Priscilla Shirer Reflects on Late Cousin Wynter Pitts’ Powerful ‘Spiritual Legacy’ for Her Daughters

Wynter Pitts.

One year after the tragic and sudden death of girls ministry founder Wynter Pitts, her well-known cousin Priscilla Shirer is reflecting on the loss of her close friend and family member as well as the impact she’s having now on young lives, even after her passing.

Wynter was a mother of four young girls, (ages 10, 10, 12, and 15) as well as being an author, speaker and founder of the Christ-centered magazine For Girls Like You. Now her final work has just been published titled I Am Yours: Prayers for God’s Girl.

A Well-Known Christian Family

Wynter, 38, passed away suddenly on July 24, 2018. She was the mother of actress Alena Pitts, who played the role of Danielle Jordan in the hit faith-based film “War Room.” Wynter was the niece of Dr. Tony Evans, the founder and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas. She was married to husband Jonathan Pitts for 15 years. Jonathan serves as the executive pastor at the Church of the City in Franklin, TN.

Shirer, Pitts’ cousin, is a well-known Bible teacher in her own right who just starred in the faith-based hit movie ‘Overcomer.’  She writes about Wynter’s final work in an Instagram post and how it’s intended to teach young girls how to communicate with God on a personal level.

“When my cousin and best friend Wynter (@forgirlslikeyou) passed away last year, she was in the process of completing what would be…her final book. And today, that book releases to the world. I Am Yours is a book of prayers for young girls – to help them learn how to build a conversational life with God. It was my privilege to write the forward to this resource because I know that it will help equip your daughters, granddaughters, nieces, sisters to become mighty prayer warriors.”

“It’s like Wynter left her last will and testament on paper, writing out her spiritual legacy in thoughtful, beautiful prayers for her four beautiful girls….and for yours.”

It was my privilege to write the forward to this resource because I know that it will help equip your daughters, granddaughters, nieces, sisters to become mighty prayer warriors. Seeing one of Wynter’s daughter, Olivia, reading her late-mother’s words in the first copy brings tears to my eyes. It’s like Wynter left her last will and testament on paper, writing out her spiritual legacy in thoughtful, beautiful prayers for her four beautiful girls….and for yours. 💜💜💜💜 Grab a copy for the young lady you love.

This beautiful book, which releases today, resembles the woman who dreamed it up. It’s simple yet elegant. It’s tiny yet power packed. It does its best to balance grace and truth. And it oozes with the confidence & wisdom that only comes from God. Inside its pages are the final words of a woman who knew why she was placed on this earth. Wynter lived content in this life. She carried herself with a peace and calm about the past, present and future. But she had one Holy discontent. God place it inside of her for her daughters. She wanted them to know that the story of God was a bigger story than they ever imagined. She desperately wanted them to discover that His story is the only one worth telling and living into. She wanted them to see the life and Good News of Jesus Christ as one that made a massive difference in her own story and one that would guarantee a different life for them. She wanted them to fully grasp…how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that [they] may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. When she leaned into her purposes on earth by way of that Holy discontent, she was able to compile an arsenal of resources for her girls and yours. She set out on a path to reach her four girls and God would give her countless more spiritual daughters that will forever hear her words reverberating in their head. This book is her final work – her last will and testament as @priscillashirer would dub them. Well done, babe. Well done. It was written for tweens, but it will land softly on the hearts and minds of girls of every age. Link in profile to purchase.
