I have been slowly pursuing a greater knowledge of Islam, as I am afraid of the reaction of family and friends. I know this should not be a reason to not devote my life to Allah, but I can't help but feel nervous. As all of my family comes from a Christian background. I don't feel like I'm not giving my heart and soul to Allah, but I also know that I should not be nervous to share my beliefs with friends and family. Has anyone ever felt the same way I do? Please, any advice or guidance would be overly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

If we going to use the hard line approach of old, that is - either this or that style than it would be unworkable in this day of age. But than again you need to know where you stand otherwise it would be difficult to explain to their queries. Knowledge with good deeds is the utmost weapon to create bond, or to strengthen it.
I wish you nothing but the best outcome.
The good deed and the evil deed
are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo!
he, between whom and thee there was enmity (will become) as though he
was a bosom friend. (41:34)

if U give shahadah that Allah is one and prophet Muhammad is his last messenger,there is no need to tell others,its the matter between U and Allah,moreover as U grow ur knowledge of Islam,Allah will help U,as Allah mentions in Surah Al Ankaboot ch 29 v 69-,if U strive in Allah's way Allah will open pathways for U.l know,it is difficult for U at this time,but slowly and steadily make efforts,and read Qur'an,this will increase ur confidence,as rightly said-Qur'an is the only solution to mankind.
