Remembering ‘God’s Girl’ Wynter Pitts

On July 24, 2018, this world lost a beautiful soul. Well-known author and speaker, Wynter Pitts, left this world suddenly and unexpectedly for her home in glory. God’s powerful presence of light and grace covered her in this life, and it carried her to straight to Heaven. 

Sudden glory.

No more struggle.

No more pain.

No more carrying the burdens of this world.

Wynter is with her Savior whom she lived for with so much passion in this life. She is home.

Many people from all over the world continue to pour out heart-felt words and prayers for her family as they grieve this tremendous loss. Wynter was wife to Jonathan and mom to their 4 precious girls, Alena, Kaitlyn, Camryn, and Olivia.

She started the ministry and magazine, For Girls Like You, authored several devotional books for young girls, and co-authored a three-book series with her daughter, Alena. Her mission in this life was “to empower and equip girls to walk boldly into becoming who God has created them to be and to provide parents with the resources and support needed to raise strong Christ followers.”

Wynter’s words and legacy of light and hope will live on through her family and loved ones. Our world needs to keep hearing her message. So many young girls who are struggling and hurting need to know there’s a God who loves them and has a purpose and plan for their lives.

As we remember Wynter and the impact she made in her amazing 38 years, here are just a few of the quotes and messages that those who loved her dearly have shared:

Dr. Tony Evans, Wynter’s uncle, wrote, “Please pray for our family. My niece Wynter Pitts unexpectedly passed away last night. A beautiful mother of four girls and devoted wife, Wynter loved her family with a deep commitment. Her ministry to her family paved the way for her to encourage girls to follow God with their whole heart and for their parents to do the same. Wynter was bright, loyal, generous, diligent, and simply a delight. A treasured part of our family. While I will miss her terribly and am heartbroken at the sudden loss of her life here on earth, I am encouraged to know that “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” (2 Cor 5:8).”

Her daughter, Alena Pitts, who starred in the role of Priscilla Shirer’s daughter in the War Room movie, shared on Instagram, “On July 24, 2018 Jesus took my precious mommy (@forgirlslikeyou ) 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 nurse 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.”
