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...




Good morning Beautiful!

The story of Tamar can be found in 2 Samuel 13. Verse 19, is the exemplifies the feelings and actions of a victim. I believe the power of the blood cleanses; washes; FREES and covers. I call on the NAME OF JESUS to cover our sins; our hurts and our pains and his blood that redeems us to his covering and freedom. I call on the NAME OF JESUS to redeem EVERY PERSON sent/coming to Phynyx Ministries. I PRAY THAT THE BLOOD WILL RAIN OVER EVERY PERSON hurt; wounded; living in fear; living in anger and rejection and the under the deceptive lies of the enemy that they know realize that they are NEVER ALONE and that they are  FREE NOW because of the blood of Jesus! FREEDOM is available because of Isaiah 61. WE once were captives to our past and our experiences but God has freed us and continues to free us. So,stand on in the belief that the BLOOD STILL WORKS. In JESUS NAME Amen!

With love,
P. Skyy and K. Boston

Power of God...




The Power of God

It was wrong it was a sin

take the enemy out and let

God in

 You feel disillusioned and I know its hard

but whatever you do don’t blame God

‘cause he’s loving not despicable or mean

only a low life assaults another human being

 That day, weeks, months or years that

you were abused

are past memories

‘cause now you’re being used

 God wants us to let others know

that he labeled us as survivors

cause he loves us so

 We’ve been in the fetal position

for far too long

its time to stand up our legs

are strong

Testimonies are raw and real

prayerfully listeners can begin to heal

for some the journey has just begun

while others sought solace in the begotten son


Never underestimate the power of God

to live without him is just a facade

he’s our comforter and our guiding light

he’s there on dark days and in the still of the night


This is for you SURVIVOR hold your head high

your violator must answer to the top guy

in the interim you continue to tell

of how God gave you peace and took

away your hell!

Reflections from the Phynyx Ministries Kickoff Event...

Phynyx Ministries Kickoff Event!!!
March 10, 2012
This is me delivering my kickoff message about Phynyx Ministries at Empowerment Temple's Sexual Assault Healing Ministry (S.A.H.M.) and telling my sexual assault story from the very depth of my soul to all in attendance!!!


Phynyx Ministries Kickoff Event information table.







And great multitudes followed Him; and He healed them.
Matthew 19:2

He sent his work, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
Psalm 107:20

O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
Psalm 30:2

Hello Beautiful,

To God be the Glory for the wonderful things He has done!  Happy Birthday to Phynyx Ministries!!!  On March 10 2012, I gave birth to Phynyx Ministries which is a faith-based organization that focuses on prevention, support, advocacy, and healing for Survivors of Sexual Assault.  I have been laboring with this God-given vision for 15 years.  Day after day I struggled to be delivered and healed from the wounds left behind by my sexual assault so that I may use this experience to help someone else.

The kickoff event was a huge success!  The outpouring of love and support that I received on this day far exceeded my expectations.  I cried all day long as I was so filled with joy, that I just could not contain myself.  Those who know me well,  can attest to the fact that I have really been carrying this vision in my belly, in my spirit, and in my soul for so long that the tears of joy that were shed on this day were warranted.  I was so overjoyed to see so many people show up to not only support the Phynyx Ministries, but also to learn more and get involved.  To look out into the audience and see so many smiling faces looking back at me, inspired me even more to stay on track and move forward with every aspect of the vision that God has given me.  And I'd like to personally thank everyone who attended and all who helped to make the event as awesome as it was!!!

This may sound a little crazy to you, but I thank God for allowing me to be sexually assaulted because now I understand that I have been chosen by God to carry out this vision.  I have been chosen by
God to help heal hundreds of thousands of Survivors of Sexual Assault.  I have been chosen by God to be a beacon of light to those who feel that they are living in darkness.  I have been chosen by God to be an example of BRAVERY, COURAGE, STRENGTH, AND POWER!!!!  I have been chosen by God to let each and every Survivor that comes to Phynyx Ministries know and understand that THERE IS LIFE AFTER THE SILENCE!!!

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy

Take A Deep Breath...




Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Genesis 2:7

Let everything that has breath  praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.
Psalm 150:6

The spirit of God has made me; the breaths of the Almighty give me life.
Job 33:4

Hello Beautiful!

How was your day?  I pray that the Lord has blessed you in a mighty way.  For He has blessed me tremendously; new mercies I see everyday and for this I give Him praise!

A few days ago, while at work I was having a really tough time. The pressures of starting a new ministry, planning our upcoming kickoff event, holding down a full-time job, all while still being a wife and a mommy were really getting to me.  I felt like I wanted to scream!!! But I didn't, I kept my composure as usual and prayed in my spirit to the Lord for a word from Him; I needed some relief.

As I'm processing one of the hundreds of requests I get per day, an email alert pops up on my computer screen.  I see that it's from one of my Ministry Leaders Kesha Boston who is also a Survivor of Sexual Assault.  Sis. Kesha is not  an ordained minister, but she is an anointed Prayer Warrior and always has a Word from the Lord that comes at the precise time that I need it.  The message below was sent to me on that day, at the perfect time, and it blessed my soul in a mighty way.  I pray that it will do the same for you.

With Love,
Phynyxx Skyy

Each breath is the breath of God relieving the stress and strain. Keep breathing because that means you are still moving through the process. Keep breathing because that means that the enemy of your soul has not won. Keep breathing because that means the God of your salvation is still working. Keep breathing because that means God is still in control of whatever may be plaguing you or causing you discomfort. The attempt on your soul is canceled. The attempt to assassinate your purpose and your walk is null and void. IT WILL NOT PROSPER!!! Keep breathing Keep breathing. Love you.
