For Girls Like You with the Pitt Girls
What do you get when you interview three very sweet girls, who are excited to go to a sleepover, on a Friday afternoon? You get a very short and very endearing podcast!
I was honored to interview the Pitt girls — the youngest daughters of my friend Wynter Pitts, talking about their book series, “The Daniel Sisters.” These books are for girls ages 8-12, and the books are as delightful as the young authors.
My friend Wynter passed away two years ago, and this book series reflects some of the challenges that the Pitt girls have faced after their mom’s passing, including moving to a new state, starting a new school, and trying to discover their own unique talents while also seeking God to help them with their loss.
The girls’ dad, Jonathan Pitts, joined us for the conversation. I think you’ll be delighted as you listen!
Who are the Pitt Girls?
Kaitlyn, Camryn, and Olivia Pitts are young collaborating authors from a ministry family of authors. They are the sisters of actress, author and vocalist, Alena Pitts, and daughters of the late author and founder of For Girls Like You magazine, Wynter Pitts. They each have their own creative energy, spunk, and talents that they use together to entertain, inspire, and engage young girls, just like them. Each of the sisters lend their voice and talents to the family ministry as executive producers of For Girls Like You magazine. Most recently, their lives have inspired the story and books in The Daniels Sisters series, with each of their personalities being captured for the characters of Ansley, Ashton, and Amber, respectively. They live with their dad, pastor, author, and speaker, Jonathan Pitts in Franklin, TN.

About the Book:
From Book 1:
From the family that brought you the Lena in the Spotlight series and the popular For Girls Like You magazine comes the story of three young sisters who rebuild their lives and find joy in unexpected ways after their mother’s death.
Ansley and her family move to a new city to seek a new start after the death of their mother. But that also means … a new school, new friends, new everything! Fortunately, even though no one could ever take the place of their mom, Aunt Samantha has moved in to help Dad and all the girls.
As they all settle into their “new normal,” Lena finds comfort in singing and songwriting. Ashton and Amber record videos documenting their lives and email them to their grandmothers. And Ansley pursues her own dream of becoming an Olympic gymnastics champ when she signs up with Grace and Power Gym. But she soon realizes that using her creativity to bake treats and share them with those she loves brings her as much (or even more) joy—especially since it brings back memories of precious afternoons she spent in the kitchen with her mom.
So which dream should she follow? Ansley prays for guidance, and it seems her prayers are answered when she gets the opportunity to both perform as a gymnast and take part in The Big Bake-Off at the Roland Lake Founders Day Fair. The Grand Prize is a trophy and a spot on the local morning show, Awake with The Lake!
But her dreams of taking home the trophy and being on TV are threatened by her strongest competition: Taylor, a mean girl from her new school who not only teases Ansley and rejects her offers of friendship but comes from a family of professional bakers.
Still, with the loving and prayerful support of her own family behind her, Ansley knows she has a real shot at winning. But with Taylor in the mix, will Ansley be able to rise to the occasion? Or will she just get burned?
Walk It Out Scripture
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 NIV
