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

Hello Beautiful!

I am super excited to share with you that we will begin our 4th, yes 4th session of the Phynyx Ministries at Empowerment Temple's Sexual Assault Healing Ministry - To God Be the Glory!!!  For those who are not familiar E.T. S.A.H.M., we are group of STRONG women survivors of sexual violence, who meet every other Wednesday at the Empowerment Temple A.M.E. Church where our Phenomenal Pastor is none other than Rev. Dr. Jamal Harrison-Bryant!!!  We also conduct the Phynyx Prayer Call at 8:00pm on the alternate Wednesday that we do not meet at the church.

Sexual Assault is defined as contact of a sexual nature, including but not limited to intercourse, perpetrated using force or the threat of force or when the victim is incapable of giving consent.

Ladies, it does not matter if you were molested as a child, raped last year or touched inappropriately yesterday, we support and welcome you with open arms to attend our meetings.  You are not required to share your experience, but most women are comfortable enough to do so.  As members share their stories, you will quickly realize that you are not alone and that quite a few of our stories are similar. 

Here is the structure of the Meeting:

  • Open with Prayer, Praise and Worship
  • Welcome and announcements
  • Mini-Bible Study
  • Group Session with Clinical Counselor
  • Wrap up
  • Closing Prayer
  • Dismissal
Strong women don't play victim...WE ARE SURVIVORS.  We don't make ourselves look pitiful and we don't point fingers.  We STAND and we DEAL.

Please share this information with every woman you know, she just might be a Survivor who is on the edge of a BREAKDOWN but you can help her receive her BREAKTHROUGH just by sharing this info.  Thank you in advance for spreading the word!

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy
