Trouble customizing using a child theme style.css

  • I am very new to WordPress & website development! I am using the theme colorway lite & have created a child theme & style.css with the following code

    `/*
    Theme Name: Colorway Lite Child
    Description: Child theme for the Colorway Lite theme
    Author: Your name here
    Template: colorway
    */

    @import url(“../colorway/style.css”);

    #site-title a {
    color: #009900;
    }`

    This is my website http://photomomentsforlife.com/wordpress

    There are several things I would like to customize in the style sheet. A couple of them would include changing the logo to be aligned to the center of the page & I would like to change the fonts of the Navigation links to match the rest of the site (Handlee) using the Google Font plugin(I have activated & selected every option available to change to the desired font & it still only changed the text on the pages.)

    My question is what are the specific codes that I need to add to the style.css in the child theme? I have tried copying & pasting what I think would be the right lines of code from the parent sheet & changing the alignment from “left” to “center” same with font but I haven’t been able to get a single thing to change on the webpage. I have also cleared my cache. Since I want to change several things within the style sheet would it be best if I copied the entire parent style.css & pasted it into the child style.css? Please remember I am VERY new to this so specific info would be great! Your help would be much appreciated! Thanks 🙂
