Through all the ups and downs of her eventful young life, Beyonce has relied on one thing to keep her feet on the ground and her eyes on the road ahead. A devout Methodist, the southern belle's Christian faith has always been a priority.

"The thing that keeps me centred and grounded is knowing that I'm always protected and that God is in control of things," she explains. "Even the name of our group, Destiny's Child, we got out of the bible. . . For me it is about the way I carry myself and the way I treat other people. My relationship and how I feel about God and what he does for me is something deeply personal. It's where I came from, my family. I was brought up in a religious household and that's very important to me."
