Called & Gifted for the Stock Market? PDF Print E-mail

The exuberant Rae Stabosz had a funny conversion on her way out of that Called & Gifted workshop in Chicago last summer.

"I started investing in the stock market this summer. So far, it's a fascinating adventure. In the past, the market bored me but I am willing to admit now that it was not so much boredom as prejudice and spiritual snobbery. I viewed it as "unworthy" a subject for study, for an aspiring saint.

That all changed when I took a Called and Gifted workshop this summer in Chicago, from the Catherine of Siena Institute. There I learned to get off my high horse and disabuse myself of the idea that money itself is the root of all evil. NO, NO, NO - it's the LOVE OF MONEY that is the root of all evil, or so the saying goes. I don't even know where the saying comes from.

Just goes to show that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.

It turns out that I score very high in the charism of Giving, one of whose manifestations is the ability to create wealth in order to give it generously where it is needed. I've always enjoyed being generous, and I've always enjoyed hustling for money, but I never put the two together before that workshop as two sides of the same charismatic coin.

So I'm having a blast in the market."


Rae is scheduled to reveal her secret recipe for making a quick and honorable fortune on Oprah next week. (Ok, that's a lie but she will tell you all about it on her blog.)

Buy low, sell high. Ditch those Starbucks stocks.

I have been regularly stunned and amazed at what God does through the Called & Gifted discernment process. I think of it as a divine "shock and awe" campaign. Rae's story just makes me grin.

Of course, the ultimate test of a charism is effectiveness. We'll know when she gives some of the those freshly minted dollars to the Institute! :-}

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time. A major Amtrak line in regular daily use by Americans is the Acela Express line, running between Boston and Washington, D. Financial and managerial accounting principles.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
