

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX)- The George and Barbara Bush Foundation hosted a special guest Thursday night.

Taya Kyle, wife of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, came to Aggieland to promote her new book “American Spirit: Profiles in Resilience, Courage and Faith."

She spoke to the crowd at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center about her experience losing her husband and how her faith got her through it all.

“It was just nice to connect with them on that level of perseverance and endurance, having that lightness of spirit regardless of what comes to you. I feel like that’s a big thing for the people that are here tonight too, they've lived,” said Kyle.

The book was released in April. It's available in bookstores and on Amazon.
