“He Left Me”: A Family’s Search for True Faith


(April 4, 2011) Rare as it is, there can truly be a conflict between tradition and faith.

It is also rare to find a story that can really wrap itself around the plot of tradition versus faith. When you do find a book that speaks such a story, you know you have a piece of literature that is worth reading. “He Left Me” by C.M. Jones ( carries you through the entangled web of one couple’s conflict to decide between following their traditions, which have been deeply ingrained in them, or following their hearts that lead them to the Christian faith.

In “He Left Me”, husband and wife Tete Abula and Kenu Orteney are from Ghana, West Africa. They move to America in search of a better life not only for them but for their children. However, coming from a world where the traditional religion influences almost every decision you make, life outside their local community starts to become conflicted. Living in a different culture causes conflict for a family coming from a traditional African religion – in all their decisions, in the jobs they choose, the places they live, the food they eat. When they hear the call of Christianity, it’s up to them to decide whether they step out and follow their hearts or stay with what they already know.

C.M. Jones believes that through faith and writing, she can make significant changes in the world. Through the stories of characters that almost everyone can relate to, she is able to relay the message that nothing is impossible with God – something that most people in the world have yet to fully understand and embrace.

Well on her way to becoming a household name, C.M. Jones has completed several publications including her debut novel I Still Do and her latest one, Nothing is Too Hard for God. Her publishing company, HortonJones, Inc., publishes her work, which Jones established with her family. From the age of eight, Jones had already begun her writing career and vocation, creating Christian fiction stories, poems, musicals, and many other things. Being active as well in her drama club in school, Jones was able to further harness that writing ability. Most of her work revolves around Christianity and the themes of forgiveness, faith, and how the presence of Jesus Christ can really make a difference in one’s life. Aside from writing and publishing, Jones mentors young writers at the publication. She also holds several writing seminars and is a motivational speaker for many different occasions.

“Writing and mentoring is my ministry, and I do it all to the glory of God,” Jones says.

The next big thing for Jones is to see her work go on the big screen. Taken from true inspirations in her own life – her husband, children, and her actual faith – her stories are true creative reflections of a life strongly grounded in Christian faith.
