Obituary for Wynter Danielle Pitts (Evans)

Wynter Danielle  Pitts (Evans)
Wynter Danielle Pitts, born Wynter Danielle Evans to Maurice Evans and Viola Carter on January 29, 1980 in Baltimore, Maryland, was a woman who feared the Lord. She was nurtured in a Christian home where as she put it, “The Bible was more than coffee-table décor.” Raised by a single mom, with lots of support from her grandparents and the loving care of her big brother, Wynter gave her life to Christ at age five and was baptized at Christian Life Church in Baltimore, MD. Wynter attended Lockerman Bundy Elementary School and was accepted into the prestigious Roland Park Country School (RPCS) for middle and high school. She graduated from RPCS in 1998 and earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications from Drexel University in 2003. It was in high school and college that Wynter discovered her love for travel. She studied abroad in France during her high school years and in England during her college years. While in college she met her soulmate, Jonathan Pitts. They dated for a short eight months, were engaged for a year and made a commitment to God and each other to be husband and wife on June 27, 2003.They found their greatest commonality in their shared hope and faith in Jesus Christ, and this was the foundation of everything they would do in life from that point on. Focused and determined (some may even say lovingly stubborn), Wynter always knew that she wanted to write for a living. While her first professional job was as a grant writer for Philabundance, a local non-profit in Philadelphia, PA, she also knew she was much more of an entrepreneur than a ‘nine to fiver.’ She worked on various grants, did consulting work (including work for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital), and was a grant writer for Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, TX.  Just as it didn’t take long for Wynter to find out that she had very little interest in a regular job, she was intensely passionate about flowing in her God-given purpose. That purpose and passion were inextricably tied to her love of writing and family. It is an understatement to say that family was important to Wynter Danielle Pitts. As God would have it, just 9 1/2 months after marriage, Wynter gave birth to their oldest daughter, Alena, in Woodbury, NJ on April 8, 2004.Over the next five years, the Pitts were blessed with three more daughters: Kaitlyn (December 23, 2006) and twins Camryn and Olivia (May 2, 2009), all born in Dallas, TX. Even though Wynter and Jonathan’s world went from two to six in record time, it was a wonderful world surrounded by beautiful, talented, smart girls—each uniquely different in her own right. For a time, Wynter struggled with leaving the professional world to be a full-time mommy, but she surrendered to what she readily called God’s plan shortly before the birth of her second daughter. She embraced her new journey with vigor. What a way to fully embrace her desire to not work a regular job!  Out of her unconditional love for her own girls, God birthed Wynter’s professional calling and life’s work through her ministry, For Girls Like You. The ministry was humbly launched out of her house on a borrowed laptop in 2012 as a quarterly print magazine. For Girls Like You now has several thousand subscribers from every state in the union, as well as readers in Australia, South Africa, England, and various other countries around the world. As Wynter’s magazine grew, God opened other doors. In 2015, she published her first book, For Girls Like You: A Devotional for Tweens. Miraculously, she published seven more books in just three years: You’re God’s Girl: A Devotional for Tweens(2016); You’re God’s Girl Coloring Book (2017); She is Yours: Trusting God as You Raise the Girl He Gave You(2017) with husband Jonathan; God’s Girl Says Yes: What God Can Do When We Follow Him (2018); fictional series Lena in The Spotlight as a co-writer with her daughter Alena Pitts, including Hello Stars(2017); Day Dreams and Movie Screens (2017); and Shining Night (2018). At the time of her death, she was working on two new books scheduled for publication in 2019: Emptied: Experiencing the Fullness of a Poured-Out Marriage and I Am Yours: A Prayer Book for Girls. She was also a passionate public speaker and a wise voice from the stage speaking on topics from motherhood to race; from family to marriage. When Wynter and Jonathan moved to Dallas in 2004, the Pitts family attended Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, where Wynter served in the women’s ministry and began attending the Oaks Church in 2012, where she served in the children’s ministry and most recently co-led the Connections Class. Wynter was a prayer warrior who understood that her strength and success came from the Lord. “Dear God,” she and Jonathan wrote in their 2017 book, She is Yours, “I release my daughter into Your care. I surrender my desire to control her. I surrender my desire to manipulate her future. I surrender my tendency to overprotect, shelter and suffocate her. I surrender my desire to be her best friend, first. I surrender my own dreams for her. I surrender my need to be her source. She is Yours.” On Tuesday, July 24, 2018 in Dallas, Texas, Jonathan and the girls surrendered Wynter to God, the Author and Finisher of their faith. In addition to her husband of more than 15 years and their four girls, Wynter is survived by her mother, Viola Carter (Thomas); her father, Maurice Evans; her brother, Sean Evans (Andrea); her grandmother, Viola Robinson; her grandfather, Arthur S. Evans, Sr.; uncles, Dr. Anthony T. Evans (Lois), Andre Robinson (Shirley), Bernett Robinson (Jocelyn), Stephen Robinson (Barbara); aunts, Beverly Johnson (James); Trina Spencer (Derek); and Annette Evans; her father and mother in law, Garry and Miriam Pitts; her brother in law, Benjamin Pitts (Leslie-Ann); sisters in law, Carmen Pitts, Erin Wang (Andrew) and Leigh-Anna Rubio (Edward); 12 nieces and nephews, and a host of other family and friends. A Visitation for family and friends is scheduled for Saturday, July 28, 2018 at 4PM at the Oaks Fellowship Church located at 777 S. I-35E, Red Oak, Texas 75154. Funeral Service will follow at 5 PM.
