Since the evidence you seek will lead in your mind to the conclusion that:
1. I sinned my way out of the LDS churhc
2. I was offended by someone
3. I was lazy
4. I never really had a testimony.
As for what I heard, false teachings reinforced by conditional friendship and love. Guilt heaped up higher and higher. And as for any bible reading, church attendance and other temporal requirements, any lacks therein are between me and the Lord. My Pastor does not track my attendance at church, what I volunteer for at church, how much I give in the offering and what I do in my daily life outside church. Frankly, he is putting his family first and Boundaries (book that explains what Boundaries are and why they are so very critical) are respected. It is nice being treated as an adult. I pray Rest you can find a real relationship with the Lord.

Thank you for answering CA!
My questioning was not to judge you. I have no Idea if you attened a ward or a branch? The purpose for the question is that these things really have nothing to do with physical, or to form an mundane opinion.
It is to help one see how much one has in their spiritual bank account. For this is the fuel that enable one to endur trails and not fall away!
It is something that has to be continually nurtured so one is protected. It is very easy for the oposition to distract and lead one way.
