My left eyebrow has gone from brown to nearly half white in just under 5 months. Why?

I am a 33 year-old male in relatively good health. I have a full head of brown hair. I noticed a couple of white hairs in my left eyebrow almost 5 months ago and thought nothing of it. In the weeks following (and up until present) I was under an immense amount of stress (birth of first child, promotion at work with much greater responsibility, health concerns, etc.) Now almost half of the eyebrow is as white as the driven snow.
Can I attribute this premature whitening solely to life stress? Also, why is it only affecting one eyebrow and not the hair on my head? And is there a safe and effective way to colour it? It's really starting to bother me and affect my self-confidence.
