esdLittle old me!

My purpose is summed up in one truth…I was created for God’s glory. My name is Erica Dunomes. I gave my life to Jesus Christ when I was sixteen years old. But because I grew up in a home where we didn’t go to church often, I was not able to learn about having a relationship with the Lord. It wasn’t until I recommitted my life to Jesus Christ in the year 2006 that I began learning about what it means to pursue and have a proper relationship with Him.

In my pursuit, I discovered that prayer is a vital key to having that proper relationship.

The Word of God is full of prayer(s).

“In the Old Testament, it stopped time and made the sun stand still. It won wars and brought fire from heaven. In the New Testament, it worked miracles, opened prison doors and sent angels to the rescue.” ~ Lynne Hammond

Prayer is a devout petition to God; a spiritual communion as in a supplication, thanksgiving, adoration, or confession. Prayer to most believers is viewed as monotonous. The truth is, prayer is our power source. It is a time set apart where we converse with our heavenly Father. Prayer is the greatest resource of the Church.

God is interested in sharing the concerns of His heart and mind with His chosen children. He is also interested in hearing our hearts, our hurts, and our hopes. God has great expectations for women of prayer. He has planned that ordinary women, such as we are, can become mighty in prayer.

Through this site, it is a hope to share a love for prayer while encouraging God’s women everywhere to pray.


A Little More About Me…….

I deem myself to be exactly who God has called me to be. A daughter created for His glory to bring Him glory. Chosen. Set Apart. Appointed. Am I perfect? No. Daily I strive to honor Him. I am a work in progress; a woman with a mission on a journey to Home (Heaven). I am wife to Carlos; mother to a blended family of six living children. I am also the youngest Mi’maw in the world to one amazing little girl named Angela. I am a Licensed Minister of the gospel as well as a Licensed Cosmetologist. I love singing, writing, reading, flowers, fashion, and makeup. I’m a girly girl.  Guess what else………..I am a woman in love with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And I looooove my family.

Another thing I love is to encourage other women. I’m a lover of people God’s people. I have a heart that has been stirred to let girls and women alike know that they have and were created for a PURPOSE. A God……….given…………purpose.

What I hope you will find here at The Watchful Woman:



I hope that you will find something encouraging. Something uplifting. Something that edifies, draws, and compels you to chase after God and discover your God-given purpose; being that woman that you believe God has called you to be.






I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth – everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.

Isaiah 43:6,7
