  • Faith

    My life has been a journey of turning fear into faith. Only God could have taken me through despair and tragedy to a place where I find peace, love, majesty, and even joy in this chaotic, messy world. I am eternally grateful and hope to help others find the same.

  • Family

    Learning about loving others through triumph and tragedy has become a passion of mine. With my hardships and lessons, I have seen how loving others well can change a family's dynamic for generations. My struggles have provided me with intensive training grounds. I aim to share what I have learned with all who hope, as I do, to leave a lasting legacy of love.

  • Freedom

    I founded the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation as a way to continue a post-deployment legacy Chris began, helping veteran and first responders keep their families in tact as the rigors of service life threaten to tear them apart.

  • Legacy

    Chris's death showed me the power of legacy in a well-lived life. He inspired many and gave me his American Legacy to carry while I began creating my own. I aim to leave a legacy of loving others well while inspiring others to do the same. What's your legacy?
