As the Christian community mourns the unexpected death of author, speaker and blogger Wynter Evans Pitts, her husband is hoping his wife’s death will be a reminder to all that life is short. Wynter was just 38 years old and died in her sleep this week.
On Instagram, Jonathan Pitts writes an inspiring and heartfelt post, with a profound message: “You can never know for sure if you are young or old because you don’t know when the Lord will call you home.”
Jonathan says he and his family are heartbroken from their loss, but are resting in the hope of Jesus Christ.
He writes, “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.”
Jonathan continues, “Wynter lived a fuller life than most people live in double her 38 years. Well done, babe. Well done.”
Jonathan is an author, speaker, and the executive director of the popular Christian broadcast ministry The Urban Alternative. He, along with various family members, announced his wife’s passing Wednesday on social media.
Wynter Pitts was an author, blogger and founder of For Girls Like You magazine and she was the niece of Dallas megachurch pastor Dr. Tony Evans.
In the Instagram post, the family asks first for prayer for Jonathan and the girls. Any cards of encouragement can be sent to them at 445 E FM 1382 Suite 3-324, Cedar Hill, TX, 75104.
Her funeral will take place Saturday, July 28 at The Oaks Church in Red Oak, Texas.
A GoFundMe account has also been set up by a family friend to help her husband and daughters with any needed financial assistance.
A recent post by Wynter shows the young mother along with husband Jonathan and their four girls.
In the post she talked about putting her faith into action, revealing how she had lived her whole life to obey and honor God with her family and her ministry. It’s a poignant reminder to those she leaves behind.
She stated, “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.”
