Welcome to JHP Josh (AKA the kid), there are several different timer setups that people on this forum have designed. One of the best things to do is get a timer board or just a chip from Brian joed, hamiltoe or one of the others. These are much better and have more options than just a 555 timer. Run a search on timers and you should come up with something. Good luck.
