GET TO KNOW KIRSTEN
Kirsten Dunn is a successful master optician and real estate investor that refuses to allow her life’s experiences to define her. This single mother of three has overcome more than any one person should have.
Entering into life on her own, Kirsten went to college and found herself in a toxic relationship that introduced her to the other side of the law. After years of being tied up in illegal activity, having her first born son, and graduating with her bachelor’s degree, life caught up to her. Kirsten was incarcerated, spending the first five years of her sons life in recidivism. Reaching a breaking point upon her release from prison five years later and determined to do the Lord’s work, Kirsten immediately found a home at church and began living out her purpose.
Today, Kirsten uses her pain to give her a purpose to influence. By investing in real estate, Kirsten is able to help families by providing quality foster care and also shares her love of eyewear by donating glasses to children in need. Kirsten feels in the center core of her purpose participating in the many speaking engagements, uplifting women and training men and women how to become Kingdom Minded Socialprenuers. Kirsten invests a ample amount of time in giving back to children in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Kirsten also visits prisons to testify how life beyond bars can exist without recidivism.
Kirsten has been a featured speaker at Social Enterprise, Women in Business, Kingdom Strategist and Prison Ministry Conferences. Kirsten’s topics typically include:

Kirsten is a single mother of three son’s, Jayden 16, Issac Junior 8, and Joshua 6. Currently residing in Southlake Texas, she is an established business woman and home-schools her boys.
Kirsten has two older sisters by birth, Candice and Crystal. Kirsten says, “Candice is my diva trainer, and Crystal is my best friend”. She is also close to her two beautiful nieces, Savanna, 18, and Sheridan, 11. Kirsten is surrounded by many of her aunts, cousins and friends. Throughout life, it has been proven that the family she was born into or adopted by is not her core family. She has learned that family is who God chooses for you despite who your blood family is.
Kirsten aspires to one day be married again and believes that it is possible to have a love life after divorce. She is already a wife, just waiting on her husband to find her.
Kirsten’s spiritual life is a critical part of who she is and the work she does. She currently attends the Potter’s House of Dallas Church. “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” – Psalms 37:4
Kirsten believes she is a spirit; she just lives in a body. Today, Kirsten strives to live her life allowing her spirit to lead.
“I am so far from perfect. I still struggle to check my attitude and truly trust God in all I do. However, I know I am winning the battle overall when, despite if I am up or down, all I want to do is spend time with God. I crave my time with Him. God is truly the best friend of all friends. I am a firm believer that perfection is fictitious but consistency is everything. It’s scriptural that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. I am a diligent seeker of God. I am a woman who realizes I can’t do this thing called life without the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as my guide.”
