I have a special treat this Valentine’s Day week, a conversation about love with my husband Jeff, AND a bonus! After our conversation we will be talking about Valentine’s Day and sharing some pretty awesome ideas of how to make it special.

Are you ready to celebrate love this week with your spouse? As Valentine’s Day approaches, I find myself reflecting on the evolving nature of our celebrations over the years. From creatively elaborate gestures to simpler yet meaningful moments, the essence of love remains at the core.

In this week’s episode of AwakenYou in Your Marriage podcast, Ep 157: “Intimate & Honest Conversations with my Husband: Love & Valentine’s Day,” we delve into the essence of love within the context of marriage and Valentine’s Day celebrations.

Here are some highlights from the episode:

  • Exploring the concept of love in marriage: Often, we profess love to our spouses, yet we may not fully understand what love truly means within the context of our relationships.
  • Reflecting on past perceptions of love: Jeff and I share our perspectives on what we thought love should look like in marriage and how those perceptions have evolved over time.
  • Drawing inspiration from 1 Corinthians 13: We discuss the biblical perspective on love and how it translates into practical actions within our marriage.

Advice for couples: For those who feel disconnected or have stopped expressing love to each other, we offer practical advice and insights to reignite the flame of intimacy.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, I encourage you to engage in heartfelt conversations with your spouse about what love means to both of you. Whether it’s a simple gesture or an elaborate expression, let your actions be a reflection of the love you share.

To husbands: Consider the unique desires and preferences of your wives, and make intentional efforts to celebrate them in ways that resonate with their hearts.

To wives: Communicate your desires openly and embrace the love and thoughtfulness your husbands extend to you, even in the simplest gestures.

Remember, love is not merely a sentiment but an action that fosters deeper connection and intimacy within your marriage.

Wishing you and your spouse a Valentine’s Day filled with love, joy, and meaningful connection.
