Sunday Burquest

Is Grit Girl.

About Sunday

Her tenacity along with her trust in the Lord has empowered her to fight through some of life’s biggest challenges. In April of 2012 Sunday was diagnosed with breast cancer. During the yearlong treatment process, she leaned on her family, friends, and faith. Her determination to win this battle kept her from allowing cancer to have the upper hand.  She was given a clean bill of health the following year.

Shortly after earning the title of breast cancer survivor, Sunday auditioned for and was eventually cast on the Emmy award winning reality TV series, Survivor Millennials Vs Gen-x (2016).  From deaths in the family, her husband’s near-death experience, breast cancer to competing in an intense physical and emotional game for over 30 days, Sunday not only survived, but she discovered her inner-strength, she found her grit.

Sunday graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center in 1991 and returned home to work in full-time ministry. She served in several areas first as a receptionist, she was then quickly promoted to pre-school teacher and volunteer coordinator. In 2001, Sunday and her husband Jeff, accepted the position of Youth Pastors and continued there for 12 years before launching a Young Adult ministry.  She’s traveled to 14 countries speaking and providing supplies for local orphanages. During this same time, she mentored wives and mothers in her small group, in addition to speaking on a regular basis to over 200 women. Sunday has successfully recruited and trained multiple volunteer teams of 100+. Her 25 years of extensive ministry experience enables her to communicate to various groups including women, young adults, and general audiences. Jesus is the power behind her message of hope that leaves others convinced that they too can overcome adversity and discover their grit

In 2017 Sunday spent a weekend in solitude dedicated to seeking the Lord for His direction. It was during this time the Girt Girl message became clear. She returned home from three days in isolation with a plan to reach women with a specific message.  Through her personal experiences, Sunday discovered the power of grit and she is passionate about other women doing the same. Her book, “Grit Girl, Power to Survive Inspired by Grace” leads the listener on a journey to discover their grit.  Through events, speaking, books and social media, Sunday is empowering women to find their God-given strength and purpose, giving them the confidence to actively follow His plan for their lives and influence others for Christ.

Sunday considers her greatest accomplishments her over 25-year marriage to her husband Jeff and raising her four children.  She lives in Otsego, Minnesota and loves thrift shopping, decorating and repurposing furniture.
