Welcome to Phynyx Ministries!

Hello Beautiful Survivor!

Welcome to Phynyx Ministries, a place where you can obtain lots of helpful information to help you break your silence and begin to heal from being sexually assaulted. If you are not a Sexual Assault Survivor, perhaps you know someone who is. Please feel free to share this website with that person. This website is also a place where Survivor's can share their story, a poem, or words of encouragement with a survivor or anyone who chooses to visit our site.

I praise God for allowing me to survive being sexually assaulted because I now know what my purpose in this life is - and that is to be an example to those survivors who may feel that they can't move forward with their lives in a positive way. There was a time in my life when I thought that I'd never leave the confines of my mother's bedroom which was where I retreated after the attack. But I continued to pray to God for strength, peace, and sanity. I sought professional treatment and had an awesome support system.

It's been 15 years since that cold November night, but today I am happily married, have two beautiful daughters, and living life to the fullest. The road to recovery is not easy, but I made it and you can as well. Don't get me wrong, I still have flashbacks from time to time, but I've learned not to let them consume me. I know who I am and what I'm worth...I'm worth more than my attacker thought I was and like the Phoenix, I will continue to rise.

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy

A little morning inspiration...

Hello Hopeful Survivor!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with His is full redemption.
Psalm 130:7

No matter what you've been through or are going through as we speak; there's always hope and there's always the Lord.  Trust in the Lord and He will see you through any situation; I'm a witness that He will.  Expect great things to happen in your life today and everyday because they can.

With Love,
Phynyxx Skyy

Be Encouraged Today...

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

Hello Courageous Survivor!

So many times in the past few weeks I had come home to hear a message of encouragement on my answering maching:  "Thinking of you;" "I love you." Day after day, when hysteria and raw emotions were my constant companions I found the incredible support and concern of friends every time I needed someone.

Encouragement has never filled a flat tire.  Encourangement has never made a car payment, nor fixed a broken washing machine.  But encouragement from another gives us the strength to do what we feel we cannot do, hold on when we feel we cannot hold on, and try what we might not dare to try.

Encouragement.  Doesn't sound like much, but it's everything.  I challlenge you to send someone a word or gesture of encouragement today.  You'll be part of someone's memories for a long, long, time.
