For Valentines how about giving each other the Gift of a Great Conversation?  

Note from Bob:  Happy Valentine’s Day!  Husbands, you have no doubt already ordered flowers and made reservations for a special dinner!  Wives, you have no doubt also made special preparations – with great care selected a special Valentine’s card – perhaps have everything ready for a quiet candlelight dinner for just the two of you at home!  What else would make your dinner perfect?  How about giving each other the Gift of a Great Conversation?  

10 Questions for your Valentine’s Dinner: 

Looking Back – Ask each other:

  1. What do you remember from our first date?
  2. How have we grown this past year?
  3. What in our marriage has brought you the most joy this
    past year?
  4. How have we seen God meet our and our Family’s needs
    this past year?
  5. What do I do that makes you feel most loved?

Looking ahead – Ask each other:

  1. What would make our next year together really great for
    you?
  2. What would you like our top priority (priorities) for our
    coming year to be?
  3. What could I do for you to make our coming year the
    best one yet?
  4. What would you like for me to do More of? Less of?
    Continue?
  5. What do we want to ask God to do for us and our family
    this coming year?
