What’s the most effective way to leave the Mormon church without an empty feeling/void in your life?

What’s the most effective way to leave the Mormon church without an empty feeling/void in your life?
To those Latter-Day Saints who see this: yes I know the church’s name is not “the Mormon Church” and I won’t use that term in my description. I had to use a short name because questions on here are limited to a certain amount of characters.

Now then, to the details: I have a friend who was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and finds herself completely lost in it. She never had God near witness to her of its truth, and so has confirmed that it is not true. She has been a member for two decades and still hasn’t felt this witness from God.

She also doesn’t fit in with the other Latter-Day Saints because she says most of them like to talk about “worldly things” and have “small talk” as opposed to deep and meaningful conversations which is what she enjoys and is all she is good with. She can’t do small talk and so appears very anti-social to the other LDS and they tend to ignore her. This ignoring causes her to have very low self-esteem even when I try my best to comfort her. I feel so bad for her because I know it must be tough.

So since she is being both ignored by God and by the people in the church she feels that she needs to leave it since it only drags her down. The problem is though she feels empty when she does leave. She feels like she needs to be involved in something church-like. She feels as empty without the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as she does with it. So even though I told her she needed to leave it, she still says she feels empty. I’ve suggested to her to try other churches that she feels good in but she is just too depressed now to do it.

So my question is, what do you think I ought to do for her at this point? I still try to be as good of a friend as I can be for her but it only helps a little for her for some reason.

Note: I promise that I’m not trying to trash the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I highly respect it because it does a lot of good in the world with Mormon Helping Hands and other humanitarian efforts made by members themselves. All I suggest is that it may not be for everyone, and it’s definitely not for my friend. She did love giving service, but she hated that she never had a witness from God and was treated as an alien from the other members because she doesn’t talk like they do. I do apologize to any LDS in advance if anything here does offend you. The last thing I want to do is offend anyone.
Where it says “she never had god near witness to her” near should be bare. There might be a few other typos since I’m typing this from a mobile device with auto correct and I type fairly fast. It only sometimes autocorrects it to the correct word too.
@old timer too
I must have forgot to mention that she has prayed, though I’m unsure if she has done so directly after finishing the Book of Mormon. If I recall correctly, your church says that you need to read the scriptures or perform some action before receiving a witness? I will ask her if she has done that. Even though I don’t believe in God, I don’t see any reason not to encourage someone to do so if it makes them happy. I would rather see her happy than for her to have my same view on god, so I’ll challenge her to do what you said. I think it’s more likely she will be happy if she gets a feeling of witness and believe her current church is true than have her try to find a new one. Thank you for the reccomendation.
There is a lot of good advice from all of you. Thanks for all the good answers. Since I decided I’m taking advice from several of the answerers(I think that doing several of the things suggested would be best for her) I can’t simply choose one best answer so I’m going to put up for voting.

My final decision is that I will encourage her to stay in the church, since it would be too hard on her to leave, but also encourage her to try to do things that are supposed to evoke the spiritual feeling. She’s planning on moving soon so perhaps the people in the new ward will be different. I’ve also considered going to church with her, however I could never bring myself to believe in these things. I just care about her enough that if no one else in her ward is going to talk to her, she needs someone, so I feel she needs that support. I just can’t stand seeing her so depressed… So I’ll tell her to do those things and that I’ll start going with her to church, at l
east until she makes a new friend. I may also suggest she think about doing that bible study group one of the Bible Student answerers suggested.

Again, thanks to all! You all helped a lot

The problem is, she’s not asking. She has a problem, tells you about this,
but isn’t ready to do anything about it at all. And it will get her down, but
it will also frustrate you, too, won’t it?

You are a friend, and a friend can’t do a think unless the person is ready to
do something. If you believe in God, you can pray for and with her.
If she believes in God, she MUST pray about this.

If she does not believe in God at all, then she needs to tell the Mormons,
that she doesn’t have any faith that there is a God, and must discontinue.

If she feels she WOULD believe in God, but not with the Mormons, then
I would find out interesting churches in that area that have good things
going on (check online) and invite her, drive her over and back, go for
coffee, have a time out that way.

She’s not changing churches that way.

These churches LDS, JW are easy to get in, hard to get out.
That to me makes them not OK at all.

This is part of what she is feeling, so this is a spiritual attack on her.
I understand entirely about hating ‘small talk’ and wanting good
conversation. It’s hard to find.

Would a jew give up his/her life to save messianic jews if they were being tortured and killed?

Would a jew give up his/her life to save messianic jews if they were being tortured and killed?
I know how some people like to state messianic Jews aren’t Jews but lets try very hard to focus on answering my question. okay, thank you.

Now this is purely a what if question. and on the assumption of giving up your life meant they’d be saved.

Christians, how have you objectively determined that certain events in your life were influenced by Jesus?

Christians, how have you objectively determined that certain events in your life were influenced by Jesus?
Posted a few minutes ago, as evidence for Christianity:

“We know because He reveals it to us in very real, tangible ways. I don’t believe in Jesus just for the heck of it, I actually see the fruit in my life. He is as real as anything else in my life”

Can you give an example of such “fruit”, and how you have objectively determined the cause?

Answer by Varginniblodh
Are you implying that argument without objective proof is any less true? You obviously trust your senses too much.
