(Don’t try to wing it guys. A text is NOT the same as a Valentine!)

Love is in the air. Here’s a HUGE list of Valentine’s ideas for your show or voice trax! Think about ways to develop these raw thoughts into stories, bits, questions or on air discussions. – Scott Herrold & Jayar Reeves

As you think about romance, use more verbs. If you want love stories to come alive, frame the characters better. Look at the setting. Make sure your stories frame the motions inside your character’s interaction!

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

What would it take to re-create our very first date? (Think about the setting, the details & the emotions!)

I hope he got a reservation, cause Valentine’s weekend is going to be busy! (Don’t try to wing it guys!)

Your love language vs her love language (The way you feel loved is usually different that the way she feels loved) Here’s a link to the 5 Love Languages test.

“She’s beautiful, and therefore to be wooed; She is woman, and therefore to be won.” – William Shakespeare (Talk about the games you felt like you had to play in order to get her attention!)

I wish we had more options for baby sitters! I don’t even know here to find them anymore! #Help

I appreciate the gesture, but these conversation harts taste like chalk. (Just give me CHOCOLATE!) Angle: Is there a hierarchy of chocolate brands to you? Which brand is at the TOP?

How about a day off from all my responsibilities? That would be awesome for a busy parent! (I can’t even think about romance because I am soo busy!)

A baby sitter costs more than the actual dinner we’re going to have on our date night! (How can I show some love to my kids this week?) What’s the restaurant that is always worth the hassle for you?

The original language of the Bible uses lots of different words for love. We tend to sum it up with one word in English. I love how Paul frames love in his letter to the Corinthians, “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 NIV)

I want my husband/boyfriend to do something romantic. Hopefully his idea of romance is the same as mine! Here’s some fresh ideas like hikes, picnics, cooking classes, a waffle breakfast bar & serving together. Here’s some ideas to make the gift into more of an experience.

I can’t remember the last time we had a quiet night without ANY kids. (How much is that going to cost me?)

I love surprises! When was the last time you surprised her?

A text is NOT the same as a Valentine’s card. Spend the $6 bucks

Chocolate supersedes any workout regimen or diet I had. I’m always in the mood… for chocolate.

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

Sometimes a card says it all. I love you. (Don’t be afraid to Google what to write in a Valentine’s card!) Ideas here!

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? (When was the last time you did something home made?)

Remembering our love story. It started with us, before we became a family. Tell me what it was the blossomed from a simple date?

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. (What make her FEEL special?)

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

God’s love vs romantic love. In Matthew 22:37 Jesus said, ‘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? (How have you noticed your spouse grow and mature since you first started dating?)

When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew” – Shakespeare (Do you believe in love at first sight?)

Our relationship together vs our relationship with the kids. We’re not the same people we were on our wedding day. Yeah. We have matured.

Our family is a different kind of love. 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.” Paul in 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. What if the true purpose of marriage isn’t about making you happy, but making you holy?

I’d love to bring more “romance” into our marriage. New marriage, same spouse!

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

Yes I can tell that you drive through on your way home to pick this gift up! #SorryNotSorry

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 as a middle aged adult vs what it meant to me when I was 24?

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” -Paul in 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.” – Paul in Colossians 3:14

So many concerts coming through town this spring what if you made your gift into an experience? (Quality time)

“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. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.” – Martin Luther King Jr
