Dear FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU Readers and Parents,
As some of you know, my wife, Wynter Pitts, founder of FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU magazine, passed away July 24, 2018.
As you can imagine, Wynter’s death has left our family in a state of shock. Our four daughters, Alena, Kaitlyn, Camryn, and Olivia, and I miss our adored mother and beloved wife more than words can describe.
But today I’m writing to let you know that because we love and adore Wynter and her legacy, we will continue publishing this magazine in honor of her memory.
I know without a doubt she would want this. Wynter always wanted her ministry to be bigger than her. Her calling to write, speak, and create wasn’t about her. It never was. It was about God’s work.
Wynter started a magazine simply because she had four girls she wanted to impact. This has always been a heart work for her, and it was a heart work that started with our FOUR girls and then spilled over into a bigger community: FOR Girls Like You.
YOU and your daughters, granddaughters, nieces, little sisters, students and mentees are Wynter’s surrogate Kingdom daughters, and there’s still work that needs to continue. God gave Wynter the vision, but now it will be built through other people.
Our daughters will continue to have a presence in the magazine and through this, they get to do something tangible to keep them connected to their mother. They are the living embodiment of her legacy, and so is every reader who touches FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU magazine.
While our hearts grieve, our spirits soar knowing God has given us a work to do.
Wynter’s cousin, Priscilla Shirer, wrote in her devotional, Awaken: “‘Finishing well’ can sometimes mean not seeing the full end of what you started, but rather stepping away so others can share in the victory of a race well run.” And so it is with FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU. Like David preparing his son Solomon to build the Temple and then stepping aside, Wynter faithfully carried out what God called her to do.
The foundation has been set. This platform is ready. We look forward to partnering with you to build upon it and watch God take it places we’ve never imagined.
