Why? How? Where? When?  As young people these are normal thoughts.

The King James Version authorized by “The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints” has a topical guide to help you locate your subject, and a Bible dictionary to help explain what things mean.  The topical guide has references from all accepted scripture choices.  Try searching the scriptures. I think you will find it helpful and maybe even a mind bending challenge.
