Jonathan Pitts never imagined he would become one of the leading voices on stewarding your family through loss, but that’s exactly what God called him into on July 24th, 2018 when his life changed forever with the sudden loss of his first wife, Wynter—Pastor Tony Evans’ niece. On this week’s episode of Unapologetic, Julia invites Jonathan to share his story of leading four young girls through the loss of their mom—creating a legacy of hope amidst heartbreak in the process.
Together the two talk about how to grieve well while still holding on to the hope of eternity, what balancing loss and celebration has looked like for Jonathan and his newly blended family, and why ministering to tween and teen girls is so vital given the culture they’re growing up in. This episode is an honest conversation between two people who have each faced unexpected losses in their lives. No matter if you’re walking through grief now or have in the past, this conversation will undoubtedly minister to you right where you’re at.
Jonathan’s memoir My Wynter Season is available now. You can also connect with him on Instagram or through For Girls Like You Ministries.
