Start by ensuring you have a page you would like as your home page published on your site as well as a page, normally empty, that would be replaced by a list of your most recent posts.

Next, you will want to go under Settings, Reading and change the homepage display settings to a Static page. For the Homepage you would set the page you would want to appear when someone goes directly to your URL. Set the Posts page to where you would like your blog posts to appear there. Not all themes have the same settings so if you do not see this, you would want to check under Appearance, Customize.

With the page changes set, you would want to add them to your menu as they are not automatically added to your menu. Under Appearance, Menus you should see the two pages you set have text next to them noting which one is the posts page and which one is the front page.

Depending on your theme, if you edit the page there is a page template for specifically the home page you can set when editing the page itself. Other themes you would want to take a look under Appearance, Customize for custom settings. If neither of these are options, we would recommend taking a look at Beaver Builder to customize your site’s display.
