Hi I'm K. Jacob

I'm an entertainer, a Scottish-landowner, an artist, pretty awesome, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Greetings, the name's Kinville, Kenneth Jacob Kinville, though my friends/acquaintances call me Jacob or Fake Jake. I love to entertain people; whether it's from music (Saxophone and a wee bit of the piano), stories, comics, acting, or just my general personality. Nothing gets me going like getting someone to crack a smile! I worked at Treasure Mountain Scout Camp in Wyoming for four years where I made people smile day in and day out. Fun fact: I own land in Scotland. Funner fact: about eight months after I bought said land I received a mission call to the Scotland and Ireland Mission. God is certainly a God of humour. As part of entertaining folks, I have a passion for art. I love how art can tell a story; either in form of a single picture, to a series, to even a comic or animation. In telling stories or producing art, I mainly use anthropomorphic animals. Foxes are probably my favourite. Now, as can be clearly seen: I'm pretty awesome, #HumbleBrag. I love to study things, learn about things, and then make stories about these things. I love to laugh, listen, talk, and learn. My family stands as my homeslices and some of my best friends. I am Kenneth Jacob Kinville.

Why I am a Mormon

There comes a point in one's life where one must ask the most important question: why. I've asked this question. Yes, I've been a Mormon my whole life, but I've asked this question. Why am I who I am? Why am I doing this? Why not just stop? But, in asking, I asked the Big Man Upstairs. In that moment, I learned an incredible valuable lesson: God answers our prayers and He cares for us. I've helped a lot of people, but I have never really asked for help. In saying that prayer, I asked for help and I got it. It was incredible! But why I'm Mormon? Because of the peace I feel. Whenever I am in Church, I feel peace. In the temple, peace. It's not peace like what the world gives, but a deep-rooted peace. Something I know, from study, that only God gives.

How I live my faith

A faith is to be lived step by step, degree by degree, grace by grace, knowledge by knowledge. I live my faith thusly. In April of 2015, I left my family and friends to serve a mission in Scotland and Ireland. There, I've met many other friends who have influenced me for the better and hopefully I have influenced them for the better as well. I do my best to help others. I live my faith by mourning with those that mourn, comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and being a friend, a real person, someone who is there when you need them to be there. That's how I love to live my faith. I also study. Like said, I love to learn. I seek guidance from those who have gone before, like Dr. Hugh W. Nibley and Bruce R. McConkie, as well as from the Holy Spirit. But Hugh Nibley, great guy! Love him and his stuff. #MightBeObsessed.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

K. Jacob
Heck no! Help everyone. If you see an old lady carrying something, be a gentleman/woman and help her out. Be kind to everyone. Christ helped people regardless of who they were and I believe that everyone should do the same. Show more Show less
