I'm trying to find a few verses about spiritual gifts. I belie that its in one of Paul's epistles. I believe it says
Some are called to be preachers, some prophets, some counselors...
Can anyone identify this for me?

There are several lists of spiritual gifts in the New Testament:
A quick google search of "Some are called to be preachers" will show that this text comes from Ephesians 4.
If you do not have access to the Internet, the tool you would use for any type of verse identification is called a Concordance. The most famous one, Strong's Concordance is just an index of every word in the King James Bible, arranged alphabetically, followed by a list of verses in which it appears.
Most Study Bibles will have a smaller concordance listed in the back.
Finally, there are several electronic concordances (I use Logos, many people love BibleWorks, and for free you can get e-Sword.)
These tools are specifically designed for those who have already "hid thy Word in [their] heart," that they might find where it says not to sin against Thee.
