Welcome!

One Step Woman is a gathering place to share ideas to create YOUR best life!

I live in Northern Arizona with my husband, Wayne. We purchased a NEW farmhouse and spend our time starting a family farm.

I share DIY, recipes, and life experiences right here from The Farmhouse! Take a look inside!


Plan your meals with my FREE menu calendars!


Hi I’m Deanna!

Have I got a story to tell you!

I am glad you are here.

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and writer living my best life in Northern Arizona.

Follow along with THE FARMHOUSE.

My husband, Wayne and I purchased a new farmhouse and spend our time starting a small family farm including vegetable and flower gardens, fruit and nut trees, berry patches with raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. We hope to add chickens soon!

We are constructing a woodworking shop for Wayne. We share the process of our unusual building to be completed this Spring.

I love to bake and create new recipes. I love reviving old favorite recipes handed down from my grandma including canning and preserving food.

I started this blog in 2015 after developing MYOPIC DEGENERATION. I am partially blind in one eye, but want to prove that continuing a passion for living my best life is possible!

In 2016, I was also diagnosed with Stage 3b breast cancer at the age of 47. I am a proud breast cancer survivor. Read more about my BREAST CANCER JOURNEY.

There is so much more to me than just my circumstances though.
