Wynter Pitts  Mom of 4 girls. Author, speaker and founder of For Girls Like You-Christ Focused Magazine, Devotionals and resources for girls!

From Wynter’s husband Jonathan: It brings me such hope to know that Wynter’s legacy will live on, first and foremost, through our four beautiful daughters. I just see it so clearly in this video posted by our daughter @alenapitts. Wynter’s legacy will also live on through her ministry. She always intended for it to be bigger than her. More to come soon on that. #wynter #wynterslegacy #Repost @alenapitts with @get_repost

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything

But we don't get to be here long

We don't get to be here long
Though my heart may be in pieces
My eyes are still set on you
And though I can't keep it together
I know that you'd want me to

Oh, I'm swimming in the grief
And there's no anchor that could hold me down

I don't want any relief
'Cause I don't wanna let you go right now

Be here Long by @needtobreathe ———————————————————————-I’ve loved this song my entire life but little did I know one day it would randomly play and apply to my life. For those of you wondering: me and my family are doing better. Grief comes and goes and sometimes I can’t feel God. But I’m putting my faith in him and trusting he will fulfill what he’s promised. Thankyou to everyone for the encouragement and love poured out to my family and I in these past two weeks. We love you guys and you mean more than you could ever imagine💛

We would love for you to join us in celebrating Wynter’s life. Whether you’re able to join us at Oaks Church or online, the information is below.

From Jonathan:
.
Words cannot express the love my family has felt since last night. We are heartbroken and in much pain, but we rest in the hope that we have in Jesus Christ.  You can never know for sure if you are young or old because you don’t know when the Lord will call you home. So if Wynter’s life and sudden passing teaches you anything, learn to live every day in light of that fact.  God is a good father.  He did not stop loving Wynter when she left this earth. His love only got more real to her. I find solace in that fact.
.
Wynter lived a fuller life than most people live in double her 38 years.  Well done, babe.  Well done.
.
I celebrate you babe for an extraordinary life of giving to your children, me, and a world in need of hope.
.
I love you and I always will.  Your children will spend every day rising up and calling you blessed.  You have left an incredible legacy.
.
I love you Beasy.

From Jonathan Pitts (Wynter’s husband) ——- Last night, Wynter was taken from us suddenly but we know that she was only taken into the hands of the God that she loves with her whole heart. Though we grieve, we are doing so with hope. And though we hurt, her life and her legacy will continue on through each one of us, especially my four daughters. Thank you for your prayers, specifically for them. ——————-From Alena Pitts our oldest daughter:

On July 24, 2018 Jesus took my precious mommy off this earth. It happened within a couple hours and was so sudden. My heart hurts like never before. Comfort seems far. Anxiety is extremely present. It still feels like a dream that I will wake up from soon. I will remember those thirty minutes for the rest of my life. And I will remember the pain I felt as I found out. But the surgeon who was on site who is also a family friend repeated this phrase to me as I walked down that hospital hallway. And for some reason I couldn’t forget them. As they told me my mom had passed, these words continued and still continue to pound in my head. “I’m gonna tell you something I need you never to forget, ok? You serve a big God. A big God. Don’t you ever forget that.” I serve a big God. Obstacles will be thrown at me but my God is still there. He knows what he’s doing and he’s got a plan. I say this not by sheer will but through faith. In the moment, his plan may seem outrageous and I may not understand. I continue to ask myself why me. Why did He choose my family?But I’m reminded He’s in control. So even as I weep and grieve, I can smile with joy because I’ll see her again. Even now she’s been throwing little winks at me. Please be praying for my family as my three younger sisters and I have lost our mommy and my dad has lost his best friend.❤️

Shorty. And in case you are wondering, I don’t mean the dog.

Loved serving alongside @alenapitts @kirbyisaboss and @chelseakaycrockett this weekend! So encouraged by and grateful for these young ladies- their heart, leadership and example! #reelgirlconference

When you are away from home but still find yourself in the same city as family because you’re all speaking at the same event.

Feeling grateful for every part of this photo! 💓 94 years with Uma...@pittsjr26 grandmother!

At first glance these photos (swipe!) don’t appear to have much in common, but the truth is they are a part of the same story. I am a yes girl. Meaning, when God asks me to do something... no matter how crazy, uncomfortable or unusual it may seem, I say yes (not always perfectly) but I am learning that it is in those moments of obedience that we get to experience the abundant life promised. When I wrote God’s Girl Says Yes, I had no idea that it would launch on the exact same day that our family moves into a new home, in a new city- leaving everything we know behind!! Excited about this part of our journey and praying that my journey will encourage girls all around the world. Following God is not about what we can’t do but about what He will do when we #sayyestogod! ...
God’s Girl Says Yes is in store today! Link in profile💓

July 4th 😍 #familytime

Y’all! Don’t miss this week’s episode of @leadinggirlspodcast with @iamtammyfranklin 🙌🏾 just listen to this sneak perk and follow the link in my profile for the entire episode. So good!!

After 15 yrs, @pittsjr26 finally pulled off a surprise!! He normally gets too excited and tells me, 😂. But not yesterday! After spending the day together, he had a special dessert waiting and some of our special people hiding! Couldn’t have wished for anything sweeter! 😍
