Dear MJ (<—sorry if this seems too disrespectful):
Greetings. My name is James Moore. I am a twenty year old college student and fellow Christian. Like you, I have a passion for writing (and I too have a Kindle). So far while following your You Tube, I have learned quite a bit about presence, both on screen and on page. And the replies you left towards the one person on your "Four Elements to a Great Blog" video were quite reasonable and tremendous (I cannot for the life of me recall the You Tuber's name). Anyway, i was wandering what tips might you offer one who wishes to venture into article writing as a way to build up his or her craft in wordsmithing. I appreciate your consideration of my message, and thank you.
PS. Congratulations on your child and husband.
I’ve recently seen some of your “IfixIt” videos and was amazed with the style you disassemble some of the modern technology gears
Easiness, your commentary and general appeal make me a bit jealous 😉 if you do so with your clothes (I have not yet sent any e-mail to your husband to confirm on that one though 😉
I been in the IT field as programmer & system designer for about 20 yrs. I came across your mac fix it for the mac book & loved it! You are gr8t! Sexy & style like wow I am tired of seeing these geek guys doing videos & oh so boring. Seeing a pretty woman doing tech work was refreshing for sure. Take care love your work, keep it up, stay wonderful girl! You are the best, best wishes to you & your family, chow Erica.
Not sure if you’ve already been nominated, but I just nominated your blog for the wordpress 7×7 link award. I enjoy your posts! 🙂 You need to follow up with a post about it. The directions are in my last blog, please check it out. Have a great holiday!
hi melissa i have seen your tutorials on ifixit , you are very good and qualified
ps. compagnucci is your surname? are you italian?
and sorry for my bad english
MJ, as a Christian man, I appreciate your thoughts on these two cultural phenomenons. I’m also thankful for your spirit of love and grace in your responses. May Jesus Christ protect you and your family! Continue to be a light!
Thank you! At first I was upset at how convicted your post made me feel, because I really wanted to see Magic Mike and in fact had plans to see it this weekend with a friend I never see. But as it time passed I felt God easing my mind and tearing down the wall I had put up around my heart. The blinders have been removed, you are absolutely right. It is not fair got me to do something that if a man did I would look at him with a lost respect. Thank you again for obeying what the Lord laid on your heart to do.
A few weeks ago I wanted to plan a night with my BFF to see the movie. I haven’t read the book either and have no interest. My husband heard about it and was extremely upset with me. I tried to defend it by saying it was just a movie and he has seen worse (he used to have a porn problem).
The devil was trying to deter me and almost won. After sleeping on it, I apologized to him and had a good talk. Deep down I knew I was better than that and that movie went against what I believed and the woman I am (the devil was trying hard).
After reading this blog, God convicted me to take a stand against this movie and book. I forwarded the link to my husband who will see in when he gets to work along with this:
Thank you for opening my eyes to see the sin in which I was wanting to partake in! That’s why I am so blessed to have you in my life, to compliment me, remind me who I am and what I stand for, and love me through my stubbornness! You are the most wonderful man I have ever known. It brings tears to my eyes to see the spiritual leader you have become. God heard my prayers when I would lay hands over you while you slept. I never knew I could live out my dreams! Thank you for making them come true!
I love you to the moon and back.
I wanted to write and tell you just what a special blessing this whole article was, to know that there are still some TRUE Christ like people (Christians) out there. I pastor a little country church in Tennessee, I am not very educated so forgive my lack of knowing how to type, but I want to encourage you to keep going, and being a light to our young women and men alike. Titus 2:3-5 KJV
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
I appreciate your obedience to an All Mighty God, and hope and pray that God will bless you in a mighty way for the light and truth you are putting into a dark world, I read your article on Tuesday night and God had me use it in the message I preached on Wednesday night, know that seeing right from wrong is not judging and that as Christians we should all have the same guidlines as to what is right and what is wrong. I liked the comment, when the bride groom comes he would’nt wnat his bride to be taking part in these things. I seen some pretty rough comments, and the big thing that stuck out to me is how some wanted to argue with your post (that was based on the Bible) and they didn’t even know what the Bible says, like the one about how a Pastor is the Bride. The Bride is clearly the church and not just one individual who holds an office. God bless you and keep up the good work!
I just wanted to say, YOU GO! You may be unpopular to the masses but I can really respect your blog. Seeing the previews I just felt guilty about thinking about going to see it as a married woman. I did not go see it and do not intend to. I am glad someone else feels this way. I have not read 5o shades of gray either. Other than hot and heavy I didn’t know what it was about. I like your idea of taking that pent up “sexual energy” and sharing it with your husband or wife in the bedroom! Thanks for having the courage to write this article!
I really like the way you speak things I am a christain, mother and Nana of six wonderful grandchildren and I pray for this world. I just want to say I stand beside you one hundred percent.You go lady someone needs to stand up for CHRISTAINS. God Bless You. Ginger
You are a breath of fresh air! I am so glad I found your site. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Please keep posting!
Good afternoon Melissa. I wanted to comment on your post for a few reasons. First, it is very well written- kudos. I do not disagree with you that films and books such as these may be considered “uncouth” or in bad taste by some- and let’s face it, Magic Mike is just supposed to be an incredibly low quality film as it is. I have no desire to see it only for that reason- and quite frankly I have no desire to see men dancing around at all period. lol All jokes aside though, I may disagree with most of these comments about Shades of Grey. I recently purchased the book due to the discussions that I have been in the presence of about the presence of sexual honesty that the book entails. I recently married a little over a month ago, and I am a Christian. However, I do not find any comfort in the Christian community, nor the church because of this puritanical way of thinking about sexual discussions and honesty with others beyond your husband about sexual issues. I find that if sex is considered a taboo subject, this leads to an incredibly unhealthy situation of people not feeling free to raise issues, ask questions, and find solace in their personal lives. Some women I speak to even say they don’t like sex- and just do it because it’s a part of marriage. If we shy away from the understanding of sex and refuse to open our minds to other forms of intimacy within a monogamous marriage, I find that we may only grow in ignorance and stagnant belief that the “right and true thing” is only to abstain from any discussion, or understanding of sexual issues. Sex is not dirty- sex is GREAT- and as a person who has a history of abuse in their childhood- I know from personal experience that you cannot judge someone for having sadistic or masochistic behaviors in their own bedroom. This may be tied strongly to something they did not ask for, but is ingrained in them. If their lover is understanding and finds beauty in this, and both are satisfied with the situation- how can anyone judge it? Whether it be oral, vaginal or anal sex- or something in between- when practiced in marriage, it is all healthy and I truly believe God smiles on the activities practiced between two people united in His love and grace.
I recently started my own blog about my new life as a married woman and the things that I am passionate about. I do think we stand on different sides of the same team, and I think it would be fascinating, as women and wives, to have an open discussion about these issues.
Just wanted to say thank you for your piece on 50 shades/magic mike. I just blogged about this a few days ago because I’ve seen the double standard and lack of respect for sex/nakedness on Facebook and twitter and sadly heard friends and family chatting about it…
Just finished your “Fifty Shaded of Magic Mike” post. You spoke my heart’s sentiment exactly. I’ve been wanting to address this too, but have shyed away because I have many friends and family members who have watched the movie and read the books. I applaud your bravery and sincerity. Praying for women and that our eyes would be open to God’s beauty and truth rather than what carnal desires lie before us. Looking forward to reading more from you!
Thanks for posting. You expressed what I’ve felt about 50 Shades and Magic Mike. Very well written. Keep speaking the truth in love. We’ve got to stand up and be counted. God bless.
Thank for sharing on Fifty Shades/Magic Mike! It was exactly what I had wanted to say but was “afraid” to. Then our preacher brought the subject up this morning and said that we should not sell out and compromise our faith because we don’t want to make people mad or worry what they will think. I was convicted for not standing up for my God! I immediately thought of your post and after church I reposted it. Thank you again!
I can’t find your comment threads People are talking about the comments left about Magic Mike and I don’t know how to view the comments Please help a technologically challeged person read your blog comments I am leaving this here because it is the only place I can find that I can read the comments
At the bottom of every post, in grey letters (it’s sort of hard to see), should be the word “comment,” and of you click on that, it should reveal all of the comments for the post. I hope that helps!
first of all, great blog and youtube channel! I really enjoy reading your posts, although I may not always agree with you. I appreciate that you are open to discussion and that you encourage your viewers to have a similar attitude. Having said that, it makes me even sadder to notice that I cannot access some of your videos on youtube- instead of your latest vlog I get the info that the video is unavailable in my country (I’m one of your Polish viewers). I’ve tried lots of tricks (i.e.the few that I actually know when it comes to computers), but nothing seems to be working. Is there any way I can keep watching your videos on yt?
You’re one of my favorite people to follow on the web. And a great inspiration. Love all of your content!
