May He be your Helper and Saviour.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

You may want to watch some Orthodox Divine Liturgies online, so that you get a sense of what the worship is like and also see how people cross themselves (first the forehead, then the middle, then the right chest, then the left).

There are several videos of different Liturgies available here:

God bless you!

P.S. Don't forget about all the resources available on the goarch online chapel, including the texts of Orthodox prayer services, the Scripture readings for the day, sermons, etc.

People tend to skip over this, but there is live broadcasts of the Liturgy from different churches available, and if your lucky sometimes there will be a special service that you can catch on the broadcast (sometimes vespers, or special parklisis if you are lucky.

And don't forget the weekly broadcasts (air and web) from receive.org -Come Receive the Light and, of course, Anciect Faith Radio. Orthotracts.org (member Dismas's site) is very good as well.

Try this link:

http://www.mpa.gr/specials/patriarchate/

it shows liturgies from the Constantinople Patriarchate (church of St. George in Fanari). Unfortuantely for you, its all in greek (and some turkish) but it might be different to see "how it's done" in the old country.
