The real gospel of Jesus Christ is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and you know it.
I left because I know the church was true? Where does that make sense?

you truly have a testimony in the Churches assistance program... it's good to know that our tithing is going to good use.
one day I may need them again myself. actually when i was 18 i got married (bad bad decision to whom) and the weekend after I went to Church I'm a Mormon... his mother was a Jehovah Witness... WOW... I came home from Church my ex now thankfully threatened to kill me when I told him I wanted to go back home and didn't want to marry me... I was 18 and believed him. Ok back to the story... I came back home from Church... and there were 5 of them in the kitchen... they said sit down in this chair.. it was in a corner... they were all standing up preaching against the Mormon Church and that I needed to be converted to JW.... I said no... my ex husband was deaf... so anything I did I could not have gotten his attention... they gave me a choice what will it be... I said
I am a Mormon and I know the Church is true... I can't turn my back on the Church...(something like that)... they escorted me to the door... my stuff was there... we were down in San Diego... my family in Arkansas. I didn't know what to do. I called the Mormons they had a place for me and my husband by night fall... in the mean time I went to tell my husband what happened get my stuff and say he could come with me...
I called the police they went with me to get my stuff... lol she tore up every stitch of my clothing, and took an ax to my tv and dresser... and whatever else I had was on the lawn torn up... she refused to get my ex husband... but he felt the vibrations of the sirens and came out... she told him he couldn't take his truck unless he stayed... he chose to leave with me... I wish he would have stayed... ok well anyways he wasn't my ex at the time... remember that.
The Church gave me a job at Deseret Industry in the day time and I babysat 11 or 12 kids in the evening and at night time... he didn't work. In fact the 4.5 years I was with him he never had a job... I always supported us. I had no car she sold his truck to one of their friends in Mexico then turned it in to insurance as stolen.... well I made it I used her stroller and would put groceries in the stroller and carry her in my arms pushing the stroller rain or shine. It made no difference to me.
So not long after that a lady who ran an apartment complex was in my ward and got me into an apt... I would have to work 2 full time jobs because he wouldn't work. When we got the apt we had nothing. A church members mother passed away... we had a fully stocked house. What a blessing.
There were 3 months in a row he took every dime in our account I had bills, a baby, went and partied with it and came back empty handed... he would beg to come back I never knew how to say no. Well 3 times the Church paid all my bills and gave us food for the month.
He wouldn't babysit for me (that is what he called it) when I was working... remember now this is the guy that hit me in the tummy when I was 7 months pregnant with my daughter... and pushed me down a flight of stairs when I was pregnant with my son. Wonderful man....(not). They never asked for anything back. I give my tithing freely and I believe in the Church more today than I did yesterday. I left him the first time he his my daughter (she was 2.5 yrs old) IDK why it made a difference when he his her than when he was hitting me... but it did. I am thankful I am a member of such a great existence. I'm sure I would have did or landed somewhere in that situation....
However, that's what the Church does... it helps people either by providing food for ppls tummy, or food for their soul to help them advance in the next life.
From you own account the church didn't do anything any regular job did, and that was to earn money, And I'm sure they let you do it for minimum wage also since you had to work 2 jobs to met your bills. Then they would demand 10% back.

That's not necessary to say that crap.

The purpose of the Church is to help... that's what the Lord tells us to do... he says in the days of Jacob I will pay 10% of everything I have for you have blessed me... you don't pay tithing do you.

You left because you have daddy issues.(authority issues)

You didn't go on your mission because your dad said you had to pay for it.

that is not what i said. i was taking care of myself, my baby, and a husband that wouldn't work.

i had a high school education at the time... that's why i went to school and got my bachelors degree so i could be independent and support my family.

Yes, my dad was an Mormon asshole. I don't go on a mission because I never felt called by God to do so until after I left the church. If God wants you to go on a mission he will provide the means to do so. He doesn't just tell you what to do and then say your on your own to do it. But I left the church because it is crap.

And if you were working two jobs it's because Deseret Industries was paying less than living wages, or you wouldn't have worked the second job. You would have stayed home with your baby. You could have gotten the same deal working at 7-11

it would be better evidence (REAL meaning) if you checked your sources on Joseph Smith's marriage if you looked at the documentation from the history of the Church documentation... not people who play the guess or smear campaign game
