When I search for my website, I get a warning that says, Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead, and I am unable to even accept the risk. What's going on?

6.25.19: NAME SERVERS
You tried to secure your site by connecting to Cloudflare. To do so, you need to update your nameservers to Cloudflare nameservers, and delete the ones for Homestead. Both of you added the two nameservers for Cloudflare, but left the 3rd one pointing to Homestead. If you see in the directions, it tells you to delete that 3rd nameserver. Having nameservers point to two different companies can cause issues. I would recommend you delete that third nameserver and finish the rest of the Cloudflare instructions if you haven't already.
