More About Sunday Burquest

Sunday is GRIT GIRL.

She is on a mission to help women discover their identity in Christ and God-given purpose. Her message empowers women of all ages to depend completely on God’s strength, giving them the confidence to use their voices as an influence for Him in their communities.

Grit Girl exists to:

  1. Empower women with Godly strength and confidence.
  2. Equip women to discover their purpose.
  3. Encourage women to use their voice.
  4. Embrace women with God's love so they can embrace one another.

Sunday's message of empowerment is in stark contrast to the world's message of self-reliance. Grit Girl offers hope to women as they discover they're not required to depend solely on themselves, rather have been empowered with God's strength in order to serve others.  With the world's attention on women’s rights, a Biblical world-view is imperative in order for them to fulfill God-given roles in their homes, churches, and communities. Ultimately God is looking for women who are passionate about embracing the world with His love.

Grit Girl is passionate about reaching women of all ages, especially on our college campuses.  As a former young adult pastor, mother of college students and years of experience working with millennials Sunday is determined to empower students to reach other young women with God’s love by providing them the tools and support necessary to facilitate campus Bible studies

Sunday's personal journey to finding her grit was years in the making. As she authentically shares her story, she inspires audiences to find their own grit. Her message is clear, her grit comes directly from her relationship with Jesus and as she shares her story she leads women onto their own path to finding their grit in Him.

In her new book, "GRIT GIRL Power to Survive, Inspired by Grace" she openly shares her darkest moments, knowing it will allow others to relate to her stories, but also discover their own grit.

April 2012, her life changed forever when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. During the long treatment process, Sunday remained strong, clinging to her faith and eventually achieving the title of Breast Cancer SurvivorThis gave her the boldness and courage to follow a God-given dream to compete on the Emmy award-winning reality television series, Survivor. After a long casting process, she was chosen to participate in the 33rd season, Millennials vs Gen-X. Sunday draws on her personal experience and over 25 years of ministry in order to inspire others to discover their grit, she truly believes that every woman at their core is a Grit Girl.

Read about Sunday's Survivor Experience in People Magazine: Survivor's Sunday Burquest on Competing after Breast Cancer

What others are saying: “I think that most women, myself included, aren’t interested in hearing about one more thing we should be doing! Most of us are already a little stressed out, feeling guilty, and overwhelmed by all the hats we try to wear at work, at home, and in all the different relationships we have in our lives. So when someone like Sunday Burquest speaks to women about her real-life experiences… and she tells her story with such candor, transparency, and a dose of humor, it fills them with just the kind of encouragement they so often need!  She’s spoken for me at a number of women’s events and groups. And we’ve all left having shared both some tears and laughs, and more ready to head back out into our lives, feeling a little braver!” 

-Renee Burt Small Group Pastor Living Word Christian Center Brooklyn Park, MN

“Sunday is a wife of 24 years, mom to 4 high school and college-age children who is passionate about speaking into the lives of other women.  Her powerful story and overall life experiences make Sunday relatable to anyone facing negative circumstances, and her inspirational messages leave listeners with hope and practical advice for overcoming life’s bigger challenges and everyday struggles, and how to find joy along the way.”  

-Sandy Thoma Leader of MCA MOM’s Maranatha Chrisitan Academy.

Jodi Rouch Director Women's Ministries

Sunday Burquest did an outstanding job speaking at our Sisterhood event. Her experience as a cast member on the reality TV show Survivor was a draw for new guests as well as regular attenders. With over 700 women in attendance, Sunday demonstrated an ability to speak to a broad audience. She delivered with confidence. Her message was relevant to women from all walks of life. I would definitely recommend Sunday for women’s ministry.

Stephanie Shouse- Pastor's Wife

Sunday was a joy to work with! She traveled to our Women's Conference the day before the event and jumped right in, chatting with our volunteers, offering to help and being flexible during our busy day of preparations. On the day of the conference she was on time, friendly and confident. I loved how she mingled with the women in attendance and didn't require a lot of "maintenance" during the times where she wasn't speaking. The best thing, though, was her message. She gave a heartfelt, personal message that drove home some good spiritual truths and really connected with our women. She was mindful of our time frame and respectful of our church culture and all while making the day a memorable one. I'm thankful that our first "celebrity" speaker was truly a down-to-earth woman of God.

Sunday’s humor and inspiration are captivating! She is well spoken, witty, and motivational. She uses her life experiences and family stories to leave her audience wanting more. She’ll have you in tears one moment and laughing so hard the next. I give Sunday five stars and more!!
