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

Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth"; and it was so.
Genesis 1:11

And God said, "See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seek' to you it shall be for food,
Genesis 1:29

I made myself gardens and orchards, and I planted all kinds of fruit trees in them.

Hello Beautiful,

On Saturday June 9, 2012, I had he extreme pleasure of partnering with Valerie Robinson of Cor-Les Consultants as she and her team conducted a workshop for Seniors in our community that teaches them healthy eating habits.  Cor-Les Consultants is a health education and promotion company who's mission is to reduce health disparities and high risk living within forgotten communities and promote wellness and conscientious (right) living through education and spirituality.

The workshop consisted of various segments taught by Valerie Robinson or Doc V. and she is also lovingly known as along with very dedicated and highly motivated team of seasoned professionals who have a minimum of twenty years of experience in their specific areas of expertise. Doc V. is very meticulous in preparing the foods that will be eaten at the workshops and prays over each and every morsel.  She is also very careful to listen to God as He speaks to her, leading and guiding her hands as she places each piece of fruit, veggie, and nut in the place where God says it should go as you can see from the photos below. 

Doc V. placed 2 bottles of water (one ice cold and one room temperature), sandwich bags and napkins at each place setting of each table.  The first exercise of the workshop was to take a moment to drink the room temperature bottle of water to hydrate our bodies.  She asked us to save the cold bottle to drink a little later.  I learned that room temperature water hydrates the body and ice cold water burns calories.  Ah ha, see I didn't know that; they say you learn something new everyday and I definitely did with that exercise.  A few moments after that, Doc V. asked us to take the small sandwich bag over to the snack table and grab a snack.  More than half of the guests filled their bags to capacity, which indicates that those guests have a problem with portion control.  But of course she gave many tips to combat that issue as well as others.  Some of those tips include, sprinkling cinnamon on a banana (which is very tasty might I add) prior to eating it as cinnamon helps with inflammation of the joints.  Also, if you've had a very stressful day, you can grab a bag of pistachios and some cucumber water (water in a container with a few cucumber slices in it) sit down, break open the pistachio's one by one, following this process will definitely help you calm down and de-stress.

I was also given the opportunity to share a little about Phynyx Ministries and what we do with the guests. Everyone was very receptive to the information I shared.  I thank God for every opportunity He gives me to share information about Phynyx Ministries with the community because I never know who may need it.  The Cor-Les event was an awesome experience that definitely benefits Seniors in our community and I am looking forward to our next collaboration!!! 

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy

Collaboration: Phynyx Ministries and Till Death Info

Phynyxx Skyy and Kil889 of Till Death Info & Will Make Beats
talk about Phynyx Ministries and what we do.

May the 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

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassion never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:21-23

God, who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ and Lord, is faithful.
1 Corinthians 1:9

Hello Beautiful,

Okay so, I know it's been a while since I've blogged and I must admit, I miss you all too!  I have participated in so many events within the last few weeks.  One of those events was the live taping of "It's On with John Holmes" which is a cable access T.V. show.  The show focused on Sexual Abuse and how Phynyx Ministries is working to bring awareness to this issue and help Survivors go from crisis to confidence.  The show should air in the next week or so, but stay tuned for exact dates and show times as I will post the info ASAP.  Filming the show was an amazing experience as I had never done anything like that before. Thanks to John Holmes for allowing Phynyx Ministries to be seen and heard.  Shout out to my team members for sharing their stories in hopes of helping other Survivors transition toward healing. 

I also recorded the video that you see above with writer, producer, upstart director, and photographer Kil889 of Will Make Beats for Food and Til Death Do Us Part.  Will Make Beats is his website that focuses on the producer and Hip-Hop Head that he is while Til Death tackles love, marriage and relationship issues.  Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Roz is the co-host of Til Death and also sits on the Advisory Board of Phynyx Ministries.  Making the video was a great experience as well because I learned that it's not that hard and I can actually do this.  Well...I've been in a struggle trying to decide when and how to do my video series for the Ministry, but after shooting this one with Kil I now know that it's a piece of cake and I CAN DO IT!  So be on the look out for the Phynyx Ministries video series on overcoming sexual abuse - Praise God!!! 

On another note, the Phynyx Ministries at Empowerment Temple's S.A.H.M. (Sexual Assault Healing Ministry) Support Group meetings are coming to a close for the summer and will resume in September 2012.  The last two meetings are:

 Closing Quote: You can break down a woman temporarily but a Real Woman will always pick up the pieces, rebuild herself & come back stronger than ever.  REBUILD YOURSELF!!!
