Winter Harris was born and raised in Jonesboro, Arkansas. She is a self-described small town girl with a big city heart. Her parents were ministers of the gospel and eventually started their own church. She was raised alongside her two younger sisters in the church and her passion for helping the body of Christ and community began at a young age. She wore many hats under her parent’s ministry which included Sunday school teacher, youth leader, praise team leader, and choir director. She helped her mom orchestrate many women’s conferences. As a child, Winter was certainly a big ball of fire which contradicted her small stature and often landed her in plenty of trouble. What she lacked in height, she definitely made up for with her mouth. She began singing and leading her church choir at the age of 5.
In 2001, at the age of 19, she married her college sweetheart and began building her family. Her walk with the Lord was defined during this time as her young family walked through several trials and financial difficulty. One of the most trying times in her life was burying her second daughter, Autumn Lynn, who was a stillborn at 8 months of pregnancy. She went on to have two more pregnancy losses in between being blessed with 3 more children.
She caught the attention of many during her 2 week stay in the hospital where she nearly lost her life back in May 2014 by blogging online daily. Even with crippling health issues, she has managed to never skip a beat and continued encouraging others. She possesses tremendous strength and courage, as many would have given up long ago after facing similar situations.
After leaving her 14 year marriage marred with infidelity, subsequently walking through a divorce, she has maintained a smile while being a mom of four, obtaining her MBA, remaining active in her community, running multiple businesses and projects with grace & style.
She is a woman of many talents and has always been known as a fierce fashionista. Her hobbies include writing, cooking, scapbooking, boxing, camping, and singing. She enjoys homemaking and loves providing a great home life for her family. She is known for her creative entrepreneurial and business savvy spirit. Many know that if there is a deal to be made and dollar to be saved, she can do it.
She is always armed with a bright presence, warm smile, and welcoming personality. Winter is a unique soul and seeks to encourage other women to embrace their own unique identity and calling through Christ.
