About Me

First and foremost I’m just an ordinary guy who serves an extraordinary God.


I’m Marianito “Nitoy” M. Gonzales, I’m 41 yrs. old,  I’m a government employee, blogger and a freelance translator. My blog has been featured multiple times on Tim Challies Ala Carte and Aquila Report. I contribute articles for iDisciple Philippines, Treasuring Christ PH, Driven by The Gospel and The Network of CRCNA. I’m onboard as a volunteer contributor and translator for Driven by the Gospel and Treasuring Christ PH. I was part of the Filipino translation team of Coronavirus and Christ (John Piper) and currently leading a translation team for Risk is Right (John Piper) that will soon be published by OMF Lit. I facilitated a breakout session for iDisciple Philippines 2020 online conference. I also have been part of various book launch team and a beta reader most notably Humble Calvinism (Jeff Medders), Competing Spectacles (Tony Reinke) and Blogging for God’s Glory in A Clickbait World (Benjamin Vrbicek and John Beeson) in which my response to a questions is included to the appendix).

I’m happily married to Cristy-Ann since December 2016 and father to Agatha Christie. We worship, fellowship and serve at Faithway Community Baptist Church, Sta. Rita, Batangas City.

But all of this, I pray and humbly submit to the sovereignty of God, to use all of this for His purpose, which is to glorify and exalt His name.

If you have been blessed with my works and want to help me in future projects then you can do so by buying me a coffee or giving a tip over my Paymaya account ( Marianito Gonzales 09163315535).

About This Blog

Delighting Grace Blog is a collection of articles from my previous campus ministry blog, Bible lessons and Facebook Notes. Prior to that I have been blogging since 2004 and have websites way further.  But of course a new blog means new post. I’ll be posting often new post and please share it to your favorite social media. Although I’m a Calvinist, I feature books, people and events that is within the biblical, evangelical circle. It is my prayer that I through this blog I can exalt Christ and let Him be magnified. This new blog will feature:

  1. Interviews with different Christians and their ministry.
  2. Bible lessons I wrote and preach in different fellowships.
  3. Top list of things biblical and some fun stuff I like.
  4. My adventures in digging second hand/used books.
  5. A stab on issues that affects Christians.
  6. From time to time their be guest (and surprise) bloggers.

OK enough of this. Go and devour this blog. Start Delighting Grace….
