Taya Kyle heads to Wyoming for 3rd Empowered Spouses Retreat

Taya Kyle heads to Wyoming for 3rd Empowered Spouses Retreat This week, Taya Kyle and the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation will host 24 spouses from the military and first responder communities in Wyoming for its third Empowered Spouses Retreat. The Retreat – a vision of Ms. Kyle for the Foundation that honors her husband, American Sniper, Chris Kyle – takes place in a remote location and each of the women has the chance to unwind, compare and support each other around the stresses and strains a life of service provides and be taken out of their comfort zone with a range of activities that allow them to feel empowered. Participants – including those new to the Foundation and a select few that have been involved in other programs with the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation with their husbands – will have access to accredited coaches, along with the chance to spend time with Ms. Kyle herself. VIDEO: 2016 Empowered Spouses Retreat Taya takes pride in being hands on for the Empowered Spouses Retreat, along with all programs that she volunteers her time to the Foundation for. “The Empowered Spouses Retreats are such positive experiences that each time, the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation team and I have left Wyoming with our hearts open and full, we’ve been warmed that these amazing women have been together – laughing, crying, hugging – and sharing their common experiences,” said Taya Kyle. “The biggest affirmation that many of them find from the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation Empowered Spouses Retreat is that they aren’t alone. “They aren’t alone in their experiences, they aren’t alone in the strains and stresses a life of service places on their...

Taya’s Update – CKFF impacting over 8 marriages per week!

Taya’s Update – CKFF impacting over 8 marriages per week! We launched the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation in 2014 with the aim of making a difference in the lives of married service couples around the country. By providing opportunities that life in the military or as a first responder may not afford them; whether that be due to time constraints, financial hardship and sadly, of course, injury or treatment; the CKFF team is doing whatever it takes to serve the marriages of those that serve us.  I remember the emotion of the first award call we made – then meeting that couple in Jamaica and how excited they were.  I’m proud to see the development of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation since that time. We now have four programs in operation – Date Night Out, Revitalization Retreats, Empowered Spouses Retreat and Mastering Your Marriage. This first quarter of 2018 has allowed us to serve more couples than ever before.   So far in 2018 on average, over 8 marriages per week have been impacted by a Chris Kyle Frog Foundation Program. The number equates to around 2.5 people every single day within the service community over the past three months that is feeling the support of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation! We’ve had so many amazing couples come into our ‘CKFF Family’ with heart-warming stories to tell.   Overwhelmingly, when a couple has been impacted by a Chris Kyle Frog Foundation program, the feedback also has common themes of affirmation: “we felt instantly at peace”, “we were able to communicate in ways we haven’t for years”, “he/she changed from the moment we arrived”, “we’ve continued to communicate since returning and things have never been...

Chicago to Honor Chris Kyle with April Gala

The second annual Chicago Gala to benefit the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation will be held on April 14th, 2018 in Chicago, IL at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. The Gala has been designed as a key 2018 fundraiser for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation – a foundation dedicated to serving military and first responder marriages. The Foundation was launched in honor of American Sniper Chris Kyle by his wife, Taya following his murder five years ago to carry on his legacy. In line with the work Chris was doing with those who served before his death in 2013, the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation carries through on his vision of providing experiences for military and first responder couples aimed at enhancing their marriages and providing an environment for those marriages to thrive. Statistically, service marriages result in a far higher divorce rate than those of non-service marriages, with the rigors of serving in military or first responder units taking their toll at home. In announcing the Gala, Taya Kyle highlighted the work in Chicago that first responder units do in protecting the city and the high population of military service veterans in and around Illinois. “We’re excited to be heading back to Chicago and cementing the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation Gala on the April calendar in Chicago,” said Ms. Kyle. “We’ll be using the event give back to the community, by providing experiences to military and first responder couples in the area. “It is no secret that especially the first responders in Chicago have been under a lot of pressure over recent times – but as they do – they continue...
