I only use Homestead to register my domain. The one e-mail address that is included does not seem to be working. I've reset the password, and I can log-in, but no mail shows up. I've tested by sending mail to the address from other addresses. I've ignored the problem for some time, but now would like to solve it. I can't think of anything I can do on my end, I've looked in the manage e-mail link -- pretty sparse options. Appreciate any help.

You are not using Homestead nameservers and your records that control where email is sent, does not have Homestead's records. You can go to the namervserver host and update the records so that you can use Homestead mail. The records are in the topic below.

I tried to change the DNS settings at Wordpress. I put 66.96.135.48 in the A area on Wordpress (https://wordpress.com/domains/manage). It didn't sort out the problem and now I'm getting the message when I try to go access my site, "your connection is not private Attackers might be trying to steal your information from stillinthestream.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Learn more
NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID
I've asked for help on Wordpress.
So much I don't know. What did I do wrong? Did it cause this error? What do I do now? 
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

There are quite a few records that need to be added, not just one. Several A records and the MX  record needs to be updated per the linked topic.

Thanks Drew, too complicated for me right now. I guess I will have to look at other options in the long run. Thanks for responding.
