You seem to have posted in another thread as well. I have replied you there too.
when I load widgets in the left and right side bars they all show up in the footer.
Are you using it on your mobile phone/ipad or on screen under 1060px?
Willingness theme is responsive. Which means that it adapts the screen condition. The sidebars were designed to show up at the bottom of the page if the screen is under 1060px.
Any chance you could send me your website URL?
I would also like to only have the most recent article show instead of all of the published articles.
Go to your Dashboard:
and then, Settings -> Reading
Change blog pages show at most to number of recent articles you want to show on your blog.
