                  Survivor Testimonies

blanche copyWith the support and strength of Phynyx Ministries, I am able to walk in the encouragement of breaking the silence because “there is life after the silence.” In that, I was able to tap deeper and go further into poetry writings by expressing to others that healing and forgiveness will manifest when you open up mouths and share your experience(s).

Phynyx Ministries has provided me a safe place where I could open up and share my story with women who share my same experience. They helped me realize that though my past experiences may have not been normal, they have made me a sound and strong woman who is blessed and loves The Lord–the one who created us in His image.

SILENCE IS NO LONGER AN OPTION: 3 Steps to Breathe Again

  As she reached for the door to enter the apartment building, there he stood with mask over his head and a gun pointed straight at her.  He marched her into the woods.  There he forced her to lay down in the grass and dirt.  With the gun pointed straight at her head, he proceeded to violently take what belonged to her, the most private part of her…. According to rainn.org, every 2 minutes an American is sexually assaulted.  Every 8 minutes, that Survivor is a child.  Meanwhile, only 6 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison.  As a Survivor of sexual assault when I was a child and rape as an adult, I know what it feels like to suffer in silence from the emotional scars left behind from those who hurt me.  I know first had what it feels like to suffer from depression, suicidal thoughts (and attempts), fear, low self-worth—I can go on and on.  I remember feeling like no one understood how I was feeling. Although some tried to be supportive, I felt like they just didn’t get it.  How could they?  After all, I was the one raped not them right?  This is not always the case and if we are being honest here, someone reading this blog right now could be a Survivor of sexual violence still suffering in silence.  Silence is no longer an option; you must break your silence in order to heal.  I have listed 3 steps below to help you break your silence: Pray for assistance and guidance After the second time I was violated at gunpoint in...

3 Reasons Why Sexual Assault Survivors Don’t Tell

  I remember looking in the mirror and thinking, wow girl that mix of cherry and grape Kool-Aid really looks good in my hair this time! How many ladies remember dying your hair with Kool-Aid back in the day? You couldn’t tell me anything. But then the phone rang, and then the doorbell rang and then HE entered my house. I still remember that camouflage army jacket he wore with those black horn-rimmed glasses and those beady little eyes that said so much without him saying a word. Within a matter of minutes, my innocence was taken at the hands of the man my mother was seeing at the time who was attempting to groom me for human sex trafficking. A piece of me died. That 14-year old happy, vibrant, outgoing little girl was left in the basement of my house, left to try and make some sense of what has just happened to her… Fast forward 10 years to that night in November. As I arrived that evening, I was met at the front door of my apartment building by a masked gunman who pointed a pistol at me and demanded my purse. He marched me to a wooded area behind the apartment building, walked around, stood in front of me and put the gun to my forehead. I can still feel the cold steel on my forehead from time to time—when the gun was placed right in the center of my forehead.
