Good for you!!
In Florida the age dropped to 18 a year or two ago. Some states are still 21.
You must believe in "a single, ever-living God." Remember that the name of the deity is not important, but for simplicities sake, when you are
asked, it is much easier to just say God, Allah, YHWH or whatever. There are some places where a long explanation as to how you define your God will
just be cumbersome and unnecessary. In Lodge the creator is more commonly referred to as The Grand Architect of the Univerise GAOTU. Don't get to
hung up on the idea that "God" equals a Christian God. It isn't that important. That is just friendly advice to smooth your entry along.
A person does not have to be "invited" or "related" to join Freemasonry. In fact, it is just the opposite. Masons do not recruit. A prospective
member has to approach us first. We will never ask someone to become a Mason, they must ask us. Some states have gotten tight on money and kind of
forgotten that rule, and started to advertise, but the tradition is that we never approach anyone, they approach us.
I suggest googling "Grand Lodge of........" for your state, and you will be able to find the age limit, and you will be able to locate some lodges
