Hi I'm Eliza Stetson

I love new things, playing the piano, and being in the sunlight as much as possible. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Mississippi right on the Gulf Coast. Later on in life I moved to Arkansas with my parents. I'm currently a freshmen at the University of Arkansas but I'll be transferring out to BYU-I this coming September. I plan on majoring in I/O Psychology. The human mind fascinates me and I love marketing so it's the best of both worlds. I'm beyond excited to be going because I've never actually been further west than Oklahoma City. If you're wondering: no, I don't have a southern accent. I love being outdoors. Hiking, canoeing, swimming, you name it. Unless it involves high suspension heights, climbing a ladder to get there, or the blistering cold, I'm probably down for what you've got in mind. Other than that, I was in band in high school so I have an immense love for marching band and music. If I watch a band, I will critique everything to no end and then obsess over the level of the flutes. I love playing the piano, even if half the time I'm just making stuff up as I go along. I love sci-fi and the weird stuff that really makes you think, like magic tricks. I love art and experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a convert to the church as of April 1st, 2015. I'm a Mormon because I have read and prayed and prayed and prayed many times on if the church is true or not. It took me a while, but I finally saw the light. I saw it on my own at my own pace without pressure from anyone else. It may not be able to explain it logically, but I know the blessings in my life that I have experienced over the past year and a half as an investigator of the church has been from the gospel. I'm a Mormon because while everything in modern day is changing around us, whether we like it or not, the church and the scriptures are a pretty solid constant throughout the world and throughout time. If there's anything that I think that I need in my life, it's a good constant that I can always turn to for solace.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by standing by what I know to be true. The Mormon faith has become apart of who I am every day. I don't let my family, as nonmembers, discourage me from my beliefs. I keep my chin up and my heart accepting of others. I keep my standards set high and my morals in check.
