Houston Rockets: Celebrating 50 Seasons

Houston Rockets: Celebrating 50 Seasons

This is the one and only official 50th anniversary commemorative coffee table book of the Houston Rockets. Few teams in professional sports have forged a connection with their fans like the Houston Rockets. Fueled by great ownership, smart management, superstar talent, and selfless teammates that consistently put the franchise in a position to succeed, the Rockets have created a winning atmosphere on and off the court. The Rockets began as a San Diego-based expansion team in 1967 and quickly established themselves in 1968 when they drafted their first superstar, Elvin Hayes. Named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, Hayes led the Rockets to their first playoff appearance in just their second year of existence. The franchise drafted two more Rockets greats, Calvin Murphy and Rudy Tomjanovich, before it relocated to Houston and became the first NBA team in Texas. As the newly minted Houston Rockets, the team opened their doors to more all-time greats like Moses Malone and Ralph Sampson, and in 1984 drafted Hakeem Olajuwon, who went on to become one of the greatest NBA players of all time. Leslie Alexander took over the team in 1993, and with The Dream as its centerpiece, the franchise delivered back-to-back NBA Championships in 1994 and 1995. The Rockets gained the NBA s...

Divine Duct Tape: 2nd Edition: A Devotional Journey in Luke: finding ah-ha moments in an uh-oh life

Divine Duct Tape: 2nd Edition: A Devotional Journey in Luke: finding ah-ha moments in an uh-oh life

Life is full of issues. Control issues. Midlife issues. Can't-keep-my-calendar-straight to-save-my-life issues. And for some of us, messy lives include the challenges and unique blessings that come with parenting children with special needs. In our daily hold-it-together struggle, we can find ourselves feeling distant from God, isolated from others and longing to hear the reassuring, guiding voice of the One who holds the future. Helping us to hear that voice a little better, "Divine Duct Tape" is a 60-day devotional, part Bible study and part personal story. Conversational, honest and humorous, it invites you to join the journey of a mother with three teens (two sons with Asperger’s Syndrome) sharing relevant thoughts and challenges with us from Luke’s Gospel. In just a few verses each day, you will discover that whether we laugh at ourselves or cry over our struggles, we are not alone. More than just an ancient text or familiar words, the scriptures can draw us into a conversation with our Dearest Friend and Abba Father that give us daily perspective and hope.

God's Promises for You: No Promise of God is Empty of Power

God's Promises for You: No Promise of God is Empty of Power

Did you know that God has set you up to have an amazing life? When you became a Christian and you were born again, and at the very moment you turned your life over to Jesus, He said, “Awesome, now here’s My Word. If you do My Word, it will set you free! There’s power in it, and that power sets you up for an amazing life!” God has an amazing life for you! He’s done this all by His Son, Jesus, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, in order that you may have a victorious life, and experience all the promises of God. In the book God’s Promises for You, Pastor Kelli Anderson reveals how God’s promises really are for you, they are filled with the power to free you, and they will silence the voices of defeat around you.
