    Heidi, in order to better understand life, its' meaning, where we came from and where are we headed; I would greatly suggest for you to read the book of Genesis and then the book of John. Afterwords, read again the book of Genesis again followed by the book of John.

    Dear Heidi.
    God bless for taking the decision to follow christ. You cannot worship alone all the time, ps 1:1 there is an unrighteous congregation but the are also righteous congregations. The Spirit of God will lead you in giving to the LORD. Pls do not forsake the assembley of believers. It is a requirement.

    Heidi,

    I thought the same way you did until one day my eyes my were opened. I would rather be in church doing what God has commanded of me than sitting at home not being a disciple. I started by listening to the bible with me earphones on while I was relaxing. I found at first I fell asleep then all of a sudden it was like I craved to hear more. I listen to the Bible being narrated a lot now.
