You are feeling inclined to come more into islam because Allah is wanting you to be closer to him. Subhanallah not many have that privelage so all you have to do is make effort and have full hope, trust, faith and reliance in Allah and he will do whatever is best for you in life.
Firstly you you should learn dua Qunut which i have provided for you in the link below called "The Translation of Salaat".
Then from there you should learn from the basics and then build your knowledge and the E book that i have provided for you below called "Islam Beliefs and Teachings" is the perfect way to begin as it covers all the basic beliefs and teachings of Islam and more in a very easy way as the author is brilliant and this is a very popoular book available in the shops but it is free for you to download and print. It also shows you the correct way to pray Salah as well as dua Qunoot etc.
I have also included a brilliant article on how to gain Khushu but know that it is not an overnight process but will take time and the closer you go towards Allah and the less sin you indulge you then the more khushu you will have in prayer.
Another very benefical link i have pasted below is the "daily Ibadah check" which is a new approach to monitoring ones good deeds every single day and then at the end of the day you can write down what ibadah you did the whole day and what you need to improve on for the next day so this way one can continuously better themselves every single day.
I have also included many other beneficial links including the dua for Isthikhara in my thread: "VERY Rewarding Nafl Salaahs we can Pray Everyday!" where you can learn to pray many other nafils too aswell as other threads which show you how we can increase our imaan and which zikr and good deeds we can do everyday to please Allah and get the closest to him.
Also included are links about the hereafter and the life and story of the holy Prophet of Allah Muhammed (Pbuh).
Spend time with your family too as maintaining good relations with ones family is very important and also great reward with the right intention. Islam is about striking a good balance so spend time with your family as well as on your deen.
Let us yearn to get the closest to Allah by pleasing him as much as we can. Always repent as much as you can in every dua for Allah loves those who repent and thank him abundantly for Allah gives more to those who are appreciative and thankful.
I hope inshallah you find these links beneficial. If you need anything else then we are here for you so never hesitate to ask.
