Valentine’s Idea Starters!

Written by Scott Herrold. Posted in Uncategorized

You might call her her Becky/Kim/Jennifer or Gertrude? Here’s a few things that could be on HER mind in regard to Valentine’s Day.

Click HERE for a HUGE list of Valentine’s idea starters! Think about ways to develop these into stories, bits or on air discussions.


“At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.” -Plato

I hope he got a reservation, cause Valentine’s day/weekend is going to be busy!

Your love language vs her love language (How the way you feel loved is different that the way she feels loved)

“She’s beautiful, and therefore to be wooed; She is woman, and therefore to be won.” – William Shakespeare

I wish we had more options for baby sitters!

I appreciate the gesture, but these conversation harts taste like cardboard. Where’s the chocolate?

How about a day off from all my responsibilities? That would be awesome!

A baby sitter costs more than the actual dinner we’re going to have on our date night!

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” -1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I want my husband/boyfriend to do something romantic. Hopefully his idea of romance is the same as mine.

I can’t remember the last time we had a quiet night without ANY kids.

I love surprises!

Chocolate supersedes any workout regimen or diet I had.

When was the last time be bought me flowers? Does he know my favorite?

Sometimes a card says it all. I love you.

“You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.” –Amy Carmichael

Romance is fun. Mystery is even better.

I love it when he dresses up in a tie.

“There are three things that amaze me—
no, four things that I don’t understand:
how an eagle glides through the sky,
how a snake slithers on a rock,
how a ship navigates the ocean,
how a man loves a woman.” -Proverbs 30:18-19

I can’t believe he actually took the TIME to make me a Valentine card?

Remembering our love story. It started with us, before we became a family.

I love it when my husband puts me before all our “responsibilities.” It’s a nice surprise every once in a while

I want to be beautiful, but I can’t really afford it.

Servant leadership. I feel something special when I see my husband serving.

Relaxation = pampering 🙂

Valentines day is more than cards & candy. It’s a feeling that I’m special.

Sometimes I feel guilty spending the money, but I do love a night out!

God’s love vs romantic love.

Matthew 22:37–39
Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

Remembering our engagement. How he proposed. How I felt.

Us before we had the kids. Who were we?

“When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew”

– Shakespeare

Our relationship together vs our relationship with the kids.

God’s Word and how it fits into the dating & romance plans for our kids.

Our family is a different kind of love.

Love is protection. I protect my kids, the best I can, but ultimately they are in God’s hands.

New marriage, same spouse? (It’s a chapter in Mark Driscoll’s book – Real Marriage.)

I want to encourage my husband to be the spiritual leader of our household. I’m not sure how though.

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1

Peace in our romance. Hope in our journey.

“Her passions are made of nothing but the finest part of pure love.” -Shakespeare

“Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.” – Mark Twain.

“There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.” –Friedrich Nietzsche

I want a love that lasts forever. What do we have to do to break the cycle of just getting by?

I’d love our routine to have a little more surprises. (Maybe a little more romance)

Serving together. How my husband & I can serve together in our church, our community or somewhere locally.

I’d love to bring more “romance” into our marriage.

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” -1 John 4:18

Most romantic thing he’s ever said to me.

What it really is that makes me “feel” loved?

Date night! What that means to me?

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13

Yes I expect him to be home from work on time on Feb 14th 🙂

I can tell if he picked out this card at Hallmark vs at CVS 2 hours before he gave it to me.

Restoring the hope in my marriage. God can restore anything.

“And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” – Colossians 3:14

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” -1 Peter 4:8

“A friend is one who knows who you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still gently allows you to grow. –William Shakespeare

I love it when he “shows” me he loves me.

“Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” -1 John 3:18

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” –Martin Luther King Kr.
