Honoring our friend, Sunday Burquest - Survivor contestant (Millennials vs GenX)


I was blessed to have known Sunday and her family since I was 14 years old, and she was my (like) daughter's youth pastor for many years, so when Sunday was asked by a fellow Survivor contestant to appear in a Survivor calendar, she called me. She wanted the photographs to be tasteful and classy, and knew that she could trust our company, Crowning Images (by Sugar and Spice Photography) to make sure the vision she wanted to achieve was met.

I remember how thrilled our team was when I announced that Sunday would be coming in for a photo shoot. We had a couple "super fans" among our team that pretended to be all "cool", but completely lost it when they met Sunday. We all were beyond excited to share experience this with her.

We had WAY to many outfits to choose from, but we somehow narrowed it down to a few of each of our favorites. She happily complied to our every wish and whim: "Climb over that branch in your bare feet", or "Step into the cold water." Other than getting a fab calendar shot, the only thing she requested was a few shots with her Survivor bandana. We were happy to oblige.

So fun to read her cast profile for Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X and remember how, despite being exhausted from a full day of shooting, stood for an hour, answering our team's ump-teen questions about her time on Survivor. She jokingly said: "My family's sick of hearing about it, so I'm happy to talk to you!"

You can see her sparkle and her love for Jesus and people just by visiting her Instagram or Facebook pages. And pick up her amazing book: Grit Girl: Power to Survive Inspired by Grace on Amazon. She is deeply missed, but we know we get to see her again soon. We are confident that if she could pass along one thing to you right now, it would be that Jesus loves you, and that in Him, there's more joy, peace and hope than you can possibly imagine.
