Teresa and Rick Starr

Rick and Teresa love helping families learn how to strengthen their relationships and thrive at life. Studies show that the number one predictor of happiness, mental and physical health, longevity, and success in life is the quality of one’s relationships and the ability to connect well with others. Rick and Teresa are passionate about sharing gospel-centered, research-backed strategies for building successful and meaningful connections. They are Certified Applied Positive Psychology Practitioners, Certified Positive Educators, trained life coaches, mentors, presenters, & People Code Facilitators. They are the founders of Positivity Life, where they host an inspiring blog & podcast. They are also building a new website: FlourishingFamiliesOfFaith.com, where they teach faith-based relationship strategies and thriving skills for families. Rick and Teresa have been married for over 35 years. They have fond memories of homeschooling their five kids (who are now all grown and successfully launched into life). Teresa holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. Rick’s degree is in geography and audio/visual production. He uses skills from both fields of study as a language producer for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Starrs’ hobbies are music, running, studying, and building courses in relationship strategies and thriving skills. Teresa has also created a phonics-based, multi-sensory, early literacy program called FUNetic Farm. Their favorite passtime is spending time with their family. Rick currently serves in the stake presidency and Teresa serves as a Sunday School teacher.
