Welcome to the forum, TracyLynn.  There are lots of threads and videos here that can help.  If you have any questions, just post them, someone will get you an answer.  Some state also hold bee classes for beginners, and a local bee club can be a big help also.  Good luck, beeking is addictive.

Welcome to the forum, TracyLynn. Find a local bee club. First question you need to ask, what type of bees are prevalent in your area. I just got back from visiting a good friend in Las Vegas. He had been interested in being a beek. Had a smoker and vail. I only found one beek in the area and he said that almost all the bees were African. There was no way I was going to have him start with bees that would quickly be taken over with African bees. He had a postage stamp size yard with houses on top of each other.
